EWRB v Aaron Collings

Mr Collings was fined $3,000 and ordered to pay costs in the District Court in Hamilton on a charge of carrying out prescribed electrical work when not authorised. In October 2017, Mr Collings installed a number of indoor and outdoor lights at commercial premises in Hamilton. At the time, he held a trainee limited certificate which allowed him to carry out some prescribed electrical work while supervised. At the time of the offending, he was not working under supervision. The work that was carried out was faulty and electrically unsafe.
