The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989

Checking electrical equipment in the workplace for safety is a well-established practice, following the introduction of the Electricity at Work Regulations (EAWR) in 1989 and subsequently, the publication of the IEE Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment in 1994.

The EAWR came into force on 1st April 1990. They require precautions to be taken against the risk of death or injury from electricity in work activities - this includes equipment accessible to the public in offices, hotels, shops, schools and colleges, etc. 

Failure to comply with the requirements of the regulations may, in some cases, lead to prosecution.

How We Can Help

Our technicians are qualified to undertake this work on your behalf, and to help you comply with the EAW regulations.

We can undertake a formal inspection of every appliance and power lead, supplemented by electrical testing, where appropriate.

The equipment will be individually tagged with its overall safety status, a unique asset ID number and the date that the inspection was carried out.
