How to comply:

  • Yellow Zone:
    • A spotter is required at all times.
    • Create a SWMS.
  • Red Zone:
    • Contact your power supply company and high voltage (HV) contractor.
    • Only qualified contractors are permitted to work on HV.
    • Your power supply company will issue permits and special condition’s or isolate the power depending on the works.

If the worksite is near overhead electrical power lines, before any work commences, you must follow the relevant No Go Zone safety procedures:

• No work is to commence until ‘permission’ has been granted. Employers may obtain permission from the electricity company.

• Alternatively, employers will be deemed to have gained permission if they have developed safe systems of work using industry specific No Go Zone safety procedures endorsed by the Utilities Safety Committee.

• Industry specific No Go Zone safety procedures are available from the Office of the Chief Electrical Inspector, WorkSafe Victoria or the Office of Gas Safety.

• You must follow these safe systems of work at all times. If you cannot comply with these safety procedures, then NO work shall be undertaken without permission from the electricity company.
