Electrical Safety


Ametalin stresses the importance of safe installation practices for insulation as critical to installer and consumer safety.

Risk assessment and hazard control measures contained in federal, state and territory WHS legislation must be followed.

Cutting should not be performed with membrane in place if electrical cables or equipment are in the vicinity. All equipment used for installing this insulation should be designed to minimise the risk of electrical shock.

The Aluminium Foil Insulation Association Inc. (AFIA) has prepared Work Methods Statement and Hazard Management forms to assist contractors and installers in safe installation of insulation products, these are available on 2009 AFIA WMS & Hazard Management,
