How to plan to work safely around our network assets
This section provides information and advice on how you can keep safe when you're working near Western Power’s electricity network or around your home. This information should be used in conjunction with the standards and regulations applicable to your industry. You need to ensure that there are adequate risk management procedures in place before working around the electricity network.
It's your behaviour that is the last barrier between you and an incident. It's your duty of care to provide a safe workplace, to manage risk so far as is reasonably practicable and to protect against hazards. If you're unclear about your obligations we encourage you to seek guidance from guidelines specific to your industry.
Staying safe around the Western Power network is a shared responsibility
