Electrical Testing in Nottingham

Keeping on top of electrical testing and inspecting is the only way to understand the true condition of your buildings electrical system and appliances. Ensuring appropriate practices are in place for staying on top of health and safety laws is vital in your Nottingham building. Types of electrical testing which are important to implement for landlords and commercial settings include:

Fixed Wire Testing

An EICR, (Electrical Installation Condition Report), is an inspection carried out by a qualified professional who performs a visual and physical inspection into the electrical system of a building. This includes testing the wiring, circuits and fittings. After the initial inspection a detailed report will be handed to the owner explaining if there are any dangers present. If there are any failings found, then these must be fixed within a set period of time. By law an EICR must be performed at least once every 5 years. 

PAT Testing

PAT testing, (Portable Appliance Testing), is an inspection carried out to check the integrity of plugged in and portable appliances within a property or workplace. This can include fridges, cookers, computers and other electrical devices. The importance of PAT testing is to eliminate the use of faulty equipment which could become a danger within the building. PAT testing is not a legal requirement; however, it is recommended to be carried out annually to prevent any electrical hazards. There are still laws stating a business owner is responsibly for the safety around electrical equipment in the workplace and PAT testing is an expected industry standard. 

Fire Alarms and Emergency Lighting

In the event of an electrical emergency, it is important that there are certain safety features in place to alert anyone within the premises. This includes fire alarms and emergency lighting. On top of safe installation of these life saving devices, they should be regularly inspected and tested to ensure they are fully functioning in the event of crisis.
