Electrical regulations continually evolve for construction sites and it is imperative that every site complies with the latest regulations. One service provided by Stratton Electrical is to test the electrics on your site to ensure that your site complies with BS7671, BS7375 and The Electricity at Work Regulations - in particular Reg 4(2).
Failure to comply with these regulations will contravene both the Health and Safety at work Act and the Electricity at Work Regulations placing the employees in danger and risking prosecution of the company and its directors.
