Electrical Safety


Electricity can't be seen, so you must always be aware of the dangers. Be mindful of your surroundings and stay away from power lines and substations.

Here are some tips to stay safe around electricity.

Safety At Home

Safety At Home

While electricity has become invaluable to our daily activities, it must be treated with respect. Learn about electrical safety inside and outside your home, and when engaging in outdoor recreational activities.

Help Keep Our Crews Safe

Our crews are there whenever you need them, day or night, to keep your lights on and your homes warm. When you see our crews working on the side of the road, please slow down, move over and follow the onsite safety measures to help keep them safe.

To make repairs and upgrades to our electricity system, our crews often have to complete work on the side of the road. Their unwavering focus must be on doing the work safely. You have a role to play too in helping to keep our crews safe. Utility vehicles are included in the list of designated vehicles covered by the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador's Move Over Law which requires drivers to slow down and move over when approaching those working by the side of the road. Stay focused on the road to protect yourself and our crews.
