    Many of our electrical practitioners may already be familiar with AS4836 "Safe working on or near low-voltage electrical installations and equipment". There is an increasing focus industry-wide on electrical safety and arc flash mitigation strategies, which are particularly important for electrical thermography where in the majority of cases switchboards must be inspected 'live' and with covers removed.

    Accordingly we would encourage all members operating in the electrical space to familiarise themselves with AS4836 in it's current form, and also review the draft Standard and/or submit any comments to Standards Australia as applicable. The draft standard and a link to the Standards Australia portal is available here via NECA.

    The first event will be the annual general meeting and conference, to be held on Friday 25th March 2022 at Graduate House in Melbourne, Victoria.

    As many members would be aware, evidence of continuing professional development (CPD) is required for renewal of your AUSPTA membership every year. However, we wish to acknowledge the difficulty in attaining the necessary CPD points while in-person events have been postponed or cancelled during the COVID-19 pandemic. Accordingly the AUSPTA Executive and Committee has made a decision to waive CPD requirements for the 2021 calendar year.

    If you have any further queries please get in touch.
