    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies general requirements for work performed on live high-voltage electrical apparatus where live work methods are used. It is intended to for use with AS5804.2, AS5804.3 and AS5804.4, which specify particular requirements for glove and barrier work, stick work and barehand work.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out the minimum industry requirements for the high-voltage work methods for - (a) glove and barrier work;(b) stick work; and(c) barehand work.These requirements may be enhanced or supplemented, provided the risk assessment process associated with the change does not result in reduced safety standards. SPECIFIC WORK PRACTICES AND MAINTENANCE AND TESTING REQUIREMENTS ARE SET OUT IN PARTS 2, 3 AND 4 OF THIS STANDARD. PARTS 2, 3 AND 4 SHALL BE READ IN CONJUNCTION WITH THIS PART 1.This Standard does not constitute a high-voltage live work manual, nor does it set down high-voltage live work procedures and techniques. All procedures and techniques are to be developed by the network operator or service provider in accordance with the requirements in this Standard.For the purpose of this Standard, works such as the following are not considered as high-voltage live work and are excluded from this Standard:(i) Low voltage live work.(ii) High-voltage switching operations.(iii) Load and voltage readings and phasing identification.(iv) The measurement of distances to high-voltage conductors.(v) The safe removal of foreign objects on electrical apparatus where there is no risk of electrical flashover.NOTE: List items (i) to (v) are not a conclusive list of operational work excluded from this Standard but represents the work traditionally undertaken by authorized power company workers.This Standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this Standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
