    7/8kw Xenons. Now there's a big bang for you! Full welding style safety mask, heavy gauntlet gloves, some places even insisted on a chest plate too. You try to then actually change the bulb wearing that lot!!!

    I hope you are going to update your risk assessment?
    You'll need to wear full PPE when changing a lamp

    i had a couple of MR16's explode on me. just happened that the pub landlord had removed the faulty ones and taken the transformers out with them. MR16's don't like 240V up'em.
