Safety in Electrical Testing at Work
The UK Health and Safety Executive has revised its Safety in Electrical Testing At Work (INDG354) publication.
The leaflet is aimed at people who manage or carry out electrical testing, and gives guidance on controlling risks and preventing or reducing danger arising from these activities. The intended audience is anyone involved in electrical testing that is linked to quality assurance tests on electrical components, as well as diagnostic testing, fault finding on electrical plant and routine safety checks.
The guidance reinforces the need to provide a safe working environment and to establish a safe system of work for all involved in electrical testing, and for those who work on or near all types of electrical equipment.
