Electricians – are you aware of the new Health and Safety changes?

A new Health and Safety law that affects all domestic electricians came into force from the 6th April. Replacing the the Construction, Design and Management Regulations 2007, the new Regulations are designed to improve health and safety and reduce accidents during building projects.
The new Regulations are known as Construction, (Design and Management) (CDM) Regulations 2015. Building firms need to review their current health and safety processes to ensure they are compliant with the new law.
