Electrical Safety
WARNING! It is the user’s responsibility to check the following:
Check all electrical equipment and appliances to ensure that they are safe before using. Inspect power supply leads, plugs and all
electrical connections for wear and damage. Ensure the risk of electric shock is minimised by the installation of appropriate safety
devices. An RCCB (Residual Current Circuit Breaker) should be incorporated in the main distribution board. We recommend that an
RCD (Residual Current Device) is used with all electrical products. It is particularly important to use an RCD with portable products
that are plugged into a supply not protected by an RCCB. If in doubt consult a qualified electrician. You may obtain an RCD by
contacting your local Sealey dealer. Electrical safety information, it is important that the following information is read and understood.
1.2. The Electricity at Work Act 1989 requires that all portable electrical appliances, if used on business premises, are tested by a
qualified electrician, using a Portable Appliance Tester (PAT), at least once a year.
1.3. The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 makes owners of electrical appliances responsible for the safe condition of those appliances
and the safety of the appliance operators. If in any doubt about electrical safety, contact a qualified electrician.
