Electrical Inspections & Testing

Periodic inspection and testing (landlord's safety certificates)

Although the UK has a fairly good record of electrical safety, there are still over 30 deaths and nearly 4000 injuries from electrical accidents in addition to the 8000 fires that occur in the home each year. Most of the accidents in the home involve faults in, or the misuse of, domestic appliances, flexes, plugs or connections. A large number are related to electrical maintenance or DIY activities. The major dangers to health from electrical accidents are from shock, burns, electrical explosion or arcing, fire, and mechanical movements initiated by electricity.

The causes of such incidents are varied but include:

  • Deterioration of the electrical installation.
  • Broken accessories and equipment.
  • Misuse of the installation and equipment and occasional vandalism.
  • Inconsistent maintenance programs.

Electrical installation condition report is an inspection on the condition of an existing electrical installation, to identify any deficiencies against the National Standard BS 7671, for the safety of electrical installations. It is recommended that the condition reports are carried out every five years for a property that is rented or 10 years if it is owner occupied

Electrical installation condition reports can also be used to reduce insurance costs for landlords, offices and commercial premises.
