Close Approach Permits
You must obtain a Close Approach Permit from Unison before working within four metres of our power lines, poles or power boxes, to carry out tasks such as tree trimming or earth works.
If you need to work within four metres of our electrical equipment, we’ll require you to apply for a Close Approach Permit. This ensures we are aware of the work you will be carrying out, so can arrange the necessary precautions that will allow you to carry out your work safely.
Failing to get a permit when working within four metres of our network could result in serious injury or fatal electrocution.
