At CenterPoint Energy, we want you to be aware of the potential dangers of overhead and underground power lines. We also want you to know the state and federal laws and your responsibilities concerning them. (Click on the Texas Health and Safety Code for the Texas law regarding activities near power lines.)
We’re concerned about safety and your life. By applying some of the basic safety rules outlined on these pages, and a little common sense, you can work safely.
Remember, inspect your work site by looking around and above you before you start a job. Should power lines be in the vicinity, maintain your distance and make the power lines a priority through completion of the job.
If you would like to schedule a safety program at your construction site, industrial plant, or fire department, just call CenterPoint Energy at 713-945-6707.
