Updated guidance on portable electrical equipment

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published an updated version of guidance document HSG107 – Maintaining portable electrical equipment, which gives advice to managers, electricians, technicians and users on maintaining portable electrical equipment to prevent danger.

HSG107 covers equipment that is connected to the fixed mains supply or a locally generated supply and outlines a recommended maintenance plan based on a straightforward, inexpensive system of user checks, formal visual inspection and testing.

The guidance has been updated to clarify what the legal requirement for maintenance of portable electrical equipment means in practice. The table of suggested frequencies has been updated and now includes clearer information for all types of business including construction.

We’re at the SHE Show North East 2013!

We are excited to announce that we will be exhibiting at the SHE Show North East, at Newcastle Marriott Gosforth Park, on 26 November 2013.

The SHE Show is a high profile conference running alongside an exhibition featuring key suppliers and service providers in the fields of safety, health and environment. Celebrating its fifth year, it has now become one of the most successful events of its kind in the SHE arena.

This year, the conference programme promises to deliver a line-up of topical, thought-provoking and entertaining speakers. The focus of the day will be real practical solutions and you will be able to get help and advice on ways to overcome the future challenges that most SHE professionals face in this current climate.

Our consultants will be on hand, so come to Stand 9 and see us. You'll be able to try Cedrec for yourself and see how we make legislation simple, and also test our knowledge with any burning environment or safety questions you may have! We can probably throw in a free mug too…

You can find out more about the show at thesheshow-northeast.com, along with how to register as a delegate. Full details on the conference programme and speakers are available here.
