Transporting High Loads - Guide (Draft)

This Guide provides information on the responsibilities of transport operators, their workers and others when transporting high loads. Contact with energised overhead electric lines by high loads can cause death, electric shock or other injury to anyone involved in these activities.
Apart from electrical risks, there may be other obstacles or risks associated with this work, for example clearance from trees and traffic lights that are not covered. This Guide also does not cover permits and other requirements for the transport of over dimension loads from other authorities like a local council, rail or transport authorities.
