To keep a high level of maintenance, ensuring the electrical installation is safe, an Electrical Inspection Condition Reports (EICRs) is required. The inspection rolls round the whole site on a three-year basis due to their site being an industrial environment. As a manufacturing facility, the site has many Distribution Boards for specialist equipment and different production areas. They need to continue functioning with limited disruption.
To enable the client to achieve the above, the EICR is carried out on their electrical installation at regular intervals, testing a different percentage of the installation on each visit, rather than to inspect the whole site in one go.
We liaise with the site Facilities Manager to plan in each area that requires inspecting. The discussion includes what safe approach will meet our clients wishes, minimise disruption to site production and establish expected timescales. Consideration with this client involves site conditions i.e. working at height, working on or near live electrical equipment, areas that require testing have clear access and isolation can take place.
Some testing/remedial works are carried out during weekends and/or out of hours.
Code 1 (dangerous conditions) found are addressed immediately where possible.
Code 2 and Code 3 recommendations found are reported and quoted to be carried out in the future.
