Using Electrical Equipment At Work

Electricity is dangerous and can kill – so don’t meddle with it.

Only licensed electricians are authorised to work on electrical equipment.  No other employee is authorised to carry out electrical repairs.

When working with electrical equipment:

  • Always assume that all electrical leads are live.

  • Inspect electrical tools and equipment before use.

  • Report any frayed wires, damaged cables or faulty switches to your supervisor.

  • When using an extension lead across a traffic area protect it from damage by placing boards on either side of the lead.

  • Do not allow electric leads to lie in wet areas.

  • Do not operate or use any electrical equipment which has a Danger or Out of Service tag attached.

  • If you receive a shock, even a small one, you must report it to your supervisor immediately.
