EnergySafety today issued a media release on additional safety precautions for the type of high voltage (HV) switches involved in the 3 February Morley Galleria Shopping Centre explosion.
The first Order pertained to only Long & Crawford Manchester Switchgear. EnergySafety has now extended the Order to all HV oil-insulated combined-fuse switches.
In addition to banning the opening of the lid, the second Order bans the commencement of any electrical work on this type of equipment, including operation of the switching or earthing mechanisms if a HV fuse has operated.
