Where common connectors, plugs or sockets are used, they shall be assessed as part of the risk management process to identify risks associated with incorrect connection. Appropriate controls shall be applied where there is a risk of inadvertent or incorrect operation or energization of the plant. Risk controls may include the use of digitally encoded addressing of individual component parts to prevent incorrect operation or energization if misconnected.
Where unused cabling or conductors are not removed, they shall be disconnected and isolated from the source of supply, terminated and/or insulated from all points of connection to prevent inadvertent reconnection, and suitably marked to indicate termination points and the reason for disconnection.
All live parts shall be arranged or protected so that a short-circuit or arcing, either between live parts or between live parts and other conductive material, shall not occur during normal conditions of service or during maintenance activities, including the use of metallic or other conductive tools.AS NZS 4871.6 pdf free download.
