Search item. In order to avoid accidents, certain requirements apply to the use and maintenance of electrical products. The operating manual is particularly important for private users. This includes testing, putting into operation, shutdown, usage, repair and maintenance, testing, safety measures during operation disruption, removal as well as disassembly and transport.
The requirements in terms of using electrical products are laid down in the Operational Safety Ordinance Betriebssicherheitsverordnung for application in the commercial sector. If quality requirements are not respected or if electrical products are used improperly, this can lead to accidents. In BAuA's resulting research report Fb , the authors conclude that "the causes of electrical accidents are primarily found in behavioural errors". This means that the improper use of electrical equipment and installations - i.
There are no technical measures for these cases. Educated information remains the only means of prevention here. In the commercial sector, this translates to guidance: Employees must be informed adequately, in particular about the hazards associated with the use of electrical products.
The private sector is not subject to occupational safety regulation. This is why it is particularly important that private users are informed about the hazards that can arise from the electrical products. The most important source of information is the manufacturers' operating instructions.
These documents describe the following:. In addition, there are numerous pages on the Internet dealing with questions of electrical safety in the private sector.
In the commercial sector, the manufacturer's data can serve as a basis for the hazard assessment. Based on the hazard assessment, the employer makes the necessary arrangements and ensures that the provisions of the applicable regulations for electrical products are observed during the entire operating period.

Search item. In order to make sure that work equipment is provided and used in a safe manner, you must, based on a risk assessment covering any and all work equipment, define and implement the measures necessary in this regard, supervise the efficiency of the implemented measures, and document the overall process. In so doing, systems requiring monitoring being used as work equipment by the employees when performing the work must be taken into consideration as well. Those hazards entailed by the provision and use of the work equipment itself, as well as hazards resulting from interactions with other work equipment, with substances, or with the work environment are the subject of the determination and evaluation. Please note: More detailed information on hazard factors can be found in the section expert knowledge.
