3. Electrical Safety

Ensure that all electrical equipment you use is in good order. Do not use any electrical equipment that does not appear to be in good order but report it to your supervisor without delay.

Changes to the electrical system (including new plugs) should only be undertaken by competent persons who have been trained and all works required should be reported to the safety officer.

Work on 3 phase electrical systems or live plant must never be undertaken by unqualified personnel and live working requires a specific risk assessment to be undertaken.
