ESQCR 2009 PDF

Working with electricity is a dangerous business. Electrical work takes place in all sectors of the economy, so there are many people working on or near electricity in their daily routines. But how dangerous is working with electricity? These figures are shocking enough, but they are likely to be underestimates as they include only those incidents reported. One of the main hazards of working with electricity is electric shock when a person comes into contact with equipment that is live. The injuries from the electric shock itself can be compounded by burn injuries.

The aim of this topic is to explain the requirements of BS , Part M of the Building Regulations for England and Wales and BS Design of buildings and their approaches to meet the needs of disabled people relating to the mounting heights of equipment in dwellings.

Part M of the Building Regulations, which applies in England and Wales, requires reasonable provision to be made for people to gain access to, and use a building and its facilities. Section 1. BS is a Code of Practice which includes recommendations on the mounting heights of electrical equipment to meet the needs of disabled people.

The recommendations apply to the design of new buildings and for assessing the accessibility and usability of existing buildings and their improvements, although they do not apply to dwellings or residential buildings designed exclusively for use by disabled people. The upper and lower limits of mounting height given in BS are reproduced in Table 1.

Some of the heights in Table 1 fall outside the mm maximum and mm minimum mounting heights. In such cases, it may be advisable to select mounting heights that meet the recommendations of both Table 1 and Approved Document M. To enable access by wheelchair users, outlets, switches and controls should be at least mm from room corners.

As far as equipment belonging to the electricity distributor is concerned, the Electricity Safety, Quality and Continuity Regulations ESQCR requires the distributor to install and, so far as is reasonably practicable, maintain the equipment to prevent danger Regulation 24 of the ESQCR refers.

To reduce the effects of splashing, socket-outlets and similar accessories, as a rule of thumb, should be mounted at not less than mm ideally not less than mm in the horizontal plane, from the extremities of a sink, tap or wash basin.
