Electrical safety codes of practice

A code of practice provides practical guidance for people who have work health and safety duties. These codes give guidance on:

  • how to achieve the standards required under the Act
  • effective ways to identify and manage risks.

A code of practice applies to anyone who has a duty of care in the circumstances described in the code. In most cases, following an approved code of practice would achieve compliance with the health and safety duties in the Act, in relation to the subject matter of the code.

Like regulations, codes of practice deal with particular issues and do not cover all hazards or risks which may arise. The health and safety duties require duty holders to consider all risks associated with work, not only those for which regulations and codes of practice exist.

Below are the four codes of practice that relate specifically to electrical safety:
