What is Electrical Safety Testing?

Ensuring that electrical systems and equipment are intact and functioning efficiently and safely is the purpose behind Electrical Safety Testing. Faulty electrical items could easily result in serious damage to property and injury to individuals, not to mention litigation. The need to pursue such precautionary measures as electrical testing is therefore vital.

Electrical Safety

What does it involve?

One of the first steps of an electrical test is to look at the electrical equipment. The electrician will inspect the cables for visible wear and damage. This helps spot most problems that arise. Of course, it does happen once in a while that the problem is more serious, which is why it is vital to use a trained electrician for electrical testing.

Regulations

In many environments, electrical testing is a legal requirement. Electricity testing regulations that are relevant to the UK are the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999, the Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations 1992 and the Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER)1998.

The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 puts the duty of care upon both employer and employee when it comes to ensuring the safety of all persons using the working environment (this includes the self-employed). The PUWER 1998 covers most of the risks that can result from using work equipment. With regards to risks from electricity, compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 is likely to achieve compliance with PUWER 1998.

It is clear that the combination of the HSW Act 1974, PUWER 1998 and the EAW Regulations 1989 apply to all electrical equipment used in, or associated with, places of work. The scope extends from distribution, right down to the smallest item of electrical equipment.
