WorkSafe Victoria has issued a reminder to everyone operating heavy vehicles and machinery to check for power lines, following a number of serious incidents that occurred over the past few months.

Last month there were 2 incidents that occurred, one involving a tip truck that came into contact with overhead power lines at a farm, damaging the truck and a second incident resulted in a truck driver being electrocuted.

In the construction industry, there were 7 serious incidents involving overhead power lines in the state since mid-November.

WorkSafe Health and Safety reminded businesses to ensure their workers aren’t put at risk from power lines when carrying out tasks.
