In today’s Built Environment projects, during the construction stage and after completion of which, architects and engineers will be confronted with a number of special locations where there will be a significant increase of risk of electric shock or fire.

For example, in locations containing swimming pools these particular requirements demand different IP codes for equipment and accessories and supplementary bonding is required within the restricted zones. Socket-outlets, other than SELV socket-outlets or shaver supply units complying with BS EN 60742 Chapter 2, Section 1, are not allowed in designated zones.

The IET's Built Environment Technologies Network (BETNET) have invited a group of eminent speakers to present the basic concepts and give their views on how these changes to the Wiring Regulations will impact their particular area. The Health & Safety Executive will discuss the relationship between The Wiring Regulations (BS 7671) and The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and outline case studies of electrical accidents concerned with electrical installations
