May is Electrical Safety Month
May is Electrical Safety Month. We all depend on electricity to power our lives, but accidents can happen when electricity is improperly used.
It is no accident that safety is a top priority at Sun River Electric. We are committed to a culture of safety that is integral to our daily operations. Our lineworkers are required to wear personal protective equipment at all times when on the job. This includes special fire-resistant clothing that will self-extinguish, limiting potential injuries from burns and sparks. Insulated and rubber gloves are worn in tandem to protect from electrical shock. Our crews regularly discuss important safety issues pertaining to work within buildings and out in the field.
To promote safety education in our local communities, we give safety demonstrations in local schools and provide training to emergency services volunteers. We encourage the public to contact us if they see a downed power line or any other type of dangerous electrical situation. We strive to provide our communities with safe, reliable, and affordable electricity.
So, we encourage you to take a moment to plug into safety. Visit http://www.esfi.org for tips about how to keep you and your loved ones safe.
