This service takes into account every aspect of the Regulations, satisfying the requirement for employers to provide safe places of work, make provision for safe people at work and operate safe systems of work.

Safe Places of Work

Our inspection, testing and drawing programmes are undertaken in order to satisfy numerous requirements within the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. Dangerous electrical conditions identified in the course of our programmes are highlighted immediately and the appropriate action advised.

Safe People at Work

In addition to the City & Guilds electrical series we also provide a number of electrical and safety training courses aimed at raising competence levels amongst operatives throughout the electrical industry.
