I would like to engage with people on what they are doing and frequency of physical inspections on low voltage power distribution boards. The trend is to move to non-intrusive such as thermal imaging etc. However, these are deemed more secondary inspections and supplementary in nature. HSG 230 and G3 guidance point to intrusive physical inspections still required. So the questions I have and need feedback on are the following please:
1. What level of physical inspections and frequency are workplaces undertaken at present? Or not?
2. Thermal imaging positive and negative outcomes and justification to reduce physical inspections?
Peoples insights would be helpful
