Why Do I Need My Electrical Appliances Tested?

The Electricity At Work Regulation (1998) focuses on the 'Duty of Care' in relation to any machinery connected to the electricity supply via a removable plug. Neglecting electrical systems could result in injuries to your employees, lost income and fines imposed if found in breach of your statutory responsibilities. In some instances it may even invalidate your insurance claims. To assist companies to comply with this legislation the electrical industry has developed a range of tests to an industry standard. This ensures that all portable appliances are checked by a technician to ensure that they comply with the pre-defined standard and are safe for the purpose that they are designed for.
