You may be required to comply with these guidelines if you are an electricity network operator of, or a contractor working on, a network that is not legally required to have a safety management system.
This guide provides industry best practice and essential information and guidance in managing and undertaking street works associated with the provision of underground utility services in public road reserves.
As a network operator or contractor you have a duty to carry out your activities safely. You may demonstrate that you have met this duty by complying with a relevant standard or code of practice. If your network is legally required to have a safety management system you should instead ensure your work complies with that.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
