Our electrical safety testing and inspection service offers fully qualified and competent staff for both testing and remedial services. Our electrical experts can help you determine what tests you require and advise you of the recommended test frequency. Every electrical Installation has a regular ‘Electrical Installation Condition Report’ to ensure there are no faults with the electrics.
Neglecting faulty electrical equipment and your building’s fixed wiring could result in injury, damage to your building, lost income and fines if found in breach of your statutory legal responsibilities.

The Electricity at Work Regulations state all electrical systems and equipment used in the work area should be in a safe condition. This means that the testing and inspection schedule must be im
plemented at all workplaces. The frequency of the inspection depends on the type of installation and what it is being used for, this varies between 3 months and 10 years.
Electrical testing will require the main supply to be isolated and with careful planning can be done with little disruption to your business. This work can even be carried out whilst your workplace is empty, such as nights, weekends or holiday periods.
On completion of the test we will provide you with a Electrical Installation Condition Report accredited by the NICEIC on the fixed installation for your organization. This report will detail the status of your installation along with any remedial work necessary to bring it back into a safe condition.
Types of work
Our qualified engineers, in accordance with the British Standard and the NICEIC, will list any faults in the electrical installation condition report and code them 1-3 in order of severity as follows
- Code 1 – ‘Danger Present’ – Immediate remedial action is required
- Code 2 – ‘Potentially Dangerous’ – Urgent remedial action is required
- Code 3 – Improvement Recommended
It is the code 1 and code 2 observations that attention must be paid to in order to attain a satisfactory electrical system. A full recommendations report including photographs will be issued along with advice based on these findings, the next stage is to carry out such repairs.
After completing the repair programme successfully, we will document the processes involved and the repairs made in order to satisfy regulations and standards. This information will be provided to the client in the form of a “completion”, or “minor works” certificate. This final documentation should be kept safely alongside the original fixed installation test and inspection report as evidence of total compliance.
