Do you test and tag appliances in the office regularly? How can you tell if your employees are satisfied with your workplace? These are just some of the common questions you should take into consideration when running a workplace.
Establishing a safety culture in the workplace is crucial for promoting a secure and healthy environment for employees. What is meant by safety culture in the workplace? A strong safety culture is built upon effective communication, continuous training, and proactive hazard identification and mitigation. It involves fostering an organisational mindset that values and prioritises safety at all levels including electrical safety.

Employee Engagement and Empowerment
Testing and tagging appliances involve employee engagement and participation in maintaining a safe working environment. Encouraging employees to report any concerns or issues they notice with appliances fosters a sense of ownership and empowerment.
When employees feel that their input is valued and acted upon, they become more invested in their work and the overall success of the organisation. Additionally, involving employees in safety initiatives, such as training programs or equipment inspections, enhances their understanding and awareness of safety practices, further reinforcing a culture of responsibility and accountability.
Prior to use, employees or delegates must arrange for the electrical items to be tested and tagged. The results of the test should be recorded as the basis for future testing.
