Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (EAWR) places a legal responsibility on employers and employees, as duty holders, to ensure that electrical systems used at work under their control are safe.
The Electricity at Work regulations aim to prevent death or injury to any person from electrical causes while working or in a work environment. This can include electric shocks or burns, electric arching and fires or explosions started or caused by electricity. This course explains the requirements and the implications of the UK Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 for those responsible for electrical safety at work throughout the industry, commercial premises, shops, offices, schools, hospitals etc. It clearly outlines the duties and responsibilities of everyone affected by the legislation.
