The latest newsletter from the QLD Government Electrical Safety Office discusses the risks of live unterminated cables. These cables, which are a risk to everyone, not just electrical workers, can often go on undetected. The newsletter describes the importance of visual inspection and walkthroughs and tells you what to do if you encounter unterminated cables.
The Electrical Safety Office has no tolerance for incidents relating to live unterminated cables, and will take action in all circumstances (regardless of whether an electric shock has occurred or not). Therefore, we highly recommend that you read this newsletter and educate yourself!
