                                    Electricity at Work Regulations (1989)

                                    When it comes to running your business, the Electricity at Work Regulations (1989) can have a large impact on what you can and can’t do. It is the ‘duty of every employer to comply with the provision of these Regulations’, so it is clearly important that you understand them.  But with so many pressures on your time and working lives, we know it can be hard to commit to learning about all the different rules and regulations.

                                    However, a helping hand is available through Schneider Electric’s Power Consultancy offer.
