Electrical safety guidance for low voltage systems

Health technical memorandum HTM 06-02


This document covers the safe systems of work and safety procedures for the operation and management of low voltage (up to 1,000v a.c.) electrical installations in healthcare premises. It is

supported by safety control documents and a concise safety handbook for issue to all competent persons (LV) engaged on the 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.
