Accident Summaries

The Energy Safety summary of reported electrical and gas accidents contains brief descriptions of Energy Safety investigations into electrically-caused serious injuries (shock or burn) and significant property damage caused by fire. It also lists notifiable gas accidents reported to Energy Safety during each calendar year.

In order to determine trends, notifiable electrical injury accidents and notifiable and non-notifiable gas accident information collected since 1993 has also been analysed.
