Do Not Illegally Disconnect Electricity Supply Before Renovations or Demolitions, Tradies Warned

electrical supply

Tradespeople have been warned not to illegally disconnect electricity supply before renovations or demolitions as this is a practice that endangers not only workers but members of the public.

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland have urged contractors and tradies not to evade the Energex or Ergon Energy supply abolishment processes before demolition or renovation work to avoid any incidents from occuring.

In the recent past there have been a number of incidents which endangered the public and workers where live electrical cables owned and operated by Energex or Ergon Energy were tampered with and then left exposed, a risk to anyone who comes around it.

The authorities are reminding tradies that to avoid serious electrical incidents or fatalities, the correct process must be coordinated in advance through the retailer with Energex or Ergon Energy.
