July 5, 2021 The Star Page 7 Look up... your life may depend on power line safety Anyone on the farm who works with tractors with front end loaders,- portable grain augers, oversized wag- ons, fold-up cultivators, large com- ‘bines, irrigation pipe and other tall equipment should take extra caution to avoid electrocution by accidently ‘ coming into contact with overhead power lines. Identifying overhead power line safety principles is one of the aims of Central States Center for Agricultural Safety and Health (CS-CASH). This University of Nebraska Medical Center group (https://www.unmc.edu/pub- lichealth/feedyard/) is conducting two research projects (funded by Na- tional Institutes of Occupational Safety and Health) that are designed to make a positive impact on the sus- tainability of cattle feedyards through increased safety and health efforts. Electrocution occurs when a path to the ground is created for the elec— trical current. If a human body touches a poWer source or comes into , contact with a ripple effect from a 'downed power line, electricity will attempt to travel through the body. The result can be serious injury or death. Each year, 62 farm workers are electrocuted and 3.6% of deaths among youth under the age of 20 are caused by electrocution. Among the types of electrocution accidents that have occurred include incidents such as workers lifting 30-foot aluminum irrigation pipes to a horizontal posi— tion under high-voltage lines and moving a portable grain auger just far enough to come into contact with overhead power lines. “The Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) stipulates that irrigation pipe cannot be stored within 100 feet of overhead power lines,” Aaron Yoder, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Associate Profes— sor, Biological Systems Engineering, UNL, and University of Nebraska Medical Center Associate Professor, Environmental, Agricultural and Oc- cupational Health, says. “All equip- ment and irrigation water streams must be kept at least 10 feet away from high-power voltage lines.” All overhead power lines should be treated as though they are deadly. Farmers and farm workers should al- Ways check to see how close power linesareataetheir work area. Keepe equipmnte'rafifipperatgrs at least 10 feet from” overhead power lines. Using a spotter to warn equipment operators of close proximity of a power line can help reduce electro— cution potential. When working with irrigation, be aware that water conducts electricity. Be exceptionally careful when oper- ating Sprayers, planters and cultiva— tors. Know the height and width of your farm equipment to help prevent accidental contact. “Keep in mind that not all power lines are located overhead,” Yoder says. “Call 811 to locate any under- ground power lines before digging in an area.” When transporting equipment, de- termine ahead of time the clearance height for farm equipment.

Priest identified as child abuser The Diocese of Fargo has been in- formed by the Diocese of Lansing, MI that after an investigation, accu- sations of sexual misconduct with a minor made against the late Bishop James Sullivan, sixth Bishop of Fargo, and previously a priest of the Dio- cese of Lansing, have been deemed credible. The Diocese of Lansing has added Bishop Sullivan’s name to its list of clergy with credible ac- cusations of sexual misconduct with aminor. ' ‘ e As a result of this, the Diocese of Fargo has also added Bishop Sulli- van’s name to its list of clergy who served or ever lived within the Dio- ‘cese of Fargo who are on the list of another diocese/religious order. The accusations allege the inci- dents took place several decades ago when Bishop Sullivan was a priest in the Lansing Diocese. There have been no allegations made against Bishop Sullivan during his time as Bishop of Fargo or after his retire-1 ment. Bishop Sullivan passed away June 12, 2006 in Fargo, and cannot re- spond to the allegations. Sullivan Middle School, part of the St. John Paul 11 Catholic Schools network, was named after Bishop Sullivan. Due to this situation, Sulli- van Middle School has been renamed Sacred Heart Middle School. 1 Sullivan Each year, 62 farm workers are electrocuted and 3.6% of deaths among youth under the age of 20 are caused by electro- cution. utility company for line heights. Never attempt to measure them your- self. Whenever possible, use pre- planned routes that avoid power lines during equipment transport. On farm equipment that features parts capable of vertical, lateral or swing motion, install a durable sign, legible from a distance of 12 feet that reads: “Un- lawful to operate this equipment within 10 feet of high voltage lines.” When power lines are down, it’s not possible to determine if the line is live just by observation. Because electricity always seeks the easiest and‘shortest path to the ground, it’s possible to be electrocuted just by coming too close to a downed wire.

If that object is wet, the chance for arc- ing increases.” If a power line falls acrossor near . machinery while it’s being operated, DO NOT attempt to exit the equip- ment. Immediately call 911. If any bystanders are present, they must stay away from the equipment. ' “If it’s necessary to get out of the equipment, jump as far as possible from the equipment, making sure no part of your body comes in contact with the equipment when you land,” Yoder says. “Keep both feet together, as if they were bound, and shuffle or hop at least 40 .feet away from the equipment.“ If equipment hits a utility pole, the surrounding area may become ener- gized. In this case, the safest place is inside the equipment cab or on the equipment. Even if you don’t touch- a downed power line, stray voltage could result in electrocution. ' “If you’re transporting equipment and come across a downed power line, stay in. or on the equipment,” Yoder says. “The ground may be electrified. If you have a phone with you, call 911. If you don’t have a' phone, stay with your equipment. The power company will come to the location to check on the power dis— ruption.” Never attempt to pu11 equipment away from a power line or pole.

To safely do so, don’t allow any part of your body to touch the equipment and the ground at the same time. Use these steps to safely move away from the vehicle/equip- ment: 0 Stay seated and open the door completely, looking around to ensure ’ no wires are exposed. 0 Standin the door frame with feet together and arms crossed. 0 As carefully as possible, jump as far as possible from the vehicle, keeping feet together and arms crossed. Keeping your feet together helps prevent electricity from flowing through one foot to the other, causing serious injury or death. ' Feet together, hop at least 33 feet (approximately 33 hops) from the site of the accident, then slowly slide your feet apart. If there’s a' sensation of tingling in your feet, hop further away. If hopping isn’t possible, shuf- fle your feet slowly, keeping both feet on the» ground at all times. The far- ther you move away from the power source, the voltage will diminish. - Immediately contact911 or the power company. After moving away from the ve- hide/equipment, never attempt to get back on it or touch it. Doing so could result in electrocution.

Anyone in the area of a downed power line or damaged electrical pole is in danger of electrocution because electricity can travel from a vehii ole/equipment to the ground. Nevei: run toward a vehicle after witnessing and accident involving power lines: Instead, call 911 and/or the power company for help. “If someone comes in contact with an energized wireor power line; don’t touch the victim until you’re absolutely certain the power has been turned off,” Yoder says. “Otherwise; you can become a victim of the elec% trical current, too.” If a device is the source of electrig cal power, unplug it or cut the power at the service panel. Once the power has been shut off, call for emergency assistance. If the victim isn’t breathf ing, administer CPR. Loosen the vice tim’s clOthing, keep them in a horizontal position and keep them warm.
