Has anyone done much work around EV maintenance safety, in particular heavy vehicles?
Take a look at AS 5732:2015. Electric Vehicle Operations Maintenance and Repair, are you are looking at electric truck/bus maintenance? I spent a number of years servicing and maintaining battery electric forklifts/etc these typically operate at much lower voltages than EVs (24V, -72V versus 600v or more for EVs)
Take a look at this site for some available tools for use on that range of voltage
Worksafe have produced some guidelines for EV charging which might be of interest too
