Electrical Safety Inspections

A message from our Health and Safety/Estates Department to all new students:


Electrical Safety

The College offers students a free visual electrical safety inspection on all portable electrical appliances and plug adaptors that you bring to use at College.  This is a mandatory requirement and all students must attend.

Plugs and plug adaptors must be British Standard.  If not, you will not be able to use these on the College site.  British Standard leads and adaptors will be available to purchase at the Porters’ Lodge.

Please bring all electrical appliances, plug adaptors and leads (leads only for laptops, iPads and printers, and no need to bring brand new items).

Please print  (or collect from the relevant Tutorial Office) and complete the form below and bring it along with you on the day.
