3 © 2006 E.ON25 August 2014, Central Networks, Page 3 Overview of G55/2 The purpose of G55/2 is to provide a common basis for safe working practices for DNO tree contract work in Proximity to any Distribution Network Operator’s equipment. The tree and vegetation industry has undertaken a big step change in their safety culture since the publication of G55/1. G55/2 now reflects this change

4 © 2006 E.ON25 August 2014, Central Networks, Page 4 The main difference between G55/1 and G55/2 involves the categories of tree work and the procedures to control risk, and it now addresses DNO work specifically Previously, there were three categories. There are now four categories: A, B, C and D, which allow arborists to work up to the safety distances

5 © 2006 E.ON25 August 2014, Central Networks, Page 5 DNO’s perspective Safety –  We are now asking arborists to work closer to our network than ever before.  All arborists are being retrained to the new NPTC standards and procedures.  Central Networks has in certain areas decided to apply more stringent methods of work than those recommended by G55/2.  These are being briefed out by Central Networks.

Helps to speed up compliance with legislation (ESQCR) Reduce customer inquires and complaints Financial benefits –  Reduced network interruptions  Able to cut more live spans  Reduced number of tree related incidents  Less CI and CMLs incurred Safer and more reliable network for our customers

7 © 2006 E.ON25 August 2014, Central Networks, Page 7 Summary  There are concerns regarding safety- working closer to the network  These are been managed by risk assessment, training, auditing and where necessary DNO’s restrictions  There are compliance with legislation benefits which in turn brings customer satisfaction  There are financial savings which ultimately benefit the DNO, customers and stakeholders
