New Electrical Test Code of Practice for Portable Sanitation and Welfare Units

If your company are in the rental business supplying portable & temporary welfare units then this will be of interest.

If you or your company are in the rental business of supplying portable and temporary welfare units or perhaps you hire portable units then this will be of interest to you. A new code of practice on electrical testing has been developed to ensure that hirers of portable and temporary welfare units meet their safety responsibilities.

The new document has been introduced by Portable Sanitation Europe (PSE) the trade association representing the interests of members involved in the hire and rental of on-site welfare units, in association with electrical safety testing specialist, Seaward.

Portable Sanitation Europe (PSE) was originally conceived as a trade association to represent the interests of a small number of fledgling portable toilet rental companies in 1992. Today the Association is managed by a Committee of Members dedicated to the improvement of working and social standards within the field of portable and mobile sanitation.

Established over 30 years ago, Seaward Electronic based in Co. Durham, England is the market leader in the field of electrical safety test instrumentation.

The new guide pays particular attention to the safety needs associated with hot wash units, welfare units and luxury trailer units. The code of practice provides an overview of the safety measures required for hire units that incorporate electrical accessories and appliances, along with the procedures for inspection, testing and maintenance during both pre and post hire periods.

Details of the new Code of Practice for electrical safety testing of PS units are available from the PSE via or from
