The Victorian OH&S Act 2004 clearly states:
“An employer must so far as is reasonably practical, provide and maintain for employees a working environment that is safe and without risk to health”
The only way for you to ensure your electrical equipment is safe is to have it tested and tagged.
No Employer or Principal is exempt from providing duty of care to all their staff!
