The NICEIC have reiterated that it is in fact LAW due to the Electricity at Work Act which refers to BS7671 which is a Statutory Document.
The Landlords by LAW have to adhere to the Electricity at Work Act and The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 regarding their Duty of Care.
A duty of care exists in Law to ensure that employers or members of the public are not placed in a position of unacceptable risk.
A full scheduled programme of periodic and systematic testing should be implemented as per Table 3.2 of Guidance Notes 3.
By Law, Landlords have an Electrical Duty to their tenants. Electrical Safety Inspections are required to ensure that their properties meet current Electrical Safety Regulations
The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 - "The Landlord of a property must keep the Electrical Installation in repair and proper working order"
All of our installation work is fully Tested & Inspected to the latest BS7671 regulations, moreover, we are an NICEIC Certificated Electrical Contractor.
Commercial electrical installations should be periodically tested as a legal requirement, making sure they are maintained to a high standard and safe to use for all of our team members. AJ Electrical advise all clients that a well organised maintenance programme is adhered to in order to prevent the unwanted development of any faults.
A full scheduled programme of periodic and systematic testing should be implemented on a regular basis to safeguard the continued operation of equipment and systems within it.
Commercial insurers reinforce to all electrical companies the importance of safety in the workplace regarding routine testing and inspections.
For the majority of policies, in the rare event of a fire, they require evidence of the certified integrity and safety of that electrical installation.
From small domestic testing and reports, through to larger commercial installations, AJ Electrical provides packages to include the full scope of testing services; which could be seen as one of the reasons we are the first choice of a large variety of clients and customers.
We pride ourselves on having a dedicated electrical testing team who take pride in the work and are managed by a 2391 C&G qualified testing engineer.
This enables all statutory and regulatory requirements to be met and, furthermore, means that our client will be provided with a comprehensive certification pack.
We can also offer routine testing and inspections on the following:
Emergency lighting testing to BS5266
Fire alarm testing to BS5839
Testing of fixed electrical equipment (PAT Testing)
For all commercial sites, testing and maintenance is mandatory. It is important to consider the following:
It is the legal duty of owners or the responsible person to ensure that installations, plant and equipment are safe for use.
It is, in the majority of instances, a requirement of insurance policies that British Standards for Emergency Lighting and Fire Alarms are complied with.
A planned maintenance schedule ensures standards are met and assists in cost planning.
Taking remedial action rather than preventative is not cost effective and as up to 25% of fires are caused by faulty electrical equipment or installations we therefore advise routine testing is implemented.
In the event of fire, the HSE, insurance company and fire brigade may well ask questions regarding the condition of electrical systems.
Where electrical safety is concerned, the defendant is "guilty until proven innocent". The defendant must prove that they have taken all reasonable steps to comply with the regulations.
Domestic properties should also be tested with a current inspection report every 10 years, and your insurance may be invalid without this; as it is necessary to protect yourself and others to keep as many people safe as possible.
