Seaward has introduced a free booklet providing common sense guidance for all individuals and organisations involved in workplace electrical safety testing.
The new publication is specifically intended to help those involved in electrical safety testing understand how electrical health and safety obligations can be fulfilled in a realistic and cost effective manner and without the need for unnecessary or excessive inspection and testing regimes.
A Common Sense Approach to Electrical Safety Testing in The Workplace is particularly intended for companies and organisations that manage or commission portable appliance testing services.
The booklet describes the importance of establishing inspection and testing measures that are appropriate to each particular environment or workplace and which are in keeping with the specific risks posed.
Sections are included on the relevant legislation‚ risk management strategies¸ test periods and test equipment.
