What is the Electricity and Gas High-risk Database?

The Electricity and Gas High-risk Database holds records of gas and electrical work that has been classified as high-risk. This database was created on 1 July 2013 and is administered by Energy Safety, a division of WorkSafe.

The database provides public access to key mandatory information about high-risk prescribed electrical work including the location of the work, who certified it and who inspected it. It also assists regulators to focus resources on the areas that have the potential for the greatest improvement in safety outcomes and with Energy Safety’s auditing of completed work and the monitoring of electrical workers’ professional competency and safety.

Essential information for all electrical installers, inspectors and consumers on how to use, access and search the data base is available from this new EWRB Toolbox topic.
