The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 stipulates that ‘duty holders’ must ensure all people using the premises and equipment are safe; the level of inspection and testing is dependent on the risk of the appliance becoming faulty, the nature of its use and the environment in which it is being used; which we will manage for you.
