Keeping you safe

Safety on the farm

Farm accidents can cause severe injuries, death, and damage to property and livestock. Most accidents are preventable.

Do-it-yourselfer? Don’t get shocked!

Manitoba Hydro wants to keep you safe. Remember, even a little current can kill. If you feel a shock while using an electric tool, safely discard it the first time it shocks you — the next time you may not be so lucky.

Dig safe – know what’s below

If you’re planning a home project that involves digging – fence post holes, planting shrubs, installing a sprinkler system, or putting in a flower bed – first find out if there are any underground natural gas and electrical lines.

How to spot a scam

Scammers are always finding new ways to steal your money. They’re even taking advantage of the pandemic by preying on people’s fears – threatening to turn your power off within half an hour if you don’t pay immediately.

Keeping your home healthy and safe

Manitoba Hydro’s latest safety public service announcements feature our Public Safety and Education Coordinator Linda Carter providing safety tips for working and living around your home during the pandemic.

Electrical safety at home

The uncertainty of what will happen, distraction and fatigue mean we might not pay attention to what we normally would. That’s why it’s vital to take an extra moment to make sure your home and family are safe.

Tree trimming

Trees near power lines can cause outages and start fires. If they become energized, they can injure or kill people.
