Electrical Standards

Electrical Standards keeping everyone safe

Electricians and electrical engineers must prioritise their quality of work, performance and most importantly, safety of all involved.  

Those working within the electrical industry have a responsibility to follow procedures to keep themselves and the community safe. Electricians, electrical engineers, designers and manufacturers must ensure all products, installations and projects meet a wide variety of Standards and compliance requirements.  

A standardised approach that enables the safe installation, maintenance and use of equipment is essential in every electrical business. Standards provide the important information needed to create a safe work environment, implement proper procedures for installations, gain a better understanding for the use and maintenance of equipment and more.
