Powerline Safety in Ontario
From 1998 to 2004, 46 electrocutions occurred in Ontario as a result of contact with powerlines. Powerline contact represents 75% of all outdoor fatalities, and 75% of occupational deaths involving powerline contact results from ladders contacting powerlines.
The Electrical Safety Authority and Local Distribution Companies such as PowerStream are working together to remind Ontarians of the potential hazards associated with overhead powerlines, and to re-educate them on the importance of following basic safety steps to keep themselves safe at Home, at Play, and at Work. For more information, please visit the Powerline Safety website www.powerlinesafety.info.
To further promote electrical safety locally, PowerStream is proud to be a corporate sponsor of the Community Safey Village of York Region.
