Electrical Compliance

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 places a ‘duty of care' on employers and landlords to maintain electrical systems to prevent any danger The most efficient and comprehensive way of ensuring these duties are performed, and adequate records are kept, is by performing Periodic Electrical Test and Inspection in accordance with BS7671:2008 (The IEE Wiring Regulations) and Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) in accordance with the IEE Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment.

By following the guidelines within this legislation will ensure that the client can prove their obligations have been met under the Health and Safety at Work Act so far as electrical safety is concerned, and more importantly that anyone coming in contact with those assets remains safe.

FET (Fixed Electrical Testing) & PAT (Portable Appliance Testing) requires a series of visual inspections and electronic tests to be performed, in order to establish the safety and suitability of the electrical system or portable equipment. This type of work does require the main supply to be isolated or the portable item to be removed from service therefore, with careful planning this work can be done at a more convenient time such as overnight or weekends.
