Energy Safety commissioned Standards New Zealand to prepare 2 video presentations for electrical practitioners that explain two key aspects of the Electrical (Safety) Regulations 2010:

  • The risk categorisation 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.

These videos can be viewed on the Standards New Zealand website
