Safety for kids

We use electricity all the time. It lets us turn things on - lights, TVs, fridges and ovens.

BUT, electricity is powerful and dangerous too – it can travel through people and give them a shock!

Important safety messages

  • Stay away from power boxes, substations and electrical worksites. 
  • Never jump, sit, kick or poke anything inside a power box.
  • Don’t throw things into power lines. If you see shoes on the power lines, do not try to get them down!

  • Flying a kite into power lines can give you a shock. Make sure you always look up and check for power lines before flying a kite.
  • Stay away from power lines that have fallen on the ground. You can still get a shock. 
  • Trees growing into power lines can give you a shock. Make sure you always look up and check for power lines before climbing a tree.
