Can anyone in NZ or 0ZZ provide suggestions on where I may obtain information that will help me prove I am operating my Electrical Contracting Business in an Electrically Safe manner.

Regards,

400volt.

400V,
Welcome to ECN, mate!.
(Nice see a few of you Aussie fellas getting in touch with us!)
I suggest that you get in contact with NECA(National Electrical and Communications workers Assoc.) regarding this.
You can find them by clicking on the following link: www.neca.asn.au

400V,
I assume that you are talking about "selling
yourself" to a prospective client, as in your ability to install work safely.
Is there a Gold Card system where you are?.
I would actively seek the help of Dapo, in this respect, as he is a bit closer to home than what I am.
Dapo, what are your ideas on this?.

How Trumpy,

What is required by certain legislation in OZZ is that ELectrical Contractors need to prove that they are operating their electrical business in a manner that is electrically safe.

400V,
Could you please be a wee-bit more specific as to what type of work, this applies?.
(hate to ask such a silly question)
Is it general Health and Safety around the workplace/construction sites?.
Or are you wanting to know about Safety as it applies to ELECTRICAL WORK specifically?.
