Commercial EICR

EICR Health And Safety -
Protecting your staff from serious injury or death. The safety of your employees should be paramount to any business owner. Regular electrical testing will provide peace of mind that measures have been taken to ensure your workplace is safe – and it’s difficult to put a price on that. Injuries and deaths in the workplace are unfortunately all too common, but you can reduce the risk of electrical shocks, fires and accidents by ensuring your electrics are periodically inspected. This is not to mention the cost of a fire or serious accident which could have been avoided.

Compliance -
Meeting your electrical safety at work obligations. There are statutory laws which require business owners to take appropriate measures to prevent accidents, including:

  • The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 which states that employers are responsible for the health and safety of their employees in the workplace
  • The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 which require precautions to be taken against the risk of death or personal injury from electricity used as part of work activities
  • The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) regularly prosecutes businesses which fail to protect employees from electrical injuries at work. An EICR helps you fulfil your obligations by providing documented proof that your electrics have been thoroughly inspected. This can be crucial in the event of any accidents that are investigated by the HSE.

Insurance -
Making sure your insurance pays out in the event of a claim. Insurance are increasingly requesting that electrical testing is carried out and evidenced on a regular basis as part of your policy agreement. Requirements such as this should be detailed in your policy, so it’s important to make sure you have thoroughly read and understood it. Whether your insurance will pay out in the event of a claim related to an electrical incident depends on the terms of your policy and whether you have met those terms. This may include being able to prove robust processes for checking your electrics are safe – such as an EICR certificate – and that the incident was therefore unavoidable.

Saving Money -
How electrical inspection can save your business money. As well as making sure your electrics are safe, getting an EICR trained and qualified electrician to inspect your installations could even save you money. The EICR tests systems and identifies faults. It could be, for example, that you have an overloaded circuit or a piece of equipment that is overheating and is, therefore, wasting energy and costing you money. An EICR report can make recommendations for efficiency improvements that you hadn’t thought of or didn’t realise were necessary.

Energy Efficiency -
Saving money and doing your bit for the environment. Further to saving money by having equipment that is functioning correctly, a decent EICR can also help make recommendations for energy efficiency improvements. This could include lighting, heating, motor control, fans and pumps. In addition to cutting costs, reducing energy consumption is a great way of boosting your business’s carbon footprint in line with your corporate social responsibility commitments.
