Abstract The objective of the SOBANE approach (screening, observation, analysis and evaluation) is to ensure occupational safety and health by means of a systematic analysis of occupational hazards. This booklet presents the SOBANE approach applied to electrical hazards. Following a review of general aspects of occupational safety and health management, it explains how to proceed with the observation, analysis and evaluation, together with the qualifications required for carrying out these steps. The main aspects of the following topics are summarized on information sheets: basic principles of electricity; circuit breakers; electrical hazards (electrocution, fire); static electricity; charging of batteries; Belgian and European regulations.
