Risk Assessment
Step 1: Identify the Hazard
 During the inspection of the establishment it was
found that there were several pieces of electrical
equipment that were out of order and
 There were at least 3 kitchen appliances that were
found to have serious faults, such as broken
valves, frayed power cords and exposed live wires.
This damage was caused by workers tripping on
wires because they were laid across the floor.
 During an inspection it was found that the
appliances were still in use because the owner had
not replaced or repaired them.
 Due to the wet environment in the kitchen, there is
a high risk of workers being electrocuted by
attempting to use the damaged equipment.
Step 2: Risk assessment

Using the HAZPAK

calculator, it is
determined that the
risks involved in
this particular
hazard is rated at 2
Step 2, continued: Risk Assessment
What could happen?

vWorkers could be electrocuted, causing

electrical burns, severe cases include
hospitalization or death
vMechanical injuries
vElectrical fires could break out

 Because of all these risks, it is necessary that

the hazard should be controlled as soon as
Step 3: Controlling the Hazard
 We will use the Hierarchy of Control to look at the ways of
dealing with this hazard. Listed in order of importance are the
control methods that should be used.
Controlling the Hazard, part 2
 In order to maximise the safety of employees
and to reduce the risks in the future, several
steps need to be taken to ensure that the risk
does not present itself in the future:
 Regular maintenance of all equipment.
 Routine checkups and professional external
audits (outsourced from other companies)
 Immediately de-commision any
malfunctioning equipment by labelling them
as such and cutting the power cord in order to
prevent accidental usage.
 Notify workers to avoid or minimise the use of
extension cords, power boards or double
 In areas where a extension cord is necessary,
Step 4: Implement: Who’s responsible
and When?
Step 5: Monitoring and Reviewing
 Conduct toolbox meetings to decide if the risk
management plan is effective
 Make use of informal contacts with staff to ask
about the effectiveness of solutions
 Gather data from external sources on new
technologies or trends that could be used to
improve work place safety in regards to
 Collect data from incident reports, business
expenses and other staff to demonstrate
effectiveness of the plan
Step 6: Relevant OHS Legislations
 Occupational Health and Safety
Regulation 2001
 Division 3 - Electricity

(1)  A controller of premises must ensure that:

(a)  any electrical installation at the
premises:(i)  is safe at the time it is made
available for use by an employer, or (ii)  if not
safe, is disconnected from the electricity

informed that it is not safe, and
(c)  persons entering an area in which such
electrical installations are situated are
appropriately trained in issues such as safe
Legislation, part 2
 Division 8 Electricity
 64   Electricity—particular risk control
 2 (a)  Electrical installations at places of work

all electrical installations at a place of work are

inspected and tested, after they are installed and
prior to their energising for normal use, by a
competent person to ensure they are safe for use,
and (a1)  all electrical installations at a place of
work are maintained by a competent person to
ensure they remain safe for use
 (f)  any electrical cord extension sets, flexible
cables or fittings:(i)  are located where they are
not likely to be damaged (including damage by
liquids) or are protected against any damage, and
