Eskom Public Safety

What is Eskom Public Safety and why is it important to Eskom?

Every year, innocent lives are lost and people are seriously injured as a consequence of the unsafe use of electricity. Some of the biggest contributors to these electricity-related incidents are:  contacts with low-hanging electrical cables and fallen power lines, illegal connections, vandalism, cable theft, substandard wiring, etc.

One of Eskom’s biggest priorities is to educate the public about the dangers associated with the unsafe use of electricity. By always shining the spotlight on these incidents and warning the public, Eskom aims to reduce the number of injuries and deaths , in support of their ‘Zero Harm’ policy.
