FIXED WIRE TESTING (EICR)
Why Fixed Wire Testing?
The Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989 place a “duty of care” on employers and landlords to properly maintain electrical circuits as well as all electrical equipment.
Fixed Wire Testing is a crucial element of preventative maintenance for any business, wires can deteriorate over time and very quickly become unsafe and non compliant. Defined as the reporting and inspection of electrical systems within a workplace or premises, Fixed Wire Testing helps ensure safety, as well as making sure that electrical wiring is compliant with current regulations.
What does Fixed Wire Testing involve?
After an initial visual inspection, All fixed circuits must be tested. This includes the integrity and functionality of cables, accessories and devices, as well as any lighting, socket outlets, air conditioning, or any other fixed plant and/or equipment. During Fixed Wire Testing there is often a requirement for parts of the installation to be isolated for periods of time. With this in mind, you may wish to consider arranging for testing to take place outside of normal working hours, this to ensure minimal disruption to employees, customers or any guests present at your premises.
