Be Safe not Sorry

Do you know the current legal requirements for electrical safety regulations in England and Wales?

A key electrical safety law, often referred to as Part P of the Building Regulations, aims to improve electrical safety in the home and prevent the number of electric shocks, accidents and fires, which are caused by faulty electrical work.
Part P, which only applies to England and Wales, requires an electrical installation to be safe and one way to ensure this is to use an electrician registered with a government approved scheme (such as NICEIC and ELECSA) to carry out notifiable electrical work in domestic premises.

After completion of any work electricians will issue their clients with a Building Regulations compliance certificate to prove it meets the required standards of Part P. Householders can only carry out electrical work themselves if they are able to inspect and test the work so it is safe. To comply with the law, householders must notify their local building control office before they begin any work and pay the appropriate fee for building control officers to inspect the work.
Most electrical installation work undertaken after 1st January 2005 should have appropriate certificates.
Electricity at Work Regulations 1989

The purpose of the Regulations, which came into force on 1st April 1990, is the need for precautions to be taken against the risk of death or personal injury from electricity during work activities. The Regulations are made under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act
1974, which imposes duties on employers, the self-employed and on employees (all referred to as ‘duty holders’) in respect of systems, electrical equipment and conductors, and in respect of work activities on or near electrical equipment.
