Electric shocks in the mining industry

25 May, 2020

Five electric shock incidents were notified to the NSW Resources Regulator during April 2020. A further two were notified in May.

Mine operators, and other PCBUs, should review their electrical engineering control plans to ensure that risk controls for electric shock are appropriate for the activities at the mine. 

This should include a review of how effectively the risk controls are being implemented. Reference should be made to the Electrical engineering control plan code of practice, which provides guidance in respect to these matters.
