Provide your feedback on DR AS/NZS 4836:2022 by 1 June

DR AS/NZS 4836:2022 Safe working on or near low-voltage electrical installations and equipment

The draft standard has been significantly rewritten and is now a much more prescriptive document. 

The major changes that will affect contractors include:

  • Increased requirements on supervision
  • Heavy emphasis on risk assessment to minimise risk associated with working on or near electrical equipment
  • Arc flash requirements have been increased
  • PPE requirements have been raised for all electrical related tasks

Members are encouraged to review the draft standard and provide feedback for Standards Australia prior to 1 June 2022.

NECA National have compiled feedback received to date and released a webinar discussing the proposed changes. 

The webinar, draft standard, compiled feedback and blank feedback template are all available here on TKB.
