Whenever it comes to electrical wiring, the main hazard everyone is aware of is electric shock.
But people generally overlook many more hazards, ranging from skin burns to ignition of flammable materials if present.
Health and safety in the workplace regarding electricity should be taken seriously.
Fixed Wire Testing is a test to help prevent these types of hazards from occurring.
You are thoroughly testing all components of your electrical system to identify possible/direct faults.
Regular fixed wire testing could prevent future problems, significantly reducing the risk of harm to people and any financial loss if an incident happened.
Our NIC EIC engineers can work around your schedule aimed to minimise any disruption to your business.
Any limitations can be agreed upon by yourself before the visit.
The periodic testing level is down to you; we operate a 100% test once every five years or a 20% a year test for five years.
Our test includes
- Visual examination of the condition of electrical equipment, switches, sockets, fittings etc
- Condition and testing of Distribution boards and circuits
- Polarity testing
- Earth testing
- Isolation and switching (emergency Switching/stopping)
- Observations and Recommendations
- Date Tested labels
Fault codes are given to items that are not up to standard and require attention.
The fault codes are C1, C2 and C3. C1 requires urgent attention and is dangerous.
C2 is for an unsatisfactory condition; the potential danger is present.
C3 is for improvements we recommend. Our electrician will advise on the next step if these faults occur.
Once the test has been completed, an Electrical Inspection Condition Report (EICR) provided for your records. The report is fully compliant with Health and Safety regulations.
