The IEE Code of Practice has been prepared to ensure that electrical equipment is maintained properly so to prevent danger.   

The Code makes reference to the following Regulations and Acts :

By adhering to these statutory requirements within these regulations and Acts it shows that your company is committed to:

Health and safety by developing a safer environment for all staff and clients.

Reducing the risks of fire and electrocution on your premises caused by faulty portable appliances or fixed installation.

Insurance companies may invalidate a clients insurance policy if a fire can be attributed to a faulty portable appliance or fixed installation.

Fire certificates may not be issued to establishments without an in date portable appliance test or fixed installation test.

This Act puts a duty of care upon  both employer (Sections 2,3 and 4 etc.) and employee (Section 7) to ensure the safety of all persons using the work premises. This includes the self-employed.

Every employer shall make a suitable and sufficient assessment of :

a) the risks to the health and safety of his employees to which they are exposed while they are at work, and

b) the risks to the health and safety of persons not in his employment arising out of or in connection with the conduct by him of his undertaking (Regulation 3).

Every employer shall ensure that work equipment is maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair (Regulation 5).

Where the safety of work equipment depends on installation conditions, and where conditions of work are liable to lead to deterioration, the equipment shall be inspected (Regulation 6).

Every employer shall ensure that work equipment is so constructed or adapted as to be suitable for the purpose for which it is used or provided and is only used for work which it is suitable(Regulation 4).

As may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger (Regulation 4).
