Electrical Safety Checklists

Working with electricity poses numerous hazards that may lead to serious harms and injuries. Workers who perform work on or near energised equipment, including electrical installation and use of or maintenance of electrical equipment need to be aware of associated hazards. Regular site walkthroughs and hazard identification can help determine if workers adhere to electrical compliance safety rules. Electrical equipment should undergo quality and safety checks before operating. In addition, lock out tag out procedures should be performed before any service maintenance and installation work.
