PAT Testing

PAT Testing is the inspection and testing of all electrical equipment that is used in the workplace. Every electrical item that has a plug attached is required to be tested, for example printers, computers, kettles, fridges, extension leads as well as many other items.

Every business in the UK has a legal requirement to ensure that all electrical equipment is safe to use by its staff and it is also a requirement of many major insurance companies.

Electrical Report (EICR)

An electrical report or periodic inspection report (PIR) is the inspection and testing of circuits contained within the fabric of a building. This includes the socket outlets, lighting circuits etc

Important Reasons For Testing:

  • Requirement of your insurance company
  • To ensure compliance with BS7671 IEE Wiring Regulations
  • On change of occupancy of rental accommodation (Landlord’s Certificates).
  • Where damage has been caused to a property that may affect the integrity of the installation through fire and/or water damage etc.

On completion you will receive a full report on the condition of the electrical installation that will highlight any faults that may exist. If required a price for rectification can be supplied.

Emergency Lighting Testing

Emergency lights are generally installed in commercial and industrial environments and need to provide illumination of exit routes in the event of mains failure from fire etc.

Important Reasons For Testing:

  • To ensure battery back up automatically operates for between 1 and 3 hours (i.e. correct duration)
  • Insufficient emergency lighting in a fire condition could lead to staff being trapped within the building
  • Possible injury due to insufficient illumination following mains failure

Following completion of testing all relevant certification will be supplied including log books if not already on site.

Fire Alarm Testing

Fire alarm testing is a requirement under BS5839 Part 1 and is essential to have a regular test performed and documented to ensure your alarm system works correctly.

If your alarm fails to operate following a fire you could be liable to prosecution if the required service documentation is not available.
A fire alarm testing package can be tailored to suit your requirements.
