Look-up + Live is an initiative conceived by two accredited Safety Spotter services in Victoria concerned by the apparent limited knowledge of regulations & best practices when working around electrical hazards in the open on worksites around the state. It's not intended to replace guidelines & directives from official regulators & authorities, rather it's an additional information channel and means of communication & discuss those.
I will repeat the disclaimer that appears on the Home page:
It is NOT intended as legal and/ or professional advice and no liability is accepted for any consequences attributed to content on this site, nor any & all third party links. We do not guarantee that all information is up to date. You should ALWAYS seek further independent advice.
Anyone with an interest in Occupational Health and Safety around power-lines is welcome to register and and participate in the forum. That includes spotters, regulators, OH&S managers and their clients/ potential clients.
Don't be afraid to ask questions or participate if you have something to contribute by way of your own experiences, anecdotes or knowledge. Ask questions if you have doubts or questions. Hopefully someone can provide the answer(s) or point you in the right direction.
We don't intend to be overly authoritarian in moderating these forums but the normal rules of good behaviour & social etiquette will be applied. The usual rules apply to spam, abuse, bullying, harassment and discussion of any non-relevant and/or controversial topics including (but not restricted to) politics & religion. All that is banned and may result in a personal ban for severe or repeat offences. Please go somewhere else on the internet for that.
If you have something to sell or services to provide we have a section for that on this forum. If you wish to come on board as a sponsor or more actively involved perhaps as resident expert or moderator, please contact us by PM.
