What is required of you by law?

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 state that there is a need to maintain a regular program of inspection and testing of all electrical equipment. The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 puts the duty of care upon the employer and employee (and the self-employed) to ensure the safety of all persons within the workplace.

Wear and tear on portable electrical appliances can increase the risk of an electric shock, or even a fire. All items of electrical equipment in the workplace which plugs into a socket, e.g., computers, kettles, phone chargers, fridges, tools etc. need to be tested.
