New code of practice for electrical industry

A COVID-19 code of practice has been developed by Master Electricians Australia for the electrical industry.

The government mandated that all businesses develop and abide by a code of practice in relation to the current pandemic. The code was effective as of Monday, 18 May 2020.

It has been designed to assist electrical contractors in managing the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus for their workers, customers and others in or near their work environments.

The suggestions within this code should be considered in conjunction with individual businesses risk assessments.
