No electrical system can be considered ‘Safe’ for use until it has been Inspected & Tested. Furthermore, all electrical systems deteriorate with age and use; established systems should always be tested, on a scheduled basis, to ensure compliance with BS 7671. This type of certification is now increasingly being required by Insurance Companies and the local HSE departments.
Under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 which incorporates The Management of Health and Safety at Work regulations 1992, a statutory legal duty is placed on all Employers to ensure that employees and all others are not subjected to risks to their health and safety. In particular, The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 requires those in control of part or all of an electrical system to ensure that the system is safe to use and it is maintained in a safe condition.
Introduction Pat Testing
Pat testing or portable appliance testing is an important part of any health & safety policy. This site is intended as a guide to both the legal implications and to the technical requirements.
The Health & Safety Executive states that 25% of all reportable electrical accidents involve portable appliances. The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment.
This in effect requires the implementation of a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing. The Health & Safety at work Act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances:
1. Where appliances are used by employees.
2. Where the public may use appliances.
3. Where appliances are supplied or hired.
4. Where appliances are repaired or serviced.

Electrical accidents happen more often than you think
Every year in UK around 70 people die and 1.2 million are injured as a result of electrical accidents at home.
The good news is that many of these injuries and deaths could be prevented by RCD protection - whether in the form of portable (plug-in) RCD, an RCD built into a socket or, best of all, RCD fixed in your consumer unit (fusebox).
Like smoke detectors, RCD installed in your home could one day save your life.
Plug into Safety
Whenever you are working in the garden or planning a few home improvements, first make sure you are protected by an RCD. It could make the difference between life and death.
