WorkSafe WA and Building and Energy (formerly EnergySafety) have issued a safety alert on the importance of awareness of electrical hazards in roof spaces ahead of new regulations which came into effect on Monday 14 May 2018 in the state.

Changes to safety regulations require the main switch be switched off prior to work for reward being undertaken in ceiling spaces of domestic type buildings.

By law tradies will be required to switch the main off before entering the ceiling space.

The ban doesn’t apply to homeowners just yet but it is strongly recommended that they do the same.
