Live LV Electrical Work (Guide)


Note: File may be downloaded after completion of your purchase
As a result of changes in the SM-EI 2015, the EEA Safety Standards and Procedures Group (SSPG) has completed a brief review of the Guide to Live Low Voltage (LV) Electrical Work.
The principle amendments to the Guide have arisen from new or amended provisions in SM-EI 2015, particularly to rule 3.717. Rule 3.717, now includes a requirement for a minor works management system whenever live LV work is performed.
Other specific amendments include:

  • Inclusion of WorkSafe advice that AS/NZS 4836 does not apply to works via Electricity (Safety) Regulation 100
  • Revised definition for 'secondary point of contact'
  • Work planning and control section revised to be consistent with SM-EI and new workplace legislation
  • Section 6 now requires that when joining cables the neutral/earth must be the first cable connected.
SSPG has significant ongoing live work guide development and review programme in 2017/18 so feedback on this Guide would be welcome and should be sent to

The Guide will again be reviewed as part of a review of all work on LV, both live and deenergised, and the preparation of additional guidance on such work. This work is scheduled for the second half of 2017.
