Think before you drill
Life can be lost within seconds or terrible life-changing burns inflicted if you come into contact with electricity. But, taking a moment to accurately locate service cables buried underground or within walls, before starting work at a property can avoid this.
UK Power Networks is running a 'Think before you drill' initiative, reminding workers including to work safe, use cable-locating tools and think ‘electricity’.
Everyone has the right to go home safely to their families at the end of a working day. Please read the safety advice and think before you drill.
