Risk Assessment For The Installation And Testing Of 11kv Cables And Related Work

This Risk Assessment covers installations and testing of 11KV cables. The technical safety document "Installations and Testing of 11KV Cables" is uploaded for the premium users by HSE DOCUMENTS and the objective of this Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment document is to provide full support to the technical and installation team for the 11 kV cables safety and their related works.


  1. Working at height
  2. Lifting
  3. Material Storage
  4. Power Tools


  1. Physical and Health Injury
  2. Fall, stuck by, hit by materials, back injury
  3. Tripping 
  4. Strike by-Bursting of Disc

Response, Precautions and Control Measures

Wear a safety helmet, safety shoes, safety gloves, safety glasses and HV Jackets. Check materials tools before commencing work. Conduct housekeeping before and after work Disposed of waste separately regularly.

The material should be stored and segregated properly, having ensured access/egress routes.
