The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment. This in effect requires the implementation of a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing.
The level of inspection and testing required is dependant upon the risk of the appliance becoming faulty, which is in turn dependant upon the type of appliance, the nature of its use and the environment in which it is used.
The Institution of Electrical Engineers published the “Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment”. This guide forms the basis for portable appliance testing in the U.K.

Responsibility for complying with the Fire Safety Order rests with the 'responsible person'. If you are the responsible person you will have to carry out a fire risk assessment which must focus on the safety in case of fire of all ‘relevant persons’. It should pay particular attention to those at special risk, such as disabled people and those with special needs, and must include consideration of any dangerous substances likely to be on the premises.
