Seeking nominations for Electrical Safety Committees

The terms of the Electrical Safety Education Committee (ESEC) and Electrical Equipment Committee (EEC) expire on 29 April 2019. The Office of Industrial Relations (OIR) is seeking nominations for consideration by the Minister for appointment to a new term of both committees.

The function of the ESEC is to give advice and make recommendations to the Electrical Safety Board about the promotion of electrical safety in workplaces and the broader community. The function of the EEC is to give advice and make recommendations to the Electrical Safety Board about the safety, energy efficiency and performance of electrical equipment.

The two committee must each meet at least four times a year. Members must also undertake pre-meeting reading, contribute at meetings and working parties, and will be encouraged to promote and attend relevant OIR events. Members are not remunerated but will receive reimbursement for out of pocket expenses associated with meeting attendance (in accordance with government guidelines).

Who should nominate and how?

Nominations are invited from persons with practical experience and competence in either the promotion and marketing of electrical safety, or in relation to electrical equipment. Nominations will be considered by the Minister on a range of criteria, including: experience and competence and seeking to satisfy the Queensland Government’s Women on Boards initiative (achieving 50% representation of women on government bodies by 2020). OIR strongly encourages women to nominate.

If you would like to nominate, please email OIRBoardsandCommittees@oir.qld.gov.au.
