Almost a year ago, we referred in this blog to the confusion created in the industry by having two separate registers for electricians.

Each year about 1000 accidents at work involving electric shocks or burns are reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Around 30 of these are fatal, most of them arising from contact with overhead or underground power cables.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) abounds in cases of injury, and in some case death, to workers as a result of negligence on the part of employers to ensure adequate safety. Only as recently as November 2013, the HSE fined an employer after an electrician suffered burns to his face, hands and arms while carrying out live electrical testing in December 2010.

Thousands of applications require the use of temperature - and the maintenance of temperature - in order to work correctly. But which of the most common forms of measurement tool is better for quantifying temperature levels?
All electrical systems have a defining factor known as power quality. At the peak of its operation, a newly manufactured machine should have a high level of power quality, ensuring that it works correctly at all times.
