Tree Building Services Ltd is a certified company fulfilling obligations to various industry authorities and works in accordance with the Electricity at Work Regulations Act 1989, which states that, by law, precautions must be taken to protect against the risk of death or personal injury from faulty electrical work carried out on-site. Custodial sentences are fast-increasing for directors of companies found to be in breach of their obligations so make sure to maintain an up-to-date record of the condition of your electrical systems.
New guidelines are leading organisations to undertake Fixed-Wire Testing and a move towards the implementation of full visual inspections on an annual basis is being made coupled to a 20% physical test of the wiring annually.
Overall costs can be reduced with the annual inspection and the physical test being carried out at the same time along with additional services such as portable-appliance testing. Annual inspections will be carried out yearly building up to a full set of results over the 5-year period.
