Electrical Services Isolation and Switching Policy

This policy outlines systems and procedures to control the risks of danger from electrical fires, burns or electric shocks.

The University recognises its statutory obligations under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 to identify and control the risks to staff, contractors and electrical and other maintenance operatives and engineers on-site from exposure to electrical dangers. It aims to do this by having procedures in place which provide for the safe operation, switching and maintenance and the inspection and testing of electrical systems and equipment to prevent such danger.
