What does a Melbourne Electrical Spotter do?

STA Traffic Management solutions offer qualified and professional electrical spotting services for a wide range of projects in Melbourne and surrounding areas, but what exactly does an electrical spotter do?

Electrical spotting is an essential part of any construction and road work job and was introduced in 2015 by the Victorian Government in response to the rise in electrical accidents occurring on construction sites.

In order to practice electrical spotting, an individual must obtain accreditation. Once qualified, there is to identify the distances between overhead powerlines, with the primary goal to minimise electrocution and risk of injury, protect workers, avoid contact with pipelines and monitor the weather and worksite environment.
