Danger 

It's a fact - electricity is extremely dangerous.

You could be seriously hurt or killed if you play in substations, near overhead power lines, around electricity pylons or on mini pillars.

Electricity is dangerous because:

  • It tries to find the easiest and quickest path to the ground
  • Human bodies contain 70% water and water conducts electric current better than air

If you get too close to a substation or power lines then electricity could pass through the water in your body to get to the ground. This will electrocute you and you might die.
