MIKE FRAIN OF ELECTRICAL SAFETY UK, EXAMINES LIVE WORKING ON LOW VOLTAGE SYSTEMS IN INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL FACILITIES; DETAILING A METHODICAL PROCESS FOR IDENTIFYING THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH LIVE WORKING AND THE METHODS FOR CONTROLLING THEM.

FROM MY EXPERIENCE, I believe Regulation 14 from the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, referring to live working, is often misunderstood and sometimes overlooked.
