The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 requires any electrical system to be constructed, maintained and used in such a manner as to prevent danger. This means that inspection and testing of systems, including portable appliances, is needed in order to determine if maintenance is required.
This book explains in clear language what needs to be done and includes expert advice on legislation as well as actual testing. The book contains an appendix providing the electrical fundamentals needed by non-specialists and also has sample questions (with answers) for the C&G 2377 exam. It is also an ideal revision guide for the non-specialist, such as maintenance staff and caretakers who carry out these tasks part-time, alongside their many other duties.
"A good solid basis on which to learn about In service testing. This book gives you the basics of the subject, including legislation as well as actual testing. All in all a handy reference book for quick check backs and decent refresher quiz on relevant questions." AMAZON.CO.UK READER REVIEW (review of previous edition)
