Leisure activities

This safety information is for anyone who plans to undertake any leisure activity or erect a temporary structure near our overhead network.

Tips for staying safe -

  • If possible, avoid pitching a tent or caravan directly under an overhead line.
  • Always carry out a risk assessment and be aware of overhead lines when erecting any tv ariels or radio masts to caravans.
  • Do not light fires or BBQ’s underneath overhead lines.
  • Do not fly kites in areas where overhead lines are present, kites strings WILL conduct electricity.
  • If you have overhead lines on your site, contact us for free safety information.
  • Fishing rods and boat masts WILL conduct electricity.
  • When fishing, keep atleast 30 metres away from overhead lines and cast with care.
  • Rubber boots or waders will not protect you.
