Electrical Safety Inspections: Your Questions Answered

In light of Electrical Safety Week, our Engineering Team Leaders were invited onto The Citation Podcast to discuss the serious repercussions that employers could face if they don’t comply with electrical safety regulations.

This podcast episode airs just three years after a young boy was fatally electrocuted at a local pub after touching exposed wires outside. The lack of electrical safety on this premises went on to kickstart the campaign for the Harvey Tyrrell Bill which aims to crack down on electrical safety in pubs by making it a legal requirement for pub owners to get their electrical systems checked at least every five years.

Local authorities will also be expected to carry out thorough inspections to make sure businesses are compliant and have their electrical training, documentation, and standard safety measures in place and up to date.

These types of accidents can happen in any setting, so you should make sure your business’ electrical safety is up to scratch to avoid any serious harm or danger that could cost you your business.

Join Gareth Dixon and Matthew Wellington as they speak to Citation’s Health & Safety Content Manager, Michael Brown, and discuss how businesses’ lack of electrical safety knowledge can put their employees and customers in serious danger. In this episode, they discuss:

  • Electrical safety regulations businesses are expected to comply with
  • The qualifications and standards to look out for when hiring an engineer
  • Common mistakes our clients make and the myths to look out for
  • Understanding your electrical report results
