Safety Spotter

We can spot for overhead electrical hazards anywhere in the State of #Victoria. This one is for #newinfrastructure #watermains on the urban fringe.

NB. You can't see the overhead lines in this photo (thanks to Rod) but maybe that's why we're there? 🤔

Students at Box Hill High School are in for a treat with their staged return to on-site schooling with this newly covered sports court completed by the shade-sail specialists Greenline Group.

It's not always "plain sailing" though. With HV lines not far away on the Middleborough Road side, it's important to tick all the boxes:
✅ Permit arranged
✅ Spotter in place
✅ Safe work methods

Thanks to John for the photos (Y)

A serious workplace incident yesterday when an excavator hit an underground electrical main: two injuries including one in a critical condition by the time paramedics arrived. 😥

Underground assets can be especially hazardous. The first step to minimise the risk is to call Dial Before You Dig Vic/Tas. The safest way to expose the conductors is usually by hydro-excavation and always use an approved spotter when carrying out works around them.

It's not yet known what went wrong here, but our spotters are trained in dealing with underground as well as overhead hazards. We wish both workers a speedy recovery.

Not much is known about this one - other than 11 kV in those overhead conductors ⚡️

We would assume this was a fatality 😥

Some very graphic images of the aftermath of contact with HV lines involving a boom lift. 😮

Fortunately it was only property damage, no loss of lives this time
