The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
The 'Electricity at Work Regulations 1989' (EAW) were made under the 'Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974' and set out the requirements for the safety of electrical systems and equipment.
The regulations 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 lead to prosecution.
Compliance implies that the whole maintenance programme should be carried out by technically qualified and experienced people.

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