Electric Installation Condition Reporting (EICR) is a visual and electrical inspection of the installation and accessories within your premises.
This periodic inspection is carried out to identify the condition of an electrical installation. It highlights any observations and recommendations relevant for any subsequent remedial work.
Time, daily use and breakages can all contribute to non-compliance. An electrical installation may not look faulty, but only a full inspection can determine its condition.
The inspection includes full management of scheduling and reminders to guarantee as little disruption as possible to your business. The scope of the inspection and limitations of the report are agreed with the client to ensure minimum disruption to normal business operations. Furthermore, a regular EICR and completion of remedial works will make your work environment safer and help prevent unexpected reactive maintenance issues in the future.
An essential element of electrical compliance is emergency lighting inspection and testing.
Emergency lighting should illuminate escape routes and exits for a minimum duration to ensure safe exit from the buildings by the occupants in case of emergency or drill.
As a business owner, you will understand the importance of risk assessments and procedures for staff and visitors to follow in case of an emergency.
How often should your fire alarm be tested?
Once a week by the person responsible according to the British Standard Regulations.
While everyday maintenance is essential, full servicing is too. Book an inspection for every 6 months as part of your electrical compliance routine.
