Updated advice reflecting the fact that almost a quarter of all reportable electrical accidents at work involve portable equipment and that the vast majority cause electrical shock. New sections cover the subjects of cables and repair/replacement. Addressed primarily to employers, employees and self-employed who use, or have control over, such equipment. In addition to general advice covering equipment that may be connected to a fixed mains or locally generated supply, the guidance also advises on what the legal requirements for maintenance can mean in practice. Covers a whole spectrum of everyday equipment including drills, extension leads, hand lamps, portable grinders, pressure water cleaners, floor cleaners, kettles and similar equipment. Includes full coverage of duties under the law.
