A WorkSafe BC Safety Video on Ladder Safety
Always "Take a Second Look" when planning your work activity, especially when working around power lines. Older neighbourhoods have overhead power lines providing power to your home and often these lines are low and within reach of a ladder
In this WorkSafe BC video, a house painter contacts a power line with a ladder. A work plan should always be created by a supervisor and communicated to all workers on site to reduce the risk of electrical contact.
