UK Power Networks have launched a safety animation aimed at trade’s people – including roofers, scaffolders, tree surgeons – to remind you to’ look out look up’ for overhead electricity wires.
Life can be lost within seconds or life-changing burns inflicted if you come into contact with overhead electricity cables. Either way, back at home your family are left feeling devastated and all because you were in a hurry, got distracted or didn’t bother.
The simple step of taking a moment to ‘look out look up’ before starting work can avoid all danger when carrying a ladder, erecting scaffolding or working on a roof with power lines nearby.
UK Power Networks is running a BeBrightStaySafe campaign, with the aim of reminding construction and tradespeople to work safely and think about overhead electricity lines.
The company’s vast cable networks deliver more than a quarter of the UK’s electricity making sure the lights stay on across London, the South East and the East of England.
