FPL Employee providing electrical safety information
Electrical Safety

We understand that the main service we provide – electricity – can pose a danger if not properly used. Therefore, we provide information to the public regarding the safe use of electricity and how to work safely near power lines.

To educate the public, FPL launched a safety program more than 10 years ago to alert businesses and their employees about the dangers of working near power lines. The program features six key safety rules and includes U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations listing minimum safe approach distances from power lines for workers and equipment. Safety 6 is part of FPL's numerous safety initiatives under its ZERO Today! program.
