Under the legislation listed below, it is a requirement for all portable electrical equipment to be maintained in a safe manor for its use by anyone on your premises or used by anyone working for you outside of your premises. In order for correct maintenance to be carried out, it is necessary to inspect and test this equipment on a regular basis.

We at Anchor Health & Safety can carry out these tests and / or inspections on your behalf, advise you of any maintenance or repair that may be necessary and keep the required records to enable future monitoring. All tests and inspections are carried out in full accordance with the IEE code of practice for “the testing and inspection of in service electrical equipment”, using only engineers that have been trained specifically in the use of that code and have received a nationally recognised qualification.
