It is supported by safety control and record documents and a concise safety handbook for issue to all authorised persons (HV) engaged on the HV electrical systems
Engineering Health Technical Memoranda (HTMs) give comprehensive advice and guidance on the design, installation and operation of specialised building and engineering technology used in the delivery of healthcare.
The focus of HTM guidance remains on healthcare specific elements of standards, policies and up-to-date established best practice. They are applicable to new and existing sites, and are for use at various stages during the whole building lifecycle.
Guidance is intended to assist Duty Holders to meet the requirements of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (“the Regulations”), which are made under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (HSW Act 1974). It is not an authoritative interpretation of the regulations or other laws. Only the courts can make such interpretation.
