1. Toolbox Talk September 15 A GDF SUEZ ENERGY SERVICES COMPANY THINK SAFETY – WORK SAFELY Portable Electrical Equipment Almost 25% of all serious electrical accidents involve portable equipment. Conditions and practices that are likely to lead to accidents include using unsuitable equipment, maintenance and use of defective apparatus. Failure to maintain equipment is a major cause of accidents, however the likelihood and severity of accidents occurring will vary depending on;-  The type of electrical equipment  The way in which it is used  The environment in which it is used. Most portable equipment is used on a daily basis so it is easy to become over familiar with them. This could result in a number of dangers being present in the working environment, including fire and electric shock. To reduce risk, be on the lookout for defects and uphold the following company procedures when it comes to controlling and mitigating any dangers;- Use of Unsuitable Equipment: – Under no circumstances should we use unauthorised electrical equipment (i.e. not company property.) All unauthorised equipment will be confiscated immediately. Use of defective Equipment: – If the equipment that you are using develops a fault or becomes defective quarantine it. Replacements will be provided where necessary. Misuse of Equipment: - Employees should use all portable hand tools in the correct manner, be vigilant of any bad habits or complacency creeping in. Inadequate Maintenance: - In accordance with company procedure all 110 and 230V items that are used on site including electrical hand/power tools must be inspected and tested by a competent person every 3 months. When it comes to items in workshops the frequency of inspection goes from 3 to 6 months, as the equipment should not be subjected to such a harsh environment. Following this toolbox please check the PAT test sticker of grinders etc. to ensure it is within date.
