An interesting safety talk was also presented by Bernd Vetter from South East Water in Victoria. He showed us a safety testing unit that all the site workers must have a look at. It indicated if the plumbing is alive electrically and can save workers from electrocution. See manufacturers website        http://glmcgavin.com.au/products/mini-water-pipe-tester-wpt.html
