Test and Tagging Electrical Equipment
A hostile operating environment means a place of work where the electrical equipment or flexible supply cord is, in its normal use, subject to conditions that are likely to result in damage to the equipment. A non-hostile operating environment refers to a workplace where electrical equipment is used in a working environment that is dry, clean, well-organised and free of operating conditions that are likely to result in damage to the item of electrical equipment or flexible supply cord.

Why is it important?
Checking your workplace for faults is essential to ensure the health and safety of your employees and that of others who visit your workplace. Being aware of these hazards allows you to take action and ensure that no single person is at risk while using electrical equipment. These questions will help you evaluate if you are being proactive with your electrical risk assessment procedures.

Do you talk to your employees about electrical safety issues?
Do you encourage your employees to report electrical safety problems?
Do you regularly inspect and maintain your electrical equipment?
Do you fix identified electrical safety problems?

Elimination: Remove the hazard from the workplace altogether. This is the most effective way of reducing workplace risks and can be achieved by designing in or designing out certain features
Substitution: Replacing the hazardous component with one that is of a lesser risk is an option in the workplace. For example, using lower voltage equipment such as batter operated tools where applicable instead of those that plug into the walls
Isolation: Prevent any workers or visitors to come into contact with any electrical risk.
