Electricity at Work Regulations

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 expand on the rules regarding electrical safety in the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. As with the HASAWA, employers are given duties and responsibilities to make sure that all work activity that uses or may be affected by electricity is done safely, and that all foreseeable risks are assessed and minimised as much as possible.

The regulations are not purely to prevent electric shocks, but also mean employers must take into account the suitability, design, construction and installation of electrical systems used for specific tasks in the workplace, where such systems are sited and the protection and precautions provided for the use of such systems.
