SaskPower back with annual reminder to "Look Up and Live"

SaskPower is once again reminding farmers to "Look up and Live" this seeding season.

Things are underway for many parts of the province, leading SaskPower to call for all producers, farmers, and large equipment operators to stay safe this spring.

According to their release, in 2021, SaskPower saw 288 farm-related power line incidents in Saskatchewan, and one tragic fatality. In 2020, SaskPower reported 306 power line incidents involving farm equipment.

“We understand that as the weather gets warmer, there is a push to get seed in the ground as quickly as possible - and sometimes, this rush can lead to a collision involving a power line or a power pole,” said Nidal Dabghi, Director of Safety at SaskPower. “Safety is our priority, and it’s our goal to have everyone working in the fields this farming season come home safe, and without incident.”
