A digital electrical inspection checklist is an essential tool to determine if your workers and worksite adhere to electrical compliance safety rules. Electrical equipment should undergo quality and safety checks before operating. Inadequate checks and poor training can lead to electric shock and death.

An electrical safety checklist is often accompanied by a site-walkthrough to identify and report on common electrical hazards. The report then provides an overall electrical safety assessment of the worksite, training and equipment being used and general recommendations on what to improve.

A mobile inspection app such as iAuditor can digitize your electrical safety forms and enable you to conduct inspections faster on your hand-held device, generate reports instantly and save all data securely online. Preview a sample electrical safety report generated using the iAuditor mobile app.

We have created 5 electrical safety checklists you can download and customize for free and conduct paperless mobile inspections using the iAuditor mobile app.

5 Featured Electrical Safety Checklists

1. Electrical Safety Inspection Checklist

Use this template to assess the compliance of electrical safety measures for a given worksite. Do a site walkthrough and inspect the electrical tools and equipment being used (e.g switches, power lines, appliances, installations, wiring, cables and cords). Evaluate if the workers are knowledgeable on electrical safety measures and are aware of their responsibility to report any hazards. Check that lock out tag out procedures are being followed by workers before performing any electrical maintenance and installation work. Provide an overall safety assessment of the workplace in managing electrical hazards.

2. Electrical Hazard Checklist

Use this checklist before you commence work each day to check for hazards that could cause an electrocution. Initially check if general electrical safety measures are followed. Next inspect if power tools, extension and flexible cords are safely utilized. Evaluate if grounding procedures are applied to all equipment and tools. Lastly, determine if employees comply with the safety regulations when working around power lines (if applicable). Provide an overall hazard rating and recommendations to improve safety.

3. Lock Out Tag Out (LOTO) Checklist

LOTO procedures are critical when performing maintenance and repairs on electrical equipment to protect repairers and nearby workers. Use this LOTO checklist before servicing industrial equipment. Check the quality and efficiency of LOTO devices being used and rate the overall LOTO process. Browse here for more LOTO checklists.

4. Accident Report Form

An accident report helps to track improvement on electrical safety. Use this template to document accidents caused by faulty electrical wires and short circuits or any electrical hazards detected. Record information of the injured person, injury details and the contributing factors to the accident. You may also document emergency services involved, hospitalization information and witness statements. Use iAuditor to collate accident records for safety purposes.
