We can set up a programme of regular visits to carry out the testing necessary to keep you compliant with the latest regulations and insurance policy requirements.

Regular safety inspections

To comply with The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and HSE guidelines, all electrical systems must be tested every three months to five years depending on the type of premises.

Electrical installations deteriorate over time due to a number of factors such as damage, wear and tear, corrosion, excessive electrical loading, ageing and environmental influences. As a result, it is necessary to carry out regular inspections and testing to ensure the premises is safe. It also helps to protect against property damage due to fire arising from an installation defect.

Emergency light testing

Emergency lighting needs to operate automatically and give ample light to enable a safe evacuation of the building. To comply with the requirements of Emergency Lighting Regulations BS5266 a professional periodic inspection is required.

We will assess the locations of your lighting to ensure they’re in the best possible position in the event of an incident, as well as checking it is in full working order. We also test all the essential components such as switches, batteries, luminaries and control equipment.

A test for the full rated duration of the emergency lights must be carried out and the results recorded. If failures are detected we can remedy them for you. After testing we will provide you with a certificate detailing our inspection procedures and results.
