RGIS TEST & TAG – Safety in the workplace
Safety in the Australian workplace is a fundamental responsibility for all employers. One of the most dangerous power sources that we all use every day is electricity. It is most important to ensure that all your electrical appliances cords are operating safely for all employees who use them.
Around 10% of appliances, when tested, fail their first round of testing.
It is the duty of the person conducting a business or undertaking, under the WHS Act to ensure, so far as is reasonably practical, that all persons in the workplace are not exposed to electrical risks arising from the operations conducted by the business. This duty requires eliminating, or if that is not reasonably practicable, minimising the electrical risks. Duty holders may have additional legal obligations under Australian state or territory electrical safety legislation. Please see SWA website
