The latest safety campaign from SafeWork NSW is aimed at protecting construction workers from digging into live electrical cables.
The campaign launched by SafeWork NSW and NSW electrical networks, “The Don’t know, Don’t Dig” campaign follows a 65 per cent increase in underground cable strikes in the Sydney region over the past 2 years.
The campaign’s message emphasizes the importance of finding out what’s below the ground before excavating.
NSW law requires that you have Dial-Before-You-Dig plans however only one in four workers that reported underground cable strikes over the past 2 years had these plans.
