UPDATE 4.30PM: POST A PRIVATE POLES.

Paul Lister - Wednesday, July 04, 2018

Following urgent discussions with Ausgrid management this afternoon the ETU has agreed that work on Post A private poles can only proceed where an elevated work platform (EWP) is used. In circumstances where an EWP is used to perform work on Post A private poles all Ausgrid procedures relating to work on Post A private poles should be followed.

THE BAN ON CLIMBING POST A PRIVATE POLES REMAINS IN PLACE AND NO ETU MEMBERS SHOULD CLIMB POST A PRIVATE POLES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

If any members have doubts, questions or concerns relating to the use of EWP’s for Post A private pole work or the climbing ban you should immediately contact your workplace delegate or ETU organiser Anthony O’Sullivan (0429 429 234).

In unity,
Anthony O’Sullivan
ETU Organiser
