It’s easy to take electricity for granted - just flick a switch and the light comes on. But electricity can also be an invisible danger that can cause shocks, severe burns and death, as well as fires and explosions.
In some cases, there is no warning of the danger to come. Fortunately, with a proper system of installation, checking and testing, you can protect yourself, your staff and property.
By law, you are required to install, maintain and test your electrical systems and equipments in a safe condition. To achieve this you will need to carry out an assessment to determine what electrical systems and equipments you have in the workplace and how they are used, together with details of the installation, servicing, maintenance and testing procedures. Once you have this information, you should be able to decide whether you need to do anything more.
It is probably best to leave repairs and major works to a competent electrician. But when you consider that 95% of faults and damage can be found by visual inspection ie just by looking, you may decide to do the checking yourself.
Electrical equipment installation and testing must be carried out by a competent person or electrician, using the correct equipment. Unlike visual inspection, which can only spot damage, testing will ensure that the electrical system and appliances are functioning correctly, and that they are properly earthed, etc.
