The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, recommends that all electrical works in the UK conforms to IET Wiring Regulations, known as BS 7671. BS 7671 covers the design, selection, erection, inspection and testing of electrical installations. The Electrical Installation Certificate provides written confirmation that the electrical installation work to which it relates has been designed, constructed, and inspected and tested in accordance with BS 7671:2008(2011).
These requirements may seem confusing, therefore our services will encompass advisement on your statutory responsibilities. Our service will ensure your existing installation complies with these regulations and standards and we can implement an inspection schedule and strategy to ensure your fixed wiring remains compliant at all times. Compliance with BS 7671 is increasingly being required by Insurance Companies and local HSE departments.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 which incorporates the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1992, a statutory legal duty is placed on all Employers. They must ensure employees and all others are not subjected to risks to their health and safety in the workplace In particular, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 require those in control of part or all of an electrical system to ensure the system is safe to use and is maintained in good condition throughout its working life.
