According to Worksafe Victoria, a spotter is:

‘A competent person who undertakes the task of observing and warning against unsafe approach to overhead and underground assets. A spotter for overhead electrical cables shall have successfully completed an endorsed training course.’

A spotter’s overall job is to observe the safe operation of all mobile plant equipment, when they are in use near service assets.

A spotter must be on site at all times to ensure regular health and safety checks are made as well as safe operation of all equipment.

When a spotter is required on site, the contractor on duty must ensure that the spotter is inducted into all site safety procedures according to the Safe work method statement.

What does a spotter course provide you?

A spotter must be on site at all times that earth moving equipment is under operation. A spotter must monitor one machinery operation task at a time.

The spotter must also correctly position themselves to accurately monitor the position and distance between the equipment and the electrical lines to guide and instruct where danger may arise.

A spotter course provides the following training for all students:

  • Knowledge of design envelopes for all equipment being used
  • Knowledge of the operation of the equipment being used
  • Knowledge of the potential hazards and dangers that can arise from overhead electrical assets

In addition to the skills and training provided through the spotters short course, there are a series of legislative requirements that students must attain before applying for a spotters short course.
