If a Coworker Hits a Line
Stay away. Stay clear of any person or any object that is in contact
with a power line. Call 911 and the electric company immediately. Don't try to
rescue the victim. Stay away until rescue workers assure you the power has
been turned off.
If you touch someone who is in contact with electricity, you could be shocked
too. You can also be shocked if you touch the vehicle or equipment that person
is in, or the tool they are holding. Again, the best thing to do is to stay
far away and call for help.
Immediately call 911 and the electric company if someone accidentally
contacts a power line. Don't try to help the victim until you're sure the
power is off.
