I would like to thank the many college lecturers who responded to the questionnaire from Elsevier the publishers, regarding the proposed new edition of this Basic Electrical Installation Work by Trevor Linsley book.
Their recommendations have been taken into account in producing this improved 6th Edition. I would also like to thank the editorial and production staff at Elsevier the publishers for their enthusiasm and support.
They were able to publish this 6th Edition within the very short timescale created by the publication of the new 2357 City and Guilds syllabus. Finally, I would like to thank Joyce, Samantha and Victoria for their support and encouragement.
Safety regulations and laws
At the beginning of the nineteenth century children formed a large part of the working population of Great Britain.
They started work early in their lives and they worked long hours for unscrupulous employers or masters (Basic Electrical Installation Work by Trevor Linsley).
The Health and Morals of Apprentices Act of 1802 was introduced by Robert Peel in an attempt at reducing apprentice working hours to 12 h per day and improving the conditions of their employment.
The Factories Act of 1833 restricted the working week for children aged 13–18 years to 69 h in any working week.
With the introduction of the Factories Act of 1833, the fi rst four full time Factory Inspectors were appointed (Basic Electrical Installation Work by Trevor Linsley).
They were allowed to employ a small number of assistants and were given the responsibility of inspecting factories throughout England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
This small overworked band of men were the forerunners of the modern HSE Inspectorate, enforcing the safety laws passed by Parliament.
