The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (EAW) state that maintenance inspections must be carried out at set frequencies to control risks, which can arise from use of electricity. The Duty Holder (employer in this case) must select precautions appropriate to the risk i.e. Regulation 4(2) requires that ‘as may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent as
far as practicable such danger’.
