Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 cover electrical systems, equipment and conductors and work activities on or near electrical equipment. The purpose of the Regulations is to require precautions to be taken against the risk of death or person.
Appliance in Use tests (also called Portable Appliance Tests, or PAT) are not a legal requirement, but the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (EWR1989) require that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition.
The requirements of EWR1989 can be met by performing in-service inspection and testing. This consists of 3 activities:
Regular visual checks by users themselves, or formal visual inspections. In higher risk environments, formal visual inspections should be combined with physical testing by a qualified technician with the right equipment and training.
Performing maintenance or, if necessary, replacing the defective item of equipment (depending upon the results of the in-service inspection and testing).
3. Keep records
Although the Electricity at Work Regulations do not require the keeping of records, up-to-date information can be a means of showing that a maintenance scheme exists.
Greenlite Group's Lighting Maintenance team carry out this service at set regular intervals to ensure you remain within the statutory requirements. We also complete a full asset register to ensure that you are fully aware of the equipment you have on each site.
All products supplied by Greenlite Group are fully tested to ensure they comply with all current electrical legislation such as the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. As part of our scheduled maintenance programme, all appliances are again tested in use and fixed or replaced where problems are identified.
Greenlite Group's fixed price maintenance plans are a good option for customers keen to keep track and accurately plan maintenance budgets.
We offer thermal imaging to help assist with electrical compliance.
A Greenlite Group Thermographic Survey detects electrical faults before components fail.
Loose connections and load imbalances that are not always apparent or detected by conventional checks such as routine maintenance or periodic test and inspection can lead to a build-up of heat and fire. These can be identified using thermal imaging cameras.
This is a non-intrusive, proactive and efficient method of supplementing your planned preventative maintenance regime. And because it's non-intrusive, it's fast and efficient, and completed by one of our experienced engineers.
