The City of Statesville Electric Utilities department strives to work with safety always in mind. We also encourage all customers, visitors, and contractors to always keep safety in the forefront when working with or around electrical lines and equipment.

Tips to consider from OSHA on Electrical safety:

Electrical hazards can cause burns, shocks and electrocution (death).

  • Assume that all overhead wires are energized at lethal voltages. Never assume that a wire is safe to touch even if it is down or appears to be insulated.

  • Never touch a fallen overhead power line. Call the electric utility company to report fallen electrical lines.

  • Never operate electrical equipment while you are standing in water.

  • Never repair electrical cords or equipment unless qualified and authorized.

  • Always use caution when working near electricity.
