What is an electrical installation risk assessment?
A risk assessment for electrical installations is a process that aids electricians to identify hazards, assessing risks, and putting in place risk controls before they begin work. The worker must consider the possibility of an electrical accident and the potential for injury during the assessment.
It is important to remember that NFPA70E, the workplace safety standard that requires this risk assessment, does not detail a specific assessment process. It outlines the elements that make up an electrical installation risk assessment. Employers are responsible for creating and maintaining the actual risk assessment plan.
Assessing the risk of electrical installations

Contractors can avoid shock and arc flash by following safe electrical work procedures, such as performing an assessment of circuits.
