One of the most common causes of workplace fires is electrical faults, including defective wiring, overloaded sockets and faulty equipment. So much like a car MOT it is important for you to maintain your electrical installation to ensure the safety, health and welfare for all persons using the building.
An EICR will:
An EICR assesses the current in-service condition of an electrical installation against the British Standards required at the time of the inspection, irrespective of the age of the installation. An EICR is not a certificate, but a legally-recognised report which is required to ensure compliance with current workplace regulations and to validate business insurance schemes. Certification is provided following the repairs of any urgent or potentially dangerous defects identified following the inspection.
Every electrical installation deteriorates with use and time. Therefore, it is important that every installation is periodically inspected and tested by a competent person in accordance with the regulations, to make sure users are not put at risk.
Most commercial premises, hold an inspection once every five years, however the age and condition of the installation, the use of building, insurance request, change of owner/occupier must all be taken into consideration, and will impact inspection frequency.
Yes. The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 places responsibility on employers to ensure the health, safety and welfare of everyone in the workplace, including visitors, contractors, members of the public and employees.
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 states: “all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger.”
This explicitly places a requirement on the employer to maintain electrical systems adequately to protect employees, visitors and other users of the building. Commercial insurers require evidence of compliance in the form of an EICR completed by an approved contractor.
At Greenlite Group we work with you to minimise any chance of disruption to business trading. We are available on evenings or weekends should isolation to essential circuits be unavoidable.
In most cases the answer is no, unless visible damage is present on the equipment. This equipment is suitable for continual use providing no deterioration or damage is present following the periodic inspection (EICR).
Our engineers have undergone specific training to inspect this type of equipment to ensure safety at all times and meeting the requirements of the HSE.
Insurance providers request electrical contractors to be approved under a regulatory body, here at Greenlite Group we are approved contractors by the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NIC EIC)
