There are currently no vision standards for electricians in Australia however individual employers may have their own requirements and often require normal colour vision. It is recommended that prospective electricians be advised of this potential difficulty as early as possible if they are colour vision deficient.
Rail Safety Workers (e.g. train and tram drivers)
