Importance of Safe Isolation
Unintentional energization of circuits, machinery and equipment is a leading cause of death and injury among electrical contractors in the UK. To minimize this type of accident regulations such as the “Provision and Use of Work Equipment 1998, Section 19 Energy” and the “Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, Regulation 13” require companies to have effective isolation policies in place.
Most accidents can be avoided by installing simple lockout / tagout devices prior to any electrical work being carried out.
