When working near power cables and with the boom fully extended, the safe recommended working distance is 9 metres from wooden poles, and 15 metres from steel pylons.
Operatives also need to remember that high winds can cause cables to sway in your direction, meaning that you may not be as far away from power cables as originally intended and constant vigilance is required.
