Pet Food Manufacturer ‘Making a dog’s dinner’ out of their Electrical Compliance

At Protest ES Ltd we are proud to partner with a wide range of food manufacturing clients throughout the UK. These sites can vary in size from small family-owned businesses all the way through to the most famous food manufacturers in the UK. It is imperative that these sites and their production lines are kept running at all times and they are kept electrically safe and without risk.


We provide our clients with a wide range of electrical testing compliance services which are carried out by our multi skilled engineers who are directly employed and DBS checked as standard.


In our experience, if we can carry out more than one service in the same visit then this can save the client a vast amount of money and time, as it gives far less disruption to their normal working routines. This is especially important within the food manufacturing sector where production deadlines are vital and cannot be interrupted.


The situations pictured were found in one of the largest manufacturing sites for one of the UK’s most well known pet food manufacturers.



On the left, you can see this live working distribution board which was at head height without a front cover on it, and was easily accessible by members of staff. This picture below speaks for itself and is a serious issue due to the exposed, live wires.






Our engineers were carrying out several electrical compliance services within the same visit and this consisted of EICR Fixed Wire testing, PAT Testing, Thermal Imaging and Emergency Lighting Testing. The Cat 1 issues found meant there was an immediate risk of electrical shock or fire.


Our site contact was made aware of the issues straight away and our engineers made them all safe. Remedial quotations were provided immediately to the client to make the repairs and we are pleased to say that the client placed orders with us straight away and the repairs were carried out within 48 hours of the orders being received.
