Maintaining the safety of a working environment is a requirement of the Electricity at Work Act and so it is important that as a business owner or manager, you periodically test all electrical appliances and systems. There are different periodic testing periods for different types of equipment/systems and so by using Yee Group as your chosen electrical contractor, we can advise you on what’s appropriate for your business or building. EICRs provide insurance companies with proof that you are maintaining your electrical systems and appliances in accordance with regulations, and in the event of a claim, you are seen as having acted responsibly.
Yee Group has a structured and efficient method of carrying out EICRs which includes:
Visual inspection – the electrician will survey the electrical installation before commencing with the electrical testing.
Dead testing – consisting of 4 tests: Continuity testing, insulation resistance testing, polarity and earthing arrangement testing.
Live testing – consisting of 2 tests: Earth fault loop impedance testing; RCD testing
