Need an EV Charging Point Installation? - Electric Vehicle Charging Point Installation
Electric Vehicle Charging Point (Testing)
Also known as Electric Vehicle Charge Points, after installation it will require routine EICR testing, this to ensure that business premises are appropriately managing their safety and legal obligations.
Why you need your EV charging point EICR testing
Protest ES Ltd can manage and assist you with EICR periodic Inspection and the Testing of Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points.
As we start to see more and more electric vehicles on our UK roads, this means that there are now more EV charging points in use. This number will only increase substantially with time as many households and businesses try to improve on their carbon footprint by switching to the more energy efficient and environmentally friendly electric vehicles.
Businesses more than ever are seeing a huge rise in the demand for EV charging points at their premises, therefore they are installing EV charging points at an incredible rate. These charging points need to be periodically electrically tested (EICR) and visually inspected to ensure that they comply with the latest government guidelines and that they are safe and fit for purpose.
Much like any type of electrical installation, as a duty holder you are required to ensure the safety of the EV charging point(s) under the guidelines of EAWR (Electricity at Work Regulations 1989).
This also involves the maintenance of all electrical systems to protect and prevent any possible safety risk and electrical related incident or fire hazard caused by an electrical fault to any members of staff or visitors.
Environmental impacts on EV charging points
EV charging points throughout the world and the UK are becoming a very highly used apparatus, therefore they endure a lot of wear and tear.
This coupled with the fact that the majority of EV charging points are installed for outdoor use and therefore exposed to the elements too.
This is why as a business we strongly recommend formal periodic inspecting and testing on an annual basis, as well as regular monitoring of the EV systems to help your business and duty holders, meet their legal requirements with regards to maintenance and health and safety of this high functioning equipment.
