Part 40 Utility Workers – Electrical

Explanation of Rules Referenced from the ECUC, Second Edition

Rule 4-30 Duties

These duties are already recognized in a general sense in subsection 2(2) of the OHS Act and section 14 of the OHS Regulation. Regarding paragraph 4-030(e), the ECUC has historically been concerned with the safety of both workers and the public. Since the OHS Act concerns itself with the safety of workers and not members of the public, the reference to “persons” in this paragraph is meant to refer to workers only.
