Safe Management of Electrical Appliances
SHERM developed a Safe Management of Electrical Appliances Program due to the misuse of common electrical appliances at Laurier. This program provides requirements and procedures relating to the management of electrical hazards for the University community to safely use common electrical wiring and devices such as power bars, extension cords, plugs, receptacles and common electrical appliances such as space heaters, microwaves, fridges etc. This document also describes elements to consider prior to using new equipment or used equipment newly acquired in order to ensure your safety and to ensure it meets current regulation, code or standard.
