How many things could you complete over the course of your day without the need for electricity? We expect that the answer to this is very few. Without electricity, the business world would not move at such a hectic pace, and our home lives would be incredibly limited in terms of our ability to do basic things such as cooking, cleaning and even comfortably relaxing. The truth is that electricity is something we cannot do without, but there is always an underlying risk attached to engaging with it, given its power to harm and destroy.

According to Safe Work Australia, these are some of the most common risks associated with electricity when there is a lack of proper testing, and they are as follows:
• Electric shock causing injury or death.
• Arcing, explosion or fire causing burns. The injuries are often suffered because arcing or explosion or both occur when high fault currents are present
• Electric shock from ‘step-and-touch’ potentials
• Toxic gases causing illness or death. Burning and arcing associated with electrical equipment may release various gases and contaminants
• fire resulting from an electrical fault.
The most effective way to prevent injury and death, and ensure a safe environment is through proper testing and tagging with a reliable service provider. Testing and tagging your appliances will not only protect the welfare and safety of those around you, but also from any safety threats that accompany failing to comply with the test and tag guidelines of WHS (Brisbane).
