Harvester brings down farmyard overhead power line

Scottish Woodlands Toolbox Talk

The harvesting team where taking access through a farmyard to a harvesting block. The boom of the harvester snagged a ‘private’ overhead power line which was running from roof to roof of the farm buildings. The cable broke and fell to the ground.
The powerline had not been seen or identified at the worksite scoping visit and the machine driver did not notice it on the day.

No one was hurt in the incident and there was no identified discharge of electricity either to the machine or to the ground when the cable fell.

Prevention - It is a Forest Industry requirement for all machinery to prominently display within the cab an ‘electricity warning sign and the machine heights in its travelling modes’.
