If you work at or provide a care service, you have a joint responsibility to maintain the electrical equipment used.

The updated guidance outlines what the law says about maintaining portable electrical equipment and provides simple and sensible precautions that need to be taken to prevent danger from portable or movable electrical equipment.

The guidance is available to view or download from the Health and Safety Executive website. (External link)
