and Tag in Australia:
Does your workplace comply?
Whether you run a workshop, a retail
store, a kitchen or a construction site, electrical safety
is paramount. All levels of management are legally responsible
for workplace safety, and a documented risk assessment approach
is required. Test
and tag is a strategy which minimises the risk of electrical
shock to workers. Each piece of equipment is inspected, electrically
tested, and then tagged (labelled) at regular intervals. A
record of these tests is kept as part of your overall amp;S
risk management documentation.
It is especially important for employers
to pay attention to the risks where the workplace presents
an environment which is hostile to electrical equipment. Hostile
work environments may, for example, expose electrical equipment
to damage from moisture, heat, vibration, corrosive chemicals,
dust, or physical use or abuse.
