New Common Sense Guide to Portable Appliance Testing

09 September 2010

Seaward has introduced a free booklet providing guidance for companies, and organisations involved in workplace electrical safety testing. The new publications are specifically intended to help those involved understand how electrical health and safety obligations can be fulfilled in a realistic and cost effective manner and without the need for unnecessary or over excessive inspection and testing regimes.

‘A Common Sense Approach to Electrical Safety Testing in the Workplace’, is aimed at companies and organisations that utilise 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.

The guide recognises the vital role that electrical inspection and testing plays in identifying many situations where defective equipment could have caused electrocution or fire and explains how in the vast number of cases the cost of taking an inspection and testing approach can be lower than that associated with other forms of assessing risk.

Further details of booklet is available from

www.seaward.co.uk or by telephoning 0191 586 3511.
