1. sAfEtY instrUCtions
 WArninG! It is the responsibility of the owner and the operator to read, understand and comply with the following:
You must check all electrical products, before use, to ensure that they are safe. You must inspect power cables, plugs, sockets and any other con-
nectors for wear or damage. You must ensure that the risk of electric shock is minimised by the installation of appropriate safety devices. A
residual current circuit Breaker (rccB) should be incorporated in the main distribution board. We also recommend that a residual current
device (rcd) is used. It is particularly important to use an rcd with portable products that are plugged into a supply which is not protected by
an rccB. If in any doubt consult a qualified electrician. You may obtain a residual current device by contacting your sealey dealer.
You must also read and understand the following instructions concerning electrical safety.
1.1.1. the Electricity at Work Act 1989 requires all portable electrical appliances, if used on business premises, to be tested by a qualified
electrician, using a Portable Appliance tester (PAt), at least once a year.
1.1.2. the health & safety at Work Act 1974 makes owners of electrical appliances responsible for the safe condition of those appliances
and the safety of the appliance operators. if in any doubt about electrical safety, contact a qualified electrician.
1.1.3. ensure that the insulation on all cables and on the appliance is safe before connecting it to the power supply. see 1.1.1. and 1.1.2. and
use a Portable Appliance tester.
1.1.4. ensure that cables are always protected against short circuit and overload.
1.1.5. regularly inspect power supply cables and plugs for wear or damage and check all
connections to ensure that none is loose.
1.1.6. important: ensure that the voltage marked on the appliance matches the power supply
to be used and that the plug is fitted with the correct fuse - see fuse rating at right.
1.1.7. do not pull or carry the appliance by the power cable.
1.1.8. do not pull the plug from the socket by the cable.
1.1.9. do not use worn or damaged cables, plugs or connectors. Immediately have any faulty
item repaired or replaced by a qualified electrician. When an AstA/Bs approved uK
3 pin plug is damaged, cut the cable just above the plug and dispose of the plug safely.
fit a new plug according to the following instructions (uK only).
a) Connect the GrEEn/YELLoW earth wire to the earth terminal 'E'.
b) Connect the BroWn live wire to the live terminal 'L'.
c) Connect the BLUE neutral wire to the neutral terminal 'n'.
d) After wiring, check that there are no bare wires, that all wires have been correctly
connected, that the cable outer insulation extends beyond the cable restraint and that the restraint is tight.
double insulated products, which are always marked with this symbol
to rewire, connect the wires as indicated above - do not connect either wire to the earth terminal.
1.1.10. If an extension reel is used it should be fully unwound before connection. A reel with an rcd fitted is preferred since any appliance
plugged into it will be protected. the cable core section is important and should be at least 2.5m².
