Hello Folks,

New around here and as usual it was a problem that brought me this way. The company I work for integrates robots into production lines and the work involves us in testing in Live panels. Some of the panels may only be small, say 600mm x 600mm but other can be large free standing cabinets which we can stand inside.

I have read the HSE guide to electrical testing and am trying to set up a safe method of work and risk assessment, has anyone on here got previous experience of this sort of thing?

Many thanks,

Chris.
