Maintaining your distance from overhead power lines
Generally, the type of work being performed dictates the rules governing the safe distance to an overhead power line or electrical equipment. The two specific types are work involving non-qualified electrical workers, people, materials, and non-crane equipment, and work involving cranes and derricks. For both, the safe working distances, also known as minimum approach distances, for overhead electrical lines and equipment are somewhat complex. Please refer to the regulating authority if you have any questions or confusion.
