Call us on 07377 519 529 to arrange your electrical testing.

Why electrical installation tests are required

Testing on electrical installations is required to determine whether or not the installation or appliance is safe for use. Electrical testing and inspection provides an insight into the design, condition, and operation of each installation. For the electrical tests and inspections we undertake, digital documentation is sent before leaving the property.

Fixed wire testing

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 places a duty of care on employers to maintain fixed wired electrical systems to prevent danger where it may otherwise exist. The benchmark for the Fixed Installation Testing process is BS 7671:2018 Guidance Note 3 (The IEE Wiring Regulations) which provides guidance on how systems must be designed, installed, and maintained.

PAT testing

Employers in the UK have a duty of care to their employees and customers. Undergoing regular PAT testing and complying with the Electricity at Work regulations can help employees to meet this obligation. Insurance companies cannot dispute claims for damage through fire because of insufficient electrical maintenance. The ISO 9000 Quality Assurance Standard requires all companies to comply with the Health and Safety requirements.
