With these statistics, you can easily see why it is imperative to get your fixed wiring tested on a regular basis. Each premise has different requirements in terms of electrical testing and there are many factors that define how frequent you get the wiring tested, such as:
- Age of wiring/equipment
- What type of equipment is being powered
- Environment the wiring is installed within
Don’t take any risks with your electrical wiring; make sure that you have it tested as frequently as is required.
With Caztec, you can talk to one of our friendly electricians who will visit your premises and inspect your electrical wiring.
We will then be able to make recommendations on how often you will require testing to take place, dependent on your specific equipment/environment.
If you would like, we can draw up a schedule for future testing so that you never miss the recommended testing dates. We will also be happy to conduct your tests for you on a regular basis in the future, as we will be familiar with your testing requirements.
The Health and Safety Executive recommends that “checks should take place often enough to ensure there is little chance the equipment will become unsafe between checks”.
They also advise that it is best practice to “have electrical equipment tested by a person with specific competence on that type of equipment”.
