What Does Managing Electrical Safety & Controlling Electrical Hazards Mean?
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and the Memorandum of Guidance with which it is published, lay down comprehensive but non-technical requirements for ensuring that the hazards of electricity are properly controlled. This means that those working with, or in the vicinity of, high risk electrical hazards – or those managing such situations – must, having identified hazards, be able to select and put in place the most appropriate methods of controlling the risks that arise from those hazards.
