Quick, Efficient & Cost Effective

The Electricity at Work Regulations (EAWR) 1989 are made under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and require that employers as ‘duty holders’ must provide a safe working environment with regard to any electrical installation or system, regardless of when they were manufactured, installed or brought into use.

Once we have completed the electrical testing and a periodic inspection report, also known as an EICR, has been produced, it may include some remedial work that may be required for your electrical installation to remain compliant.

Full Regulation Compliance As Standard

To comply with fixed wire testing regulations, companies have several duties and obligations. They must ensure that all systems are maintained in a safe condition. Periodic inspections and fixed wire testing are important parts of this maintenance. Additionally, companies must ensure that their employees are aware of the electrical safety regulations and are properly trained in how to safely work with electrical equipment.

Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)

An Electrical Installation Condition Report, or EICR, is a document that is compiled by a qualified electrician to identify any faults or potential hazards with a building’s electrical system or fixed electrical appliances as a result of a periodic electrical inspection and testing.

It is an important document and a legal requirement for businesses in the UK as it can help identify any electrical issues that may need to be addressed with an electrical installation to ensure safety. The report should be updated regularly, particularly if there are any changes to the electrical installations or electrical equipment.
