SWMS Electrical Fit Off

Electrical Fit Off SWMS

The electrical earthing method statement is an assessment of risk following the identification of hazards connected with the work task of electrical earthing and the subsequent implementation of controls to manage the risks.​

  • SWMS safe work method statement requires hazard control measures to be implemented per electrical safety procedures when undertaking the earthing of electrical equipment.

Electrical Fit-Out Safe Work Method Statement

Workplace Health and Safety has conducted a comprehensive job hazard analysis for electrical installation, namely the methods used to fit off electrical installations per electrical safe work practices and have developed risk control measures per the risk controls hierarchy.

  • Assess and review health and safety practices in the workplace to control risk

  • WHS consultation for the identification of hazards with the fit off of electrical installation equipment

  • Risk assessment to identify hazards in the workplace that may potentially pose an immediate threat of death or serious injury

  • Health and safety planning for undertaking the electrical fit-out of electrical installations and equipment, e.g. minimise risks through the planning process

  • WHS consultation and participation processes ensure adequate health and safety communication

  • Environmental workplace hazards, e.g. work in a confined space, falling from heights

  • Workplace trip hazards likely to result in slips trips and falls injuries

  • Implementation of controls for the fit off of electrical fittings, e.g. isolation of hazards and services for electrical installations in hazardous areas

  • Health and safety at work information for the control of risks

  • Tools and equipment used in the electrical fit-out of an electrical fitting

  • Method of identifying electrical fittings per electrical installation guidelines, specifications and drawings

  • Hazard controls for drilling materials to fit off electrical fittings, masonry materials may result in silica dust exposure

  • Electrical fit off of electrical installations and equipment using insulated tools and electrical testing tools

  • Working at heights on electrical ladders, mobile scaffolding and elevated working platforms in the fit off of electrical equipment

  • Hazardous chemicals, e.g. chemical anchors, used to support electrical fittings

  • Hazardous manual handling in connection with the electrical fit-out of electrical installations and equipment

  • Personal protective equipment, e.g. safety equipment for height work, safety equipment for electricians and respiratory PPE

  • Work health and safety training for workers, e.g. electrical safe work practices training

  • Housekeeping at workplace incorporating material handling and storage system

  • Legislative requirements in a workplace for complying with WHS legislation, e.g. code of practice for safe electrical work and health and safety standards

  • Monitoring controls, e.g. implement and monitor work health and safety practices

  • Electrician tasks and activities in connection with electrical fit-out works

SWMS Electrical Installation

Safe work procedure for the electrical fit-out of electrical installations and equipment shall assess the risk of construction high-risk activities involved in the fit off of electrical equipment.

High-risk activities in construction that may expose workers to whs hazards and risks are likely to include but not be limited to:

  • Working on or near live electrical equipment, e.g. hazards of electricity

  • Implementing an isolation procedure for electrical equipment to ensure safety with electrical equipment

  • Lockout electrical equipment for electrical fit-out works

  • Testing electrical equipment per safe work procedure for electrical work

  • Use of electrical tools and equipment, e.g. insulated tools

  • Work at heights

  • Other electrical fit-out hazards
