Electrical Safety Testing and Tagging
WorkSafe Victoria, says your employees could be using portable equipment and electrical safety leads that are electrically faulty or damaged. The risk is that they may suffer electrical shock, which could result in a workplace accident that could potentially cause death.
The risk is that they may suffer electrical shock, which could result in a workplace accident that could potentially cause death.
Quite simply you are required to maintain a safe workplace environment by identifying any risks and eliminating them as much as possible by performing electrical testing regularly.
When it comes to electrical safety gear in your office the best precaution you can take is to have it tested by a competent person who is qualified to inspect, test and assess your equipment to ensure its safety.
Being able to demonstrate your "Duty of Care" in this area is achieved by your ability to show a history of regular testing of your portable electrical appliance testing, leads and power boards.
Test and Tag Compliance Services provide total management of your test and tag requirements including:
- Identifying, testing and tagging of all electrical gear in your office.
- Provision of all documentation required by law.
- Follow up testing and tagging as required by the Australian Standard to maintain compliance.
- Provision of a historical report as time progresses, to demonstrate your "Duty of Care".
You may have seen that commercial for WorkSafe on television revealing that a WorkSafe inspector knocks on an employer's door every 12 minutes. What happens if your door is next? How would you measure up?
