SafeWork SA - Electrical Safety - Code of Practice

The Code of Practice Managing electrical risks in the workplace provides practical guidance for persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBUs) on managing electrical risks in the workplace. It applies to all workplace where a PCBU:

 

If you are a PCBU you must make sure that electrical equipment is regularly inspected and tested by a competent person if the electrical equipment is:

 

supplied with electricity through an electrical socket outlet; and
used in an environment which exposes the equipment to operating conditions that are likely to result in damage to the equipment or a reduction in its expected life span, including conditions that involve exposure to moisture, heat, vibration, mechanical damage, corrosive chemicals or dust.

 

A competent person is someone who has acquired, through training, qualification or experience, the knowledge and skills to carry out the task. This could be a worker at your workplace who has completed a nationally accredited training course, run by a registered training organisation, on the use of a portable appliance tester for in-service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment. A licensed electrical worker is deemed to be competent for the purpose of electrical inspection and testing.

 

You must not use any electrical equipment that has not been tested. The exception is newly-purchased electrical equipment, straight out of the box. This equipment is deemed to have been tested but needs to indicate the next due date for testing.

 

We regularly check that electrical testing requirements are being met.
