Keeping you safe

Electric and magnetic fields occur wherever electricity is used, distributed, transmitted and generated. They occur in natural and human-made electricity. Their effect on health has been researched since the 1950s, and in recent years by national and international committees.

While the general conclusions haven't established a relationship between magnetic fields and adverse health effects, we:

  • operate our transmission system prudently, with Australian health guidelines front of mind
  • closely monitor high quality scientific research
  • seek community views when locating new facilities.

In addition, we follow recommendations from Energy Networks Australia, the peak industry association for energy networks.
