Unterminated cables can cause electric shock

21Aug
Cables - High voltage installations Port Moresby, PNG

Live unterminated cables are a serious risk to everyone, not just electrical workers. These cables are often the result of someone failing to ensure all electrical equipment in an installation has been connected. Live unterminated cables can often remain undetected as the usual electrical tests may not always identify them. This is why your visual inspection is essential, and why the Wiring Rules requires it to be performed before conducting further tests.

The Importance of having an Electrical Engineer on a Construction Site

09Aug

When you think of a construction site you most likely go straight to the picture of tradies working primarily on building and concreting. But there is a key role that needs to be on a construction site at all times to prevent a lot of potential emergencies and accidents. And that’s an electrical engineer. 

An electrical engineer is responsible for ensuring that all configuration and installation  of electrical systems are compliant with all safety regulations. At PME PNG we ensure that all of our work sites have an electrical engineer on site at all times. We also work with only the best electrical engineers, so that you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Safety Tips for Summer Construction

Working in construction has some great perks – one of which is being able to get out of an office and work in the sunshine. But in the hotter months of the year this stops being a perk and can actually become very dangerous.

Working for long hours in extreme heat and direct sun can escalate the dangers of construction and put your team at risk of a number of health issues such as sunburn, dehydration and heatstroke.

So we’ve put together a few easy to follow tips to ensure your workers’ safety is always your main priority and you can avoid any unnecessary negative effects on your your workers’ health.

Construction Worker Fatigue

01Nov

Fighting and Preventing Construction Worker Fatigue

Worker fatigue on a construction site can not only slow down production and lead to silly mistakes, but in this industry, it can be fatal. Construction sites are full of hazards already, so the risk of accidents and injuries is largely increased when fatigue is added into mix.

Fatigue can be mental or physical or even both, and can be caused by a great number of factors including extended hours, increased workload, personal issues or illness. So making sure you know what’s happening with your workers on site and even in their home lives is crucial.
