The Electricity (Factories Act) Special Regulations 1908 & 1944
Have been replaced by:

The Electricity At Work Regulations (1989)

These came into force on 1st. April 1990

If they believe the regulations are not being complied with inspectors are authorised to issue a prohibition notice with immediate effect. This would prevent any further work from taking place on the site. An improvement notice would be issued, and if the requirements of this were not complied with then the case would become the subject of a prosecution.

Maximum penalties of fines up to £5000 and/or up to six months imprisonment are in the event of a successful prosecution under any Health & Safety statute.

The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 has allowed for penalties up to £20,000 fines since 1992

Offences heard by the Crown Courts have unlimited fines with a possible two year prison sentence.
