Updated electrical safety codes of practice 2020

After the automatic expiry of three electrical safety codes on 1 January 2020, further guidance on electrical safety standards has been made available by Queensland’s Electrical Safety Office. The updated electrical safety codes have incorporated minor amendments, following reviews for technical accuracy, usability and readability, supplemented by targeted consultation with key stakeholders.

The three updated codes of practice include the Electrical Safety Code of Practice 2020 — Electrical equipment rural industry, the Electrical Safety Code of Practice 2020 — Working near overhead and underground electric lines and the Electrical Safety Code of Practice 2020 — Works.

The codes of practice are intended to provide continued guidance for industry and workers on electrical safety standards for the use of electrical equipment in the rural industry, for working near overhead and underground electric lines and for the works of an electricity entity.
