Case study on safety of electrical equipment in use

Objective of this study was to point out the complex of administrative and technical issues, which, as an integral system, can only ensure that electrical equipment will be safely operated over its technical lifetime. In this sense the study went beyond the problems of placement of products on the market and beyond technical requirements for products.

Important role of manufacturers of measuring and testing instruments was demonstrated. Discussed issues were regulations relevant to the safety of electrical equipment in operation as well as safety of products (technical requirements, testing and measurement, market surveillance), safety of power distribution installations (technical requirements, testing and measurement, inspection) and safety at work (safe operation, training and skill, official examination).

Realized interviews have documented high level of knowledge in the field at different levels of company management (design and production, marketing and sales, testing laboratory, metrological laboratory) and regulatory bodies.
