It makes no difference if you are a small, medium, or large business we all must abide by the same laws.
Electricity is highly dangerous in the work environment. Every year 19 people are killed in the work place and a further 880 people experience non fatal shocks. (source NICEIC.com) The chances are, these accidents can be avoided. This is where electrical safety testing is needed.
You as an employer are bound by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Electricity at Work Act 1989. You have a duty to your employees and visitors to ensure that your premises are safe from defects to the electrical system. By having electrical safety testing done you will avoid breaking the laws mentioned above and you will be able to provide a safe environment for everyone.
Depending on your business type and normal daily activity on your premises would determine the certificate valid period. Sites with high activity of forklift trucks would have considerably less time than perhaps a hair dressers.
