                                  SAFETY


As farmworkers return to the fields, we urge you to be alert to the dangers of working near 
overhead power  lines.


• Keep equipment at least 10 feet from overhead lines − electricity can arc or “jump” to equipment 
that is too close to the line.
• Lower extensions like spray booms, planter arms or cultivators to the lowest setting whenever 
possible.
• When working near power lines, stay focused on equipment location and consider using a spotter. A 
spotter can see sagging wires that are not visible on a GPS and provide confirmation of safe 
clearance.
• Always look up and double check the area around your equipment to make sure it is not in contact 
with overhead lines.
• Prior to making any elevation changes within a power line right-of-way – through the addition of 
terraces, pond dams, buildings or any other addition that reduces the ground-to-line clearance – 
please contact us so we can ensure there are no safety code violations that will result from the 
change.
• Be aware of increased height when loading and transporting equipment on trailer beds.
• Designate preplanned routes that avoid electrical hazard areas.
• Never attempt to raise or move a power line.
• Know how to stay safe if equipment makes contact with power lines. 
• When planning for a new grain bin, keep electrical safety in mind (see reverse for more 
information).


Landowners and farm managers should make sure tenant farmers and ALL farmworkers are educated on 
these and other electric safety  precautions.
