Electricity is an integral part of modern day society and is a critical component for many industries. Electricity is also inherently dangerous with the potential to cause serious injury and death.

The following bulletins provide information on safe practices relating to the use of electricity and the technical and safety standards for electrical installations.

Notification requirement

It is a requirement under legislation to notify NT WorkSafe of all electric shocks which occur in the workplace, regardless of if the shock resulted in an injury or not.

In planning and undertaking work it is important to understand the risks and responsibilities incumbent upon the owners, operators and contractors intending to organise and undertake the work.

The bulletins and forms presented below outline the regulatory documents used in the Northern Territory to regulate the electrical industry. All forms must be completed correctly, clearly and contain relevant information.
