We provide electrical inspection and testing services for landlords and our partners in UE and Middle East. This ranges from carrying out landlord electrical safety checks and PAT Testing of Landlord appliances to MOD, NATO, Commercial and Industrial Installations
To ensure compliance with legislation and insurance requirements, every commercial property has an obligation to have their electrical installation inspected and tested at regular intervals.
All electrical installations deteriorate from wear and tear over a period of time. Therefore, testing was introduced in 1990 under the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974), to:
Protect the general public from danger
Ensure that all installations are of a good and safe condition
Conform to regulation 4(2) of the Electricity at Work Act (1989)
We will certify that inspection and testing is carried out by City and Guilds 2391 Approved electricians to ensure installations are safe. All electrical work is carried out in compliance with BS7671 with correct reports or certificates issued. These include:
Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC)
Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)
Minor Electrical Installation Works Certificate (MEIWC)
When issued, both the EIC and EICR will be accompanied by a Schedule of Inspections and a Schedule of Test results
Ensuring safety from electric shock, fires and explosions
Electrical inspection and testing identifies deficiencies in an electrical installation before they become serious hazards. Over time, all electrical installations deteriorate due to age, loading, wear and tear, mechanical damage, overheating, environment, poor maintenance, etc. Legislation requires that electrical installations are maintained in a safe condition and therefore must be periodically inspected and tested.
Routine inspections enable the owner to provide a safe place of work for employees and visitors. The main aim is to help you comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, help to reduce dangerous hazards and reduce the company’s risk from litigation.
