Farm Guide VIC : 2008 - 2009
86 Farm Safety “Farmers and others using GPS equipment must always stay alert and make sure they are well prepared before starting work because farming activities often create situations where equipment and vehicles come dangerously close to powerlines. There are obvious risks in taking this technology for granted, so we must all remain vigilant about maintaining electrical safety. Farm equipment such as tractors, trucks, augers, grain bins, excavating equipment and elevating platforms can all reach overhead powerlines. People wanting further information about operating machinery near overhead powerlines should phone Powercor on 13 22 06.
