You and your workers’ health and safety should be the number one priority and never be compromised.
The best way to achieve this is to have appropriate safety procedures and training in place before the start of each job. Create a workplace where anyone can raise a workplace safety issue or speak up if they have a safety concern.
Here are some tips to follow to make sure everyone goes home safely at the end of each day:
- Ensure only fully licensed electricians who have been inducted into an installer’s safety program will be undertaking licensed work.
- Participate in the risk assessment of possible hazards at the start of each installation. For example, working at heights, working in ceiling spaces of homes and other buildings, and installing battery storage systems.
- Make sure any high-risk activities (e.g. working on or near exposed live parts) involve the use of a Safe Work Method Statement that has been developed in consultation with workers and is easily understood and followed.
