Testing Services



By ensuring all aspects of your electrical installation run safely, you can protect your business against potential failures, dangers and compliance issues.

Electrical installation projects, as well as the connecting power supply, are both major hazards. Not only is this due to potentially fatal electrical shocks due to contact, but also the possibility of serious fires and explosions.

All electrical installations deteriorate with age and use and should therefore be inspected and tested at regular intervals to check whether they are in a satisfactory condition for continued use. Such safety checks are commonly referred to as ‘periodic inspection and testing’ and will support you in your bid to become compliant with electrical legislation. This includes the fundamental requirements of the BS 7671 IET Wiring Regulations, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.

Remedial Quotation provided within 5 days of project completion, subject to the size of the project. We will conduct a Thermographic Survey of the distribution board only to identify any unusually high temperatures that may cause risk or concern and produce a thermal image of any item that shows high temperature. A full Thermographic Survey of electrical distribution equipment as defined in the quotation, will verify (as far as is reasonably practicable) your installation shows no signs of overheating or overload. It can be an effective method for identifying potential defects that may not be acknowledged by more conventional visual inspections. It’s an additional tool that can be used without disrupting essential power supply and will produce a full report. Our inspectors will provide at time of test minor remedials as part of the premium package, for example this could include screws, blanks and grommets. The value will be agreed before work commences, and items rectified at time of test will have before and after photos. Your account manager will provide a dedicated point of contact and will review the project with you on a 1-to-1 basis on completion You will be assigned a Dedicated Site Lead Inspector for the duration of the programme to ensure consistency of the project and increase site knowledge, minimising limitations and access issues.
