  1. 1. Occupational health&saftey In the office Office Electrical safety Hello, I’m Eli-electrical guide, And in this presentation ill show you how to cope with electrical hazards
  2. 2. Hazard Extension lead which has exposed wiring or damaged insulation.?? Use extension leads for temporary connection - not as a permanent method of supplying power. If an extension cord has to be used and is exposed to foot traffic, make sure it is secured (taped down?) and protected from damage. Extension leads solutions
  3. 3. Clearing jams in photocopiers, paper shredders Hazard- Inserting fingers or metal objects (screwdrivers, letter-openers) into working parts of office machines Check that photocopiers and shredders can not be opened whilst power remains switched on.

  5. 5. Overloading Hazard- Using a series of adaptors to connect additional appliances to a power socket to which it is may overload the circuit attached, and cause an 'outage'. If additional appliances needed permanently, install a larger power socket (eg. 4 - sockets). Discourage the use of adaptors and connection of unauthorised appliances which may overload the circuit dangerously (eg. fan heaters, electric radiators in winter). solutions
  6. 6. The hazards associated with electrical work can be linked to how and where it is used as well as to the inherent dangerous properties of electrical currents. The hazards associated with electrical work include: Electrical currents are not visible, neither is there any smell or sound; it does not need to be high voltage for electrocution to occur; the unknown presence of overhead or underground power lines; poor electrical installation; faulty electrical equipment; unqualified persons working with electricity; fires and explosions as electricity can be an ignition source; working in wet weather conditions; working in confined spaces; and working with conductor metals Facts
