Trees and electricity safety

PowerNet is committed to keeping people safe around our electricity networks. 

We maintain our lines, underground cables and other electrical assets to a high standard of safety and reliability and they are not dangerous when treated with the necessary caution. View the PowerNet Health and Safety Statement (PDF) for details about how PowerNet and Network safety leaders achieve these objectives.
