Electrical hazards continue to threaten safety of people and property in the form of shocks, burns, injury, fire and explosion. With electricity having become an indispensable part of our life, electrical risks are to be managed effectively. Electrical Safety Audit will be carried out considering IS (Indian standard)guidelines, IE(Indian electricity) rules etc. The Electrical safety audit carried out by us will cover the requirements of Electrical safety & energy conservation. Objective of Electrical safety audit, Undertake reviews, analyze, evaluate and install optimum value available safety/operational equipment s for achieving the accident free operations economically. Methodology of Electrical Safety Auditing, The electrical safety auditing includes the review of the documentation, onsite visit, data collection, analysis and data verification with respect to industry norms and peer data. Let us look at the steps in detail. Preaudit meeting, A preaudit or audit planning meeting is the first opening meeting to discuss the guidelines with the management and other concerned departments. The onsite activities, procedures and preparation for the actual audit are done. Onsite inspection, The site visit is done to identify the electrical hazards as per the scope of the audit. This includes inspection of all the electrical systems such as the incoming supply receiving section, all electrical equipment in the facility, cabling, earthing connections, lightning protection system, temporary wiring, possible electrical fire hazards etc. The verification of the installations is done with reference to the available drawings such as the single line diagrams, earthing layouts, etc. Documentation review, A review of all relevant documents regarding maintenance, testing, electrical inspection reports and other electrical records is done for the assessment of the facility. Audit closing meeting, The audit team meets and discusses their findings and recommendations with the members of the facility. Final report submission, Submission of the final electrical safety audit report to the client, with the recommendations and the agreed changes according to it. The above given steps complete the electrical safety auditing for a facility. By understanding the objectives, scope and methodology of performing an electrical safety auditing we learn its importance. We see that Electrical Safety Audit is a very important fact finding exercise and gap analysis study focused on electrical issues to ensure the safety and reliability of the electrical installations. For any existing plant with no history of any electrical issues, a third party audit can be conducted every 5 years. This is for the safety of the facility and the personnel working there and should be strictly followed. Insulation installers, An electrical safety inspector may audit you if you are a ceiling insulation installer (commercial and domestic) to make sure you meet the requirements of the Electrical Safety Regulation 2013 (Qld). The inspector will determine if you are aware of electrical safety risks related to the nature of your work and if you know how to address these risks. The inspection also focuses on whether you have procedures in place to address the risks associated with installing thermal insulation near electrical equipment in the ceiling. Pool installers, If you are a business involved in the pool construction industry (including construction of pool fencing), then you may be audited to ensure that your business or undertaking is conducted in a way that is electrically safe. New electrical equipment, Electric safety inspectors may conduct an audit if your business involves the selling of new electrical equipment. Retailers, wholesalers, internet, second hand, auction sellers and market sellers are required to ensure the electrical products they supply are safe and meet the relevant standards. Sellers of new in scope electrical equipment must also ensure that their products are linked to a registered responsible supplier. Decorative lighting, Electrical safety inspectors may audit you if you sell Christmas lights (decorative lighting equipment) to ensure the electrical products you supply are safe and meet the relevant standards.
