Electrical safety tests near Frimley (GU15): Are you compliant?
If you are a business or landlord, keeping track of the frequency of electrical testing is essential, along with any remedial works. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 places a duty of care on employers and landlords to maintain electrical installations and to prevent danger to users. It will also ensure there is no confusion when it comes to your insurance.
All electrical installations degrade due to general wear and tear, corrosion and environmental factors. Our commercial condition reports or Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs) are hassle-free and tailored to suit your individual requirements where possible. This will also ensure that your obligations have been carried in in relation to the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
We understand that business interruptions can be costly, which is why we always aim to be as flexible and helpful as possible. We can carry out testing out of hours on any circuits normally in use through the working week. We are fully conversant with all paperwork requirements, and our engineers hold health and safety at the heart of all their work.
Depending on the type of business or establishment, frequency of electrical safety audits can vary. These include:
- Commercial and retail buildings every five years
- Educational facilities, including schools and colleges every five years
- Leisure facilities, such as theatres, every three years
- Private or commercial rental properties every five years or with each change of tenancy
- Construction sites every six months
- Industrial buildings every three years
Following inspections, our EICR report is produced detailing any non-compliances if they are found. The overall outcome will establish the overall condition of the electrics, like a MOT for a car or other motor vehicle. If requested, we can give you a quotation to correct any issues.
