Event Notification Criteria 

The Gas Act; Electricity Act; and the Health and Safety at Work Act, each contain requirements to report certain accidents and incidents. 

A notifiable electrical or gas accident is one involving gas or electricity that results in serious injury or death and/or significant damage to property. Notifiable electrical and gas accidents are defined in section 16 of the Electricity Act and section 17 of the Gas Act. The Health and Safety at Work Act requires the notification of a death, a notifiable injury or illness (section 23), or a notifiable incident (section 24) occurring in the workplace.  

Workplace Accident 

If an electricity or gas accident in a workplace results in serious harm to any person (including a member of the public), or significant property damage, then WorkSafe New Zealand should be contacted as soon as possible at 0800 030 040 or through our Notify WorkSafe web page. 

Non-Workplace Accident 

Submitting this form will enter the data into Energy Safety’s case management system. If the accident has resulted a death, an Energy Safety Technical Officer on call will contact you shortly for more information. Other notifications will be responded to during business hours.
