Guidelines for the safe management of high voltage (HV) installations

Information status

All documents issued prior to 1 July 2017 were issued by the former Department of Commerce. Documents listed here are the latest versions available, but may be subject to review. For more information on this document, please contact online@dmirs.wa.gov.au.

These guidelines for the safe management of high voltage electrical installations are issued under Section 33AA of the Electricity Act 1945 (WA) by the Director of Energy Safety and are endorsed by WorkSafe.

The risks and potential consequences of an electrical incident involving high voltage are significantly higher than low voltage due to the much higher quantities of energy involved. This justifies stringent safety designs and operating procedures to prevent injury to persons and major damage to electrical installations and buildings.

EnergySafety strongly recommends compliance with the practices and procedures set out in these guidelines. Should you have any suggestions and comments on these guidelines, please send them to EnergySafety in writing.
