Electrical equipment is used across many different industries and occupations. It is tremendously useful, but it can also be very hazardous to operators and other people within the vicinity if it is not carefully controlled and managed.

By managing electrical equipment safety, workplace injuries such as electrical shocks and burns can be significantly reduced.

All persons conducting a business or undertaking have duties to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that electrical equipment and installations at the workplace are without risks to the health and safety of persons. Management, staff and contractors also have a statutory and regulatory obligation to comply with the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 and Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011.

This procedure gives businesses the information and guidance they need to implement a procedure that effectively increases electrical equipment safety.

The procedure covers a range of areas, including:

  • power tools and extension leads
  • residual current devices
  • electrical sockets
  • reporting of incidents
  • ladder safety
  • lifting equipment, and
  • general procedures.

The Electrical Equipment Procedure works in conjunction with the following forms:

  • 523 – OHS Meeting Form
  • 520 – Risk Assessment Form
