WA Bulletin on Ceiling Space & Roof Work

01/03/2013

Following some recent incidents involving electrical shock and falls, WorkSafe WA has issued a safety bulletin about the risks and required controls for working on roofs and in ceiling spaces.

WorkSafe warns that isolating the electrical supply at the switchboard does not turn off electricity from the street coming in to the switchboard, and some incidents have involved contact with the live cables connected to switchboards.

A copy of the safety bulletin can be downloaded from www.worksafe.wa.gov.au
