Regular risk assessments identify potential hazards in the workplace. By doing a risk assessment, employers and employees can drastically lower the potential risk of injury or fatality. The same is true for an electrical risk assessment, except that it is primarily for those professionals who install and maintain electrical equipment.
An electrical risk assessment is a comprehensive assessment that identifies potential hazards and management measures to keep persons who work with electrical equipment safe.

An electrical risk assessment will also highlight that your company takes precautionary measures to guarantee the electrical work completed on your property or building is done correctly.
