    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides workers on low-voltage electrical installations with: (a) the principles of safe working practices; and (b) recommended procedures for safe working practices.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard outlines principles and procedures of safe work, organization and performance on or near low-voltage electrical installations and equipment. It provides a minimum set of procedures, safety requirements and recommendations to manage the hazards associated with electricity, specifically arc blast, arc flash, electric shock and electrocution. Adopting these will provide a safe working environment for work on or near low-voltage electrical installations (see Clause 1.6.9) and equipment (see Clause 1.6.8).
