Electrical Safety Plan

Electrical Health and Safety Plan

The electrical safety plan assesses the risk following the hazard identification process connected with electrical installation work task and the subsequent implementation of risk controls to manage the risks.

  • Electrical safe work method statements require that hazard control measures be implemented per electrical safety procedures when undertaking electrical installation work.

Electrical Safety Work Practices Plan

Workplace Health and Safety has conducted a hazard analysis of electrical work practices for construction work, e.g. cable tray installation work and developed risk control measures per the hierarchy of controls for identified hazards.

  • Assess and review WHS practices in the workplace to control risk

  • Consultation with employees on health and safety matters for the identification of hazards with electrical work practices

  • Risk assessment to identify workplace safety hazards and risks that may potentially pose an immediate threat of death or serious injury

  • Health and safety planning for electrical safety work practices, e.g. minimise risks through the planning process

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

  • Workplace environmental hazards, e.g. working in hazardous areas, electrical hazard, work in a confined space, falling from heights

  • Slip trips and falls in the workplace having the potential to cause death or serious injury

  • Toolbox talks before commencing electrical work tasks to identify hazards with the undertaking of electrical work to implement control measures to prevent the risk of injury

  • Hazards associated with working in confined spaces for electrical work shall have control measures implemented to eliminate, minimise or isolate the risk

  • Work at height hazards for electrical work shall have control measures implemented per work at height hierarchy of control to eliminate, minimise or isolate the risk

  • Hazardous chemicals used in connection with electrical work tasks

  • Hazardous manual tasks in connection with undertaking electrical work tasks

  • Personal protective equipment, e.g. electrical safety gear, PPE for electricians and electrical PPE

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

  • Workplace housekeeping incorporating material handling and storage safety

  • Legislative and regulatory requirements for compliance with WHS legislation, e.g. managing electrical risks in the workplace code of practice and WHS industry standards

  • Monitor and review of risk controls, e.g. implement and monitor work health and safety practices

  • Electrician tasks and activities in connection with electrical work tasks

Safety Plan for Electrical Work

Electrical safety plan shall assess the risk of construction high-risk activities involved with electrical work practices.

High-risk work activities that may expose workers to WHS hazards are likely to include but not be limited to:

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

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

  • Lockout electrical equipment per live electrical work requirements

  • Work on live electrical, e.g. working with live electrical wires

  • Use of electrical testing tools, e.g. live electrical testing

  • Other electrical work hazards.
