Safety Advice 7 (NZ) March 2022

  • Safety Advice #7 - Theft of Earthing Systems

Recently Orion has seen a dramatic increase in theft of copper from our main earths at sites. These thieves are risking their lives and putting our people,
our service providers and the public at risk of harm.
To help us stamp out this dangerous, illegal activity we ask our service providers to keep their ears and eyes open for potential copper thieves and others causing malicious network damage.
These thefts are common with earthing systems for ABIs, transformers, pole mounted transformers, cable terminations on poles and other similar equipment. Please help us save lives and keep the power on for our community.
