At Wellington Electricity we take the safety of our customers, employees, contractors and the wider community very seriously. Simple precautions taken within the home or near our distribution network can greatly reduce the likelihood of an accident involving electricity. Download our booklet below which provides a guide to safe working practices when working near our electricity network and provides information about the services we have to help you.

Wellington Electricity also has an interactive website called Electrical Safety World, where your children can play games and learn about electricity. The site includes information and checklists for you to help them learn about electricity in and around the home. Visit Electrical Safety World.
