Commercial Testing

All non-domestic electrical installations should be subject to a regular programme of testing and inspection to comply with current legislation. You must ensure that all necessary precautions are being taken to reduce the risk of injury through electrical failure.

Periodic inspection and testing should be considered if it is required by a governing body or particular directive (ie Licensing authorities, insurance companies, Landlords etc)

There are many good reasons for adopting periodic testing. You may need to inspect and test to comply with the IEE Wiring Regulations 17th Edition. Or if you have recently acquired ownership or tenancy of business/workplace premises you may wish to ensure the installation is safe. If you suspect there is a fault or risk of failure, you must take steps to inspect the affected circuits urgently.

Fixed Wire Testing

A Fixed wire test involves the testing and inspection of each individual circuit in an electrical installation/system. The reason for this is to determine the safety of the installation and to reduce the chances of electrical shock to persons or livestock.

It is a mandatory requirement of the “Electricity At Work Regulations 1989”. A series of tests is carried out to each individual circuit, sub-main and the equipment used in the installation. The visual and Infra Red inspection is important to establish many things such as exposed dangerous wires and overheating of equipment/ circuits.

Tests should be carried out no less that once every five years, with a yearly visual or Infra Red inspection.
