Safety first when installing solar systems

11 Sep 2018


A new guide – Workplace Health & Safety when installing solar systems – outlines the risks and controls that businesses and installers face when working on solar photovoltaic (PV) installations.

The demand for solar photovoltaic installations in Australia, both domestic and commercial is growing rapidly.

That’s great news for businesses and installers, but the high levels of demand can also put a strain on workers who face hectic schedules and pressure on install times. At the same time inexperienced workers are entering the industry to meet the demand.

It’s essential that you take these pressures into consideration and always put you and your team’s health and safety first.

This document was produced by the Clean Energy Regulator with the support of NECA, the Clean Energy Council, the Smart Energy Council, Energy Safe Victoria, Queensland's Electrical Safety Office and Master Electricians Australia.
