The best way to prevent electrocution from contact with power lines is to shut off the power. But when that isn’t possible, remind workers to use barriers and stay a safe distance away.

Joseph Janisch, 34, an employee of Highway Technologies, was working on replacing guard rails on the side of a highway. While operating a piece of construction equipment, he struck an overhead power line. He was taken to the hospital where he passed away.

He was a father of four, who was remembered as always being willing to help anyone.
