  • Consumer electronics – (abbreviated CE) are electronic equipment intended for everyday use, most often in entertainment, communications and office productivity. Consumer products include the broadcast receiver, personal computers, telephones, MP3 players, audio equipment, televisions, calculators, GPS automotive electronics, digital cameras and players and recorders using video media such as DVDs, VCRs or camcorders including large and small household appliances.
  • Electronic components – are generally intended to be connected together, usually by being soldered to a printed circuit board (PCB), to create an electronic circuit with a particular function (for example an amplifier, radio receiver, or oscillator). Components may be packaged singly, or in more complex groups as integrated circuits. Some common electronic components are capacitors, inductors, resistors, diodes, transistors, etc. Components are often categorized as active (e.g. transistors and thyristors) or passive (e.g. resistors and capacitors).
  • Electronic products – are generally referred as electronic consumer products such as large and small household appliances, televisions, audio/video machines including its accessories, digital receivers, phones, lightings, health care, and soon cameras, and video surveillance equipments.
  • Environment – The area surrounding the work site which can be directly or indirectly affected by occurrences at the work site. It includes the atmosphere, soils, drains, underground water tables, and the ecosystem. Protection of the environment would require the proper disposal of waste materials, restriction of burning off, the correct handling of toxic substances, the containment of CFCs and the like.
  • Established procedures – Formal arrangements of an organization, enterprise or statutory authority of how work is to be done.
  • Hazardous materials – Flammable gases and vapors and combustible dusts.
  • Industrial Electronics – the industry of making electronic products for industrial purposes
  • Modifications – To make changes to the physical parameters or operational function of a device, component or piece of equipment or apparatus.
  • Notification (notified) – Can include verbal, written, electronic or recorded information at completion of work which may be required to be completed in accordance with established procedures.
  • OH&S policies and procedures – Arrangements of an organization or enterprise to meet their legal and ethical obligations of ensuring the workplace is safe and without risk to health.
  • Printed circuit boards (PCBs) – is used to mechanically support and electrically connect electronic components using conductive pathways, tracks or signal traces etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non-conductive substrate. It is also referred to as printed wiring board (PWB) or etched wiring board. Printed circuit boards are used in virtually all but the simplest commercially produced electronic devices.
  • Requirements – That to which equipment and procedures and their outcomes must conform and includes statutory obligations and regulations and standards called-up by legislation or regulations.
  • Servicing – Undertaking routine inspection, repair and maintenance of circuits, systems or apparatus. Maintaining, fault finding and repair of equipment, plant and machinery.
  • Standards – Technical documents, which set out specifications and other criteria for equipment, materials, and methods to ensure they consistently, perform as intended.
  • System – A group or combination of inter-related, inter-dependent or interlocking elements forming a collective entity. Includes circuits, apparatus, equipment and the like.
  • Termination – The act by means of which an electrical connection to an apparatus is established; specifically a prepared joint or connection between a cable, cord or conductor and a point in an electrical circuit such as a terminal or connection point. Such terminations include soldering, crimping, clamping, wire wrapping, insulation piercing/compression.
  • Testing devices – Devices and instruments used to ensure safety requirements and operational functions are met, and to diagnose faults in apparatus, circuits or systems.
  • WEEE Directives – the prevention of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), and in addition, the reuse, recycling and other forms of recovery of such wastes so as to reduce the disposal of waste. It also seeks to improve the environmental performance of all operators involved in the life cycle of electrical and electronic equipment, e.g. producers, distributors and consumers and in particular those operators directly involved in the treatment of waste electrical and electronic equipment.
  • Wiring systems – Permitted cables, enclosures, supports and accessories for power, measurement, control or communications purposes.
