Insurance companies would also look favourably on any claims that you make, if your 
business has a regular and professional electrical safety management procedure in place.
Many businesses are unaware of the insurance implications when it comes to regular portable appliance testing. Insurance companies assume that when giving cover to a business, the owners of that business are complying with all necessary obligations and regulations. An insurance company may reduce, delay or even refuse to pay on a claim for damage if an appliance, that has not been inspected and tested, has caused the problem.  

Each year over 1,000 accidents at work involving electric shocks and fire related incidents are reported to the Health and Safety Executive. Some of these are fatal. Those using electricity may not be the only ones at risk as poor electrical installations and faulty electrical appliances can lead to fires, which may cause death or injury to others.  When the HSE or risk/fire assessors visit premises they will ask to see what steps you have taken to keep an electrical safety program in place.  If a regular Pat Testing/EICr (Fixed Wire) procedure is not in place they will strongly advise you to take the necessary steps to do so.

regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment.
