Disaster Recovery

NECA has developed a comprehensive guide that provides guidance to NECA Members when assisting flood-affected businesses and households across Queensland and Northern NSW to keep safe from electrical risks. 

The NECA Member Electrical Contractor Flood Disaster Recovery Guide contains life-saving electrical safety information with specific protocols for those affected before, during and after flooding events. The guide includes critical information such as evacuation checklists, managing ongoing risks and correct procedures in the flood’s aftermath.

  • Testing forms including: 
    • Certificate of periodic verification as inspected under AS/NZS 3019:2007
    • Electrical Installation Testing Record Sheet 
    • Safe Work Method Statement for Verification Testing SWMS 
    • Safe Work Method Statement for Ladder SWMS 
  • What employers need to consider – your legal obligations for: 
    • Site shutdowns and stand down;  
    • Sending employees home and inclement weather. 
    • Employee access to the site due to inclement weather 
    • Other considerations for employers
