Stay safe throughout snake season

I was recently on a job and came accross an unwelcome resident of the 750KVA Kiosk substation I was inspecting.

There is nothing quite like a 2m Easter Brown or King Brown snake looking directly at you. Their eyes are piercing and it is a very unnerving feeling when you back away.

As we come into warmer weather and the snakes are become more active, it is something we all definetly need to be wary of when living in Australia.

Keep your “Snake Bite First Aid” knowledge up to date just in case.
