Upper Peninsula Power Company (UPPCO) Path to Ground Demonstration
This safety demonstration will educate participants on how to remain safe around electricity and prevent becoming a path to ground. Using a tabletop example of a distribution system that includes poles, conductors and transformers, qualified instructors will energize lines at 10,000 volts to demonstrate potential dangers of electrical contact.
The presentation vividly shows the effects of contacting with high voltage electricity. Several accident scenarios are demonstrated, including:
· Trees, ladders and antennas near power lines
· Ropes and kite strings near power lines
· Downed wires
· Digging into danger
