Electrical Safety Audit Report Template

To reduce the risk of electrical fires malfunctions, perform mandatory sequence testing on your substations, facilities, and plants. Conduct mandatory sequence testing on equipment and ensure there is adequate floodlighting to improve site security.

An electrical safety audit is meant to assess the functionality of the following electrical components:

  • • Mains, switchboards, sub-boards, earthing
  • • Cables and conduits
  • • Appliances, fittings, accessories, and equipment
