Inspections on boilers and other electrical equipment can help to decrease the risks to health and safety posed by faulty equipment.

When the £115,000 biomass boiler broke down on Christmas day at the Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary, zookeepers were left with the unusual task of heating a troop of chilly monkeys. With the risk of the animals contracting flu or pneumonia looming, the quick-thinking zookeepers wrapped the haplorhine primates in blankets while they waited for the boiler issue to be resolved.
As well as blankets, zoo bosses also allowed the furry creatures to indulge in jacket potatoes and a few cups of tea.
Engineers eventually located the problem which fixed the boiler, but in the meantime these simple solutions kept the monkeys nice and toasty.
