Electrical Safety

What you need to know

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 cover all work activities and establishments. They require the employer to have regard for all foreseeable electrical risks, taking into account the construction and installation of the systems and equipment used, and also the sighting of such systems and equipment. This is an absolute duty of the Employer to comply with these regulations. 

You need to do the following:


Installation Testing

All electrical installations and equipment should be tested regularly by someone qualified to carry out such a test. Any work that is carried out on electrical systems must not give rise to danger and should be disconnected from the source of supply.


PAT (Portable Appliance Testing)

PAT testing should be carried out on all portable appliances. PAT tests are required on an annual basis for portable appliances and 6 monthly on hand held appliances.


Operate your Generator correctly & safely

You need to ensure that you operate your generator in the correct fashion. Failure to do so could put you, your employees and the public's lives in danger.

You can find electrical contractors who can inspect your electrical installation and equipment on the NICEIC website
