Safety Alert – Importance of Providing Clearances between Assets:

A sub-contractor worker engaged by contractor organisation Linbeck, was working on the Jemena Gas Network in the NSW, Central Coast. The worker was conducting a hand excavation to expose underground electrical and gas services.

The electrical & gas service was covered by electrical cable warning matting. To complete the work the contractor used a hand saw to cut the cable mat. While the worker cut the material the saw blade made contact with the electrical cable directly below the mat, resulting in the worker sustaining an Electrical shock.
