2) General safety and security: Electrician must be locked all the gates while working and leaving the substation. Any suspicious activity must be reported and usage of fire, alcohol, drugs and firearms must be avoided near or inside the substation.
3) Damage: Any damaged property must be repaired and informed immediately. The substation must be very clean and no thrash or food items are to be left inside or near the substation.
