Why you need Fixed Wire Testing at your premises
Electrical installations, like all infrastructure components, deteriorate and sustain damage in everyday service. Conduits, cabling, seals, sockets and switches are all susceptible to impact damage and wear and tear. Wiring can be disturbed and contacts become loose due to unexpected mechanical strains. Depending on the environment in which you work, corrosive liquids or atmospheric conditions can accelerate the deterioration of both conductors and insulators, or cause wiring to oxidise faster than normal. To minimise risks and ensure your wiring complies with all relevant regulations and obligations, Office Test provides comprehensive Fixed Wire Testing to IEE Wiring Regulations 17th Edition.
What the regulations say
All commercial electrical installations should be inspected and tested regularly to comply with current legislation, and you must take proper precautions to reduce the risk of electrical failure causing injury or death. Since July 2008, IEE Regulations 2008 -17th Edition have brought testing into line with European standards, and Office Test Fixed Wire Testing engineers have all attained qualifications to the new standard.
Under the legislation, periodic inspection must be carried out at intervals not exceeding:
Commercial Installations – 5 years; Industrial Installations – 3 years; Buildings open to the public – 1 year; External Installations – 3 years; Caravan Parks – 1 year; Fire Alarms – 1 year; Short Term Installations – 3 months; Site Installations – 3 months.
In addition to meeting these regulations, you may need to test in order to comply with the requirements of landlords, insurers or, for example, Licensing authorities.
