Commercial electrical testing services in Sussex
What is an EICR?
Commercial electrical testing services are not only important for your business, they’re essential. Not only that, it’s only fully qualified and NICEIC accredited electricians, such as PES, that can carry them out.
In a nutshell, an EICR will quickly identify any deficiencies or problems with your electrics so that they can be fixed long before they become a hazard, or worse, pose a risk to life. The report will of course highlight any necessary immediate work, too.
PES not only identifies any problems, we can fix them.
Every electrical installation will degrade with age, it’s just how it is. Therefore, regular testing of your electrical circuits and appliances offers essential protection of the wellbeing of your staff.
Should you not organise for testing to be carried out, we must be honest with you: nothing may happen. However, if there’s an accident at your work place caused by an electrical fault that’s deemed to have been preventable you WILL be in trouble – you could even be prosecuted.
