4 Always conduct a risk assessment before any controls are implemented and a risk assessment after the controls are implemented to ensure the risk has been reduced. Using Electrical Equipment The following are general safety rules when using electrical equipment: 1. Electrical workers must hold current Electrical Workers licences and they only will carry out electrical work. 2. Always check to ensure that the electrical equipment used has been tested and tagged and is in current test date; 3. Always use portable electrical equipment in a workshop or construction site connected to a safety switch; 4. Specified electrical equipment used in manufacturing work must be protected by a fixed safety switch. 5. If using a portable safety switch always test that it trips after the equipment being used is plugged in, by pressing the test button on the side of the safety switch; 6. Never use a double adaptor or piggy back plug in a workshop, construction site or other work areas, including offices; use an appropriate power board; 7. If any electrical leads to portable equipment are frayed, or single insulated coloured cables are showing, do not use the equipment; 8. Place a Danger Out of Service tag on any faulty or damaged electrical equipment; and 9. If personal electrical equipment is to be used at the workplace, the Supervisor needs to approve and visually check it to ensure that it is safe, has been tested and tagged and is in current test date. Hire Equipment If electrical equipment has been hired and is to be used at the workplace, visually check it to ensure that it is safe, has been tested and tagged and is in current test date. If Seqwater is to hire out electrical equipment for use in a workplace, it is to be: 1. Inspected and tested by a competent person before every hire; 2. Inspected, tested and tagged by a competent person at least every 6 months; 3. Withdrawn from use if it is not safe to use or is not working properly, and a Danger Out of Order tag affixed to the equipment; and 4. Records of the test are to be kept for 5 years. Failure to do so could result in 40 penalty units or $3,000 penalty being imposed. Tagging Out Faulty Electrical Equipment Each time electrical appliances are to be used, they must be visually inspected for damage and there must be evidence of current tagging before use. If any electrical equipment is found faulty or does not work: 1. It is to be immediately removed from use; 2. It is to be tagged with a Danger Do Not Operate or Out of Service tag; 3. Your supervisor is to be notified immediately; and 4. This tag is only to be removed when this equipment is fixed. Note: The person finding the equipment out of order is required to place the tag on the equipment. (see Corporate Safety - Electrical Testing and Tagging Procedure (PRO-00307)) Document Number: PRO Version Date: 16/10/08 Page: 4 of 9

5 Machinery Maintenance If machinery or moving parts are being cleaned the equipment must be locked out and tagged to protect against accidental or inadvertent operation that could cause injury to employees or others. (see Lockout and Isolation Procedure PRO-00014) Second-hand Electrical Equipment Note: This section applies if Seqwater sells electrical equipment. Obligation of the seller of electrical equipment is: 1. The seller, (Seqwater) of electrical equipment has an obligation to ensure that when electrical equipment is sold, it is accompanied by information about the way it must be used to ensure that it is electrically safe; 2. Manufacturer s information contains this information and safe-use instructions for common type electrical equipment is avail on the Electrical Safety Office web site: 3. A person must not sell second-hand electrical equipment unless the person gives the purchaser information about whether the equipment has been tested (test results) and found to be electrically safe; and 4. If the equipment has not been tested the person selling the item of second-hand electrical equipment, must give the purchaser information that the equipment has not been tested and found to be electrically safe (tag attached to the electrical equipment). Failure to do so could result in 40 penalty units or $3,000 penalty being imposed. Electrical Switchboards 1. Ensure all electrical switchboards are kept free of obstructions and the doors are closed. (Include in the Workplace Hazard Checklist); and. 2. As a general rule a 1m clearance zone should be allowed in front of a switchboard and may be clearly indicated with yellow painted lines on the floor. Also protection from vehicle damage may be needed. 3. Periodically engage an Electrician to provide advice on conducting thermo scans and tests on large switchboards. Portable Generators 1. Always use a portable safety switch connected to a portable generator; and 2. Specialist advice may be sought from an electrician to identify the correct safety protection when using portable generators. Welding Safety When using an electric welder: 1. Do not touch live electrodes unless using insulated gloves; 2. Do not allow any part of the electrode to touch any part of the your body; 3. Ensure the electrode holders are of an all insulated type; and 4. Ensure the welding leads are correctly connected and in good condition. (see Corporate Safety - Hot Work Procedure (PRO-00009)) Document Number: PRO Version Date: 16/10/08 Page: 5 of 9

6 Metal Materials and Ladders 1. Any piece of metal is a conductor. Take extreme care when handling material such as reinforcing rods, metal piping, guttering, or roofing material in the vicinity of electrical overhead lines; 2. Metal scaffolding, planks and ladders are to be handled with extreme care in the vicinity of overhead power lines; and 3. Electrical workers must not use metal ladders if the ladder has the potential to be contact live wires and become energised. Overhead Lines Working near exposed and electrically live parts (such as overhead electric lines, electric wiring or underground cables) without proper precautions has the potential to kill and seriously injure. Even if you don't touch the exposed live parts you are still in danger, as high-voltage electricity (more than 1000 volts) can arc, or jump, gaps. Work around electricity in electric lines, around buildings, underground cables or repairing equipment is subject to the Code of Practice for Working Near Exposed Live Parts Under the Electrical Safety Regulation 2002 (Qld) (LEG-00192) an employer or selfemployed person must ensure that work performed in the conduct of their business does not involve: a person or any operating plant or vehicle coming into direct contact with an electrical part; a person or any operating plant or vehicle entering the exclusion zone for an electrical part. If cranes, pumping booms, tip trucks, elevating platform vehicles etc, come into contact with energised electrical overhead lines, it is extremely dangerous as they will become energised and may cause electrocution. There are specific clearances that must be maintained when working in the vicinity of overhead lines. This includes lines under the control of an electricity entity and also a customer s private line. Clearances for a particular person will depend on the training and authorisation of that person. 1. No person, including contractors, on Seqwater controlled land or construction workplace, is to enter the Exclusion Zone (3m) for overhead electric lines unless; Written safety advice is obtained from the Overhead Electric Line Owner; and The work is authorised by the Manager using the work permit. 2. No person, including contractors, on Seqwater controlled workplace is to operate any item of plant within the Safety Observer Zone for overhead electric lines unless: authorised by the work permit; or the person is an Authorised Person or an Instructed Person and has approval for the work under the work permit. 3. Low voltage electrical overhead lines near work areas may be covered with insulated covers such as black and yellow tiger tails or a similar arrangement indicated by the Overhead Electric Line Owner; Document Number: PRO Version Date: 16/10/08 Page: 6 of 9

7 4. Barriers may be installed to prevent vehicles coming within range for any contact with the electrical overhead lines; 5. A trained Safety Observer is to be used when in the vicinity of power lines and these conditions apply: The safety observer should not be required to carry out any other duty during the time they are carrying out duties as a Safety Observer; be competent in observing, warning and communicating effectively (this may mean the use of electronic communications, e.g., a two-way radio); be hazard and risk aware; be able to warn about approach to electrical apparatus; be able to stop the work if necessary; not be expected to observe more than one crane or plant at a time; not be located in an elevated work platform; and The safety observer should mark the border of the exclusion zone with suitable markers e.g. Red warning tapes or paint, which can easily be viewed by the machine operator. 6. Always look up before work starts and during work Document Number: PRO Version Date: 16/10/08 Page: 7 of 9
