Two video presentations for electrical practitioners explaining the key aspects of the Electrical (Safety) Regulations 2010 for prescribed electrical work. The videos were produced for WorkSafe in 2016 by Standards New Zealand.

The videos show:

  • The risk categories of prescribed electrical work (PEW), including examples of high risk, low risk, and general work
  • The certification of electrical work, covering requirements such as Certificates of Compliance, Records of Inspection and Electrical Safety Certificates, explaining who is responsible for completing certificates, and the information that must be recorded. This video also explains the purpose of the Electricity and Gas High Risk Database, and record keeping requirements for those who carry out PEW.
