Electrical Industry Switches on with New Workplace Safety Guide

If electricity is not properly managed by workers it can cause serious injury and death and unfortunately, on average, between 2003–15 11 workers died as a result of contact with electricity. With the correct knowledge of potential hazards and how to prevent them, there is an opportunity to reduce this number and ensure workplaces remain injury free.

Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with Master Electricians Australia (MEA) have released the latest edition of the Electrical Industry Guide to Workplace Safety 2018/19. Providing key safety information that is most relevant to the electrical industry with the aim of reducing workplace injuries and deaths.

The topics covered on this year’s Guide include:

  • New Electric Wiring Standard
  • Battery Storage Equipment – Safety
  • Safety Switches
  • Electrical Practices
     

This year’s Guide features Augmented Reality (AR), a digital interactive experience, aimed at providing another interactive layer to print. By simply scanning over any AR capable content using the free Pro-Vis AR app, users can access further information relating to work safety, contributing to the engagement and retention of information.
