Please do not risk your safety by working near electricity without taking safety advice first. We offer free advice and a site visit from an expert when you need to work near a power line to make sure you’re working safely. Read more about our safety advice. For more information on working near overhead power lines please read the GS6 guide on the HSE website.
We will first call you to offer safety advice and then if needed one of our experts can come to visit you to give you advice and recommendations about how to work safely. We may need to visit a second time but this will depend on your situation and the work involved.
We'll always aim to book you in for the next available appointment that is convenient for you.
You can request this service by registering or logging in to our self service portal which also allows you to submit multiple applications and track the progress of any existing applications. All incomplete application forms will automatically save to your dashboard, so you can always come back to them later.
Complete our online application form and our team will contact you to schedule in a suitable time for one of our engineers to visit you.
