Electrical Safety

All staff and students are reminded not to repair, modify or interfere with electrical equipment in anyway. Equipment constructed or modified must undergo a certification procedure undertaken by an approved area such as the School Electronics Unit or School Electrician. Please do not use electrical equipment overdue for testing, and if overdue bring it to the attention of your supervisor.

Turn off faulty electrical equipment and unplug it. Attach and sign a ‘Danger- Do Not Operate’ tag (available from School Store) and bring it to the attention of your supervisor.

The use of privately-owned electrical appliances at the ANU is discouraged. Any personal electrical equipment brought to the ANU needs to be inspected, tested and tagged. The School Electronics Unit can assist if appliances are taken to them, and will advise the time interval for re-testing.
