Precautions while using Electrical Equipment

Assessing the risks from electricity

Consider the following hazards in your risk assessment: Live parts Normal mains voltage, 230 volts AC, can kill. Also, contact with live parts can cause shocks and burns. Fire Electrical faults can cause fires. This is particularly true where the equipment contains a heat source (e.g. heaters, including water heaters, washing machines, ovens, heat seal packaging equipment). Flammable or explosive atmospheres Electricity can be a source of ignition in a potentially flammable or explosive atmosphere, e.g. in spray paint booths or around refuelling areas. Where and how electricity is used The risks from electricity are greatest in harsh conditions.
