Test and Tag Kalkallo – Is Your Workplace Electrically Safe?

Testing and tagging electrical equipment is a crucial step to maintaining safety in the workplace throughout Melbourne. This process involves electrically assessing portable equipment to make sure they are safe for use, and then tagging them correctly with their current status.

Damaged equipment will be tagged as needing repair or “not safe for use” while equipment that are functioning well are tagged as “safe for use”. These tags will be used as your visual guides to know which equipment are most likely going to cause hazard if you continue using them.

The Local Guys – Test and Tag Kalkallo is dedicated in helping you maintain an electrically safe workplace. Our goal is to test and tag electrical equipment and provide you with guidance on how to make the workplace electrically safe.

Tips To Make Your Workplace Electrically Safe With Test and Tag Kalkallo

Conduct Regular Inspections

Regular inspections of electrical equipment, wiring, and outlets are crucial to identify potential hazards. The Australian Standard AS/NZ 3760:2022 mandates any “competent person” to inspect the workplace periodically to check for any signs of wear and tear, loose connections, or faulty components. Prompt repairs or replacements should be carried out to address any identified issues.

Maintain Proper Wiring

Ensure that the workplace has adequate and properly installed wiring. Avoid using extension cords as a permanent solution, as they can pose fire hazards and increase the risk of tripping. Install additional outlets where needed and ensure that wiring is organised and protected to prevent accidental damage.

Label Circuit Breakers and Electrical Panels

Properly labeling circuit breakers and electrical panels helps in quickly identifying the source of power to specific equipment or areas. This labeling should be clear, accurate, and regularly updated to reflect any changes in the electrical system.

Educate Employees

Conduct regular training sessions to educate employees about electrical safety practices. This should include guidelines on how to operate electrical equipment safely, how to identify potential electrical hazards, and what actions to take in case of an emergency. Employees should also be trained on how to use electrical tools and equipment correctly.

Implement Lockout/Tagout Procedures

Lockout/Tagout procedures are essential when servicing or repairing electrical equipment. These procedures involve de-energising and locking out equipment to prevent accidental re-energisation during maintenance or repairs. Proper training should be provided to employees on lockout/tagout procedures, and the necessary equipment (locks, tags) should be readily available.

Provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Depending on the nature of the work, employees may require personal protective equipment such as insulated gloves, safety goggles, or protective clothing. Assess the hazards present in the workplace and provide the necessary PPE to protect employees from electrical shocks, burns, or other potential injuries.

Establish Electrical Safety Policies

Develop and implement comprehensive electrical safety policies and procedures. These policies should cover guidelines for the use of electrical equipment, reporting of electrical hazards, and emergency response protocols. Ensure that all employees are aware of these policies and adhere to them.

Regularly Test Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs)

GFCIs are designed to protect against electric shocks and are commonly used in areas where water is present, such as kitchens or bathrooms. Regularly test GFCIs to ensure they are functioning properly. Press the “Test” button and verify that the power supply is immediately cut off. If a GFCI fails the test, have it repaired or replaced promptly.

Keep Workspaces Clean and Organised

Cluttered workspaces increase the risk of accidents, including electrical hazards. Ensure that work areas are kept clean and organised. Remove any debris, cords, or equipment that are not in use and properly store tools and equipment to prevent accidental damage.

Establish an Emergency Response Plan

In the event of an electrical incident, having a well-defined emergency response plan is crucial. The plan should include evacuation procedures, contact information for emergency services, and designated personnel responsible for handling emergencies. Regular drills and practice sessions should be conducted to ensure that employees are familiar with the plan.
