Explaining two key aspects of the Electrical (Safety) Regulations 2010

Energy Safety commissioned Standards New Zealand to prepare two video presentations for electrical practitioners that explain two key aspects of the Electrical (Safety) Regulations 2010:

The risk categorisation of prescribed electrical work (PEW), covering examples of high risk, low risk, and general work

The certification of electrical work, covering requirements such as Certificates of Compliance, Records of Inspection and Electrical Safety Certificates, explaining who is responsible for completing certificates, and the information that must be recorded. This video also explains the purpose of the Electricity and Gas High Risk Database, and record keeping requirements for those who carry out PEW.

Electricity (Safety) Regulations

Changes to the Electricity (Safety) Regulations came into effect in 2013. Energy Safety, the Electrical Workers Registration Board, and Standards New Zealand developed the following presentation to assist practitioners in understanding and preparing for these changes. The presentation also provides an update on requirements when registering through the Electrical Workers Registration Board, along with changes to AS/NZS 3000 Electrical installations.

This presentation is an update to information we provided in September 2011 on the Electricity (Safety) Regulations.
