Oct. 6, 2015

Do you and your team know what to do if a piece of equipment is struck by lightning or comes in contact with an electric transmission line? Quick and proper action could save serious injury or even loss of life. Since mine sites are often at high altitudes and have no trees, mining equipment is often the highest point and a target for lightning. It is also common for truck beds and crane booms to accidentally contact electric lines.
