Working Around Electricity Assets

In December last year Powerco had an  incident,  and an alert went out re scaffolding and working too close to electricity assets.

They just found out today there has been another very near miss that occurred this week outside Harvey Norman with a different set of scaffolders and roofers.

They are very concerned that our roofers and scaffolders in Taranaki are not following the proper Close Approach Consent process and it’s a matter of if, not when, someone will be killed if erecting and dismantling scaffolding near their lines without the proper processes being followed continues.

Companies bringing onto their sites roofers and scaffolders, please reiterate this alert to them and please share this message amongst our wider business community.
