There are many things to be aware of when working near electricity. These risks can be even greater on farms where physical damage to power systems can accidentally be caused by livestock, vehicles, machinery, equipment and workers.
By working together we can ensure safe and reliable power supplies for you, your family, employees and the community.
Make sure you know the location of all electrical infrastructure on or near your property, including overhead and underground electricity networks. If you see an electrical emergency or damaged electrical equipment, call Horizon Power immediately.
