Comments sought on new electricity code of practice for WA workplaces
The Work Health and Safety Commission has opened public consultation on a new code of practice for managing electrical risks in Western Australian workplaces.
The code is designed to help employers and workers manage risks associated with electrical work.
WHSC says the code “applies to all workplaces where a PCBU has management or control of electrical equipment, including electrical installations”
“It provides guidance on the risk management process, specific electrical hazards and controls, working de-energised, working near energised electrical parts, working in roof spaces, tools and equipment, high voltage electrical work and electricity in mines,” the Work Health and Safety Commission said.
Submissions are open until Friday, November 3, 2023.
Additional information is available on the WorkSafe WA website.
