The Ga East Municipal NADMO Director, Mr Seth Kissi offered this advice after visiting Dome, Kwabenya, Agbogba, Ashongman and other parts of the Municipality where people are doing business and are also staying under GRIDCo high tensions.
According to Mr. Set kissi, the danger of trading under such high tension cables far outweigh the profits of any business transaction.
He revealed further that, due to the weight of the cables and fire outbreaks, the wires could snap or sag, thereby causing electrical shock.
He said this could lead to disabilities, life threatening injuries or even death.
Mr. Seth Kissi said the safest distance to the wires should be 5.5 meters or 11 steps away.
He further advised the public to observe the safety rules to avoid electrocution or any kind of electrical accident.
