Electrical safety for construction and demolition sites

Taking necessary safety measures when working with electrical installations on construction and demolition sites is essential in maintaining a safe workplace for everyone involved.

Electrical installations on construction and demolition sites can pose serious risks to workers' safety. Safework SA has developed a booklet about safe electrical practices on building sites, called Building and construction industry guideline for safe electrical practices on construction and demolition sites – contact Safework SA for information.

The guidelines:

  • provide employers, employer and employee associations and their members with an industry-specific guideline
  • contribute to the development of electrical safety best practice for construction industry workplaces
  • contribute to reducing electrical injuries in the construction industry.

Electrical installations on construction and demolition sites must comply with AS/NZS 3012 Electrical Installations - Construction and Demolition Sites.
