Working near a substation
Storage of spoil or excavated materials, cable drums, containers, etc. near the fence could allow easy access for children, vandals or thieves and should be avoided. Tools and equipment that could be used to breech the substation security measures should be locked away or made inoperable and there is a legal requirement to ensure that the public is not affected by your works. As a guide, we would not expect materials to be stored within 2 meters of the fence.
Working inside a substation
To help us to get you the right level of support, you’ll need to tell us:
- What site you need access to;
- The type of work you need to carry out (scaffolding, wall repairs);
- How long you need access for.
We can then work with you to develop a plan and help your teams stay safe
