Electrical Testing – Periodic inspections of the wiring – EICR
To comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 all employers and landlords are required to maintain electrical systems to prevent danger where it may exist, as their duty of care. Electrical testing can cover a multitude of options including testing the mains wiring, and the appliances.
The only way to ensuring your duties are performed and adequate records are kept is by carrying out a Periodic Electrical Test and Inspection in accordance with BS7671 (The IEE Wiring Regulations)
If you follow this practice you can be sure your obligations have been met under the Health and Safety at Work Act so far as electrical safety is concerned, and more importantly that your staff, other users, buildings and possessions are safe.
Having regular tests professionally undertaken means that your insurance company should pay out in the event of a claim arising from an electrical fault or fire.
In addition to getting the fixed wiring tested you should also get portable appliances PAT tested too, as an additional safety measure.
What we do:
Our NICEIC approved electrical inspector is an experienced professional in providing safe and efficient fixed wire testing that meets all statutory requirements.
As electrical safety providers, we offer our services throughout the north east, meaning one account and one point of contact regardless of the number of sites or jobs conducted.
We can carry out a free initial survey of your electrical installation to enable us to compile a bespoke, cost-effective testing package and quotation to ensure full compliance with The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and all current health and safety requirements.
Alternatively we can provide you with a price based on the information you provide us with in the contact form below.
Following the inspection, an NICEIC computer-generated Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is produced, detailing (if found) any items of non-compliance requiring attention.
We can (if requested) produce a quotation for defect rectification, or a third party or in-house maintenance operative can attend to this work.
All fixed wiring installation testing is carried out by an NICEIC registered contractor.
Baffled about circuits?
In order to give you a quote we need to know what the job entails; we need to know how many fuse boards there are and how many circuits are included. Rather than us explaining all that, the easiest thing to do is take a photograph of each fuse board (aka consumer unit) on the premises and send us the photo by email.
Please note: We only do business premises; we don’t do fixed wiring for private property, except those for landlords.
Please note: This work is carried out by an NICEIC registered electrician working for us as a sub-contractor. We have used him for many years. We are not registered with the NICEIC ourselves
