It’s important to be wary of maintaining electrical risk assessment regardless of the type of workplace you have, so that your business is compliant and safe. The Model Work Health and Safety Act forms the basis of the WHS Act being enacted across Australia (excluding VIC and WA), coordinating ordinances of work health and safety law. Most of Australia follows the ordinances set in place by the WHS and OHS (VIC/WA), adhering to their rules and regulations.
Standards for Electrical Risk Assessment
According to Safe Work Australia, some of the primary risks associated with electrical equipment are:
• Contact with exposed live parts or circuitry. These materials cause electric shock and burns.
• Faulty lines which can cause fires that spread quickly through the wiring.
• Fire or explosion where electricity could be the source of ignition in a potentially flammable or explosive atmosphere.
If you’re unsure about your responsibilities to adhere to work safety regulations, or whether your workplace or business qualifies, it’s important to take steps to classify your working arrangements. This is why it’s of the utmost importance to hire an electrical risk assessment service provider who can offer you the knowledge, insurance, and licenses necessary to properly assess your workplace.
