Theft is a major concern for any business owner, from the obvious financial implications, disruptions of operations and insurance paper works to the impact of morale on your workforce.
The Electricity at Work Regulations place legal responsibility on employers and employees and to comply with the regulations and take steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of electrical equipment in the workplace. The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances:
- Where appliances are used by employees.
- Where the public may use appliances in establishments such as hospitals, schools, hotels, shops etc.
- Where appliances are supplied or hired.
- Where appliances are repaired or serviced.
However this is but one of many laws that outline the responsibilities of business concerning electrical appliances. Others include: The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999, The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.
