We provide 6 different types of electrical testing certificates, both domestic and commercial.
Electrical Installation Condition Report
An EICR highlights problems and potential problems on a property. Landlords are liable for any damage or injury caused by faulty equipment. EICRs are also a statutory requirement so it is vital that you have your equipment checked out by a professional once every five years at least. An EICR is also required for commercial properties and any property that the public can access.
Fire Detection and Alarm System Modification Certificates
Fire is a serious risk that can devastate a domestic or commercial property in a matter of minutes. It’s vital that you ensure properties are not just safe but are also fitted with the necessary fire safety equipment. Fire regulations in the UK require that risk assessments are carried out regularly. These assessments need to be done by a qualified professional who is able to carry out the correct risk assessment and issue a fire alarm certificate, or offer advice on necessary changes. Regular Electrical Testing is therefore recommended for every home or business owner.
Portable Appliances Testing
Electricity may be a necessity but that doesn’t make it any less dangerous. In order to avoid accidents caused by electrical faults the government came up with a set of rules and regulations that must be followed. PAT testing is a requirement in Cambridge that should be done to make sure that everything is running safely and efficiently. PAT is short for Portable Appliances Testing.
Emergency Lighting Completion Certificate
You may also need emergency lighting in your business. Once emergency lighting is installed you also need an emergency lighting completion certificate to show the relevant authorities in the future. You also need to update your license should you make any changes to your existing emergency lighting system.
Fire Detection and Alarm System Inspection and Servicing Reports
It’s a requirement that every building has proper fire detection and alarm systems that can promptly alert employees to any fire hazards. This is vital to protect not just your business but also your workforce. Systems have to be checked on a regular basis to ensure that there are no faults that can lead to potentially disastrous problems.
Emergency Lighting Periodic Inspection Reports
An inspection of your emergency lighting needs to be carried out on a regular basis. They should be performed at least once every three years. You also need to have an inspection report done every time you make changes to your emergency lighting system. You may also have to perform an ad hoc report at any time.
