Safety Spotter

What's our clearance from that conductor? We can probably tell you within about 100mm.

SafetySpotter is the only accredited electrical safety spotter service in Victoria that uses the TruPulse 360º professional laser rangefinder to take the guesswork out of your next project. By using this handy device and focusing on any 2 points (in any direction), we can give you up to 5 measurements:
· horizontal distance
· vertical distance
· sloping distance
· inclination
· azimuth

The first 2 readings are the most critical when you need to work around power-lines

Some important change for all Victorian employers took effect this month. Importantly their OH&S obligations now come with significantly tougher new penalties - should negligence lead to a worker dying on the job. WorkSafe Victoria have also scaled up with 11 new staff: 8 experienced investigators & 3 newly graduated investigators who have transferred after years of experience with Victoria Police.

A conviction could involve manslaughter charges, with up to 25 years in prison for individuals or $16M in fines for corporations. 😮

We're committed to helping your crew work safely around (overhead & underground) electrical hazards and remain compliant.

We can spot for overhead electrical hazards anywhere in the State of #Victoria. This one is for #newinfrastructure #watermains on the urban fringe.

NB. You can't see the overhead lines in this photo (thanks to Rod) but maybe that's why we're there? 🤔

Students at Box Hill High School are in for a treat with their staged return to on-site schooling with this newly covered sports court completed by the shade-sail specialists Greenline Group.

It's not always "plain sailing" though. With HV lines not far away on the Middleborough Road side, it's important to tick all the boxes:
✅ Permit arranged
✅ Spotter in place
✅ Safe work methods

Thanks to John for the photos (Y)

A serious workplace incident yesterday when an excavator hit an underground electrical main: two injuries including one in a critical condition by the time paramedics arrived. 😥

Underground assets can be especially hazardous. The first step to minimise the risk is to call Dial Before You Dig Vic/Tas. The safest way to expose the conductors is usually by hydro-excavation and always use an approved spotter when carrying out works around them.

It's not yet known what went wrong here, but our spotters are trained in dealing with underground as well as overhead hazards. We wish both workers a speedy recovery.
