Safety Tips For Contractors


Whether framing, yard work, roofing, or working with electricity, contractors have an inherently dangerous profession. In 2014 alone, 802 contractors died from work injuries, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), and exposure to electricity rates the fourth highest cause of death. BLS reports that between 2011 and 2014, nearly 250 contractors died due to electricity. Lake Region & Safe Electricity shares tips to help contractors stay safe when working with or around electricity.


When working with and around electricity, follow all safety precautions. Always maintain situational awareness and identify the location of overhead power lines before working on outdoor projects. Always look


up and out before moving tall objects near overhead lines, and keep equipment at least 10 feet away from power lines in all directions at all times. Always call 811 a few business days before beginning any project that involves digging. The project area will be surveyed and marked for public utilities within two to three days. When digging, respect the marks. If any digging must be done within that zone, excavate by hand with extreme caution. Follow safe practices when using extension cords. Always use properly rated and laboratory certified extension cords to avoid the risk of shock and fire. Never remove the grounding pin (or third prong) from an extension cord to make it fit into a two-prong outlet, and replace any cords that are damaged. Never use power tools in wet conditions. When water and electricity mix, the result can be deadly. Whether you plan on working on a project indoors or outdoors, plug your equipment into a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) to protect against electrical shock. A GFCI constantly monitors the flow of electricity through a circuit and will shut the circuit down if it senses a ground fault.
