Electrical Isolation


Appropriate procedures are required to achieve an acceptable level of risk when persons are working on plant/equipment. Different tasks are involved in working with energy sources (electrical, mechanical, fluid/gas etc) however, the basic procedures for reducing risks are similar.

A variety of Regulations, Standards, Codes of Practice and Guidelines exist to implement tag and lockout procedures when working on plant/equipment. With relatively minor changes in terminology, for example substituting mechanical for electrical, most will provide adequate guidelines for working with all forms of powered plant/equipment. In addition, a common set of procedures across trades and power types should lessen the risk of misunderstanding when implementing the procedures.
