Basic Electrical Safety on Construction Sites
NECA wishes to advise members of the basic electrical safety that should be observed in regard to the energising or de-energising of electrical circuits and cable. Circuits and equipment should be definitively tagged out for de-energised work. High visibility tags and physical locks should be used to inform and warn that electrical power is isolated. Where multiple workers are involved each should put their individual tag/lock in place to ensure that circuits are not re-energised when others are still working. Tags should not be removed except by an authorised person or the owner of the tag.
