Quarries and Mines Compliance: Electricity (Australia) Mobile App
The Quarries and Mines Compliance: Electricity (Australia) mobile app is designed to assist mines and quarries in meeting occupational health and safety requirements.
How does it work?
It is ideal to use prior to formal inspections and audits.
The checklist includes area specific audit criteria as well as a place to record notes and actions taken. It covers the following areas: Electricity – risk control, Assess risks: use of electricity, Plans of electrical installations, Compliance with standards, Appropriate electrical qualifications, Design and supply, Security and access, Removal and restoration of electrical power, Safe electrical work, Inadvertent contact: live conductors, Commissioning: installation, Testing of electrical installations, Inspection and maintenance – installations, Electrical cut-outs, Earthing, Switch gear, Flexible trailing and reeling cables, Inspect and maintain: articles, Electrical cords, cables and fittings, Dismantling and storage and Maintenance of records.
It is vital to refer to current legislation, rather than only relying on information acquired from this compliance app. Read each question carefully and determine if it applies to your mine or quarry. Items that do not apply can easily be deleted from this mobile app. You can also add items that you feel need special consideration.
