Electricians use their technical expertise to keep our homes, businesses and industry powered. In NSW, there are over 70,000 licensed electricians working to bring safe and reliable electricity to our lives.

We are reviewing how apprentice electricians and unlicensed electrical workers are being supervised at work.

We want to hear from anyone working in the electrical and building trades and their clients. Your responses will help us understand current supervision practices and how they can be improved.

We will use your comments to inform possible best-practice supervision options for apprentice electricians and unlicensed electrical workers in our state.
