Many E.C. Directives relating to workplace safety, and the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) put the onus on the employer to ensure a safe working environment. This includes ensuring that electrical equipment or electrical tools are supplied safe and in good working order.
Section 4 (2) of the electricity at work regulations (1989) focuses on this “Duty of care” in relation to any appliance connected to the electricity supply via a removable plug.
So in short, mainly movable items with a plug attached.
This includes, among other items:
- Business equipment. computers, printers, scanners, shredders
- Telephone and audio equipment requiring mains power
- Extension cables, adapters for mobile phones and laptops
- Kettles, microwaves, toasters and other powered kitchen appliances
- Cleaning equipment, vacuum cleaners, floor polishers
- 110V and 240V site equipment
Note: We only test appliances that required testing, under the IEE code of practice, saving you both inconvenience and especially cost.
