Electrical safety for Home Owners and Landlords

For Home Owners

There are several sources of potential risk in the home when it comes to electrics, and in many instances electrical work should be undertaken by trained, qualified professionals.  This is particularly relevant when dealing with your council’s building control department

Many electrical faults cannot be detected at a visual/operational level, and inspections surveys and periodic inspection are the only way to uncover any latent defects.

It is recommended by the Electrical Safety Council that households have their electrical installations tested at least once every five years (shorter intervals may be required depending on condition of installation) for signs of deterioration

We offer a full inspection and testing service covering your electrical installation, as well as appliance testing (PAT Testing).   From these reports we can recommend any and all improvements that may be required to ensure your household is electrically safe.

Accidental fires of electrical origin in home (2007)

Deaths:  49
Injuries:  3,477
Fires:  21,424

For Landlords

If you let a property in the UK, you should ensure that the electrical systems and all appliances supplied are safe

In the event of an electrical fault causing death or injury, landlords can be found negligent resulting in financial and custodial sentences.

The Electrical Safety Council (ESC) has provided a report giving guidance for landlords that can be obtained by its website.  The guidelines outline four key activities that should be undertaken by landlords, that include:

Visual checks – checking for visible damage/flickering lights

Electrical installation condition reports (EICR) previously known as Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) – recommended every 5 years, or at the change on tenancy

Portable Appliance Test (PAT) – frequent inspection is necessary, but varies for different types of appliances

Fire Alarms and Emergency Lighting – correct selection, testing and maintenance

Full guidance notes can be obtained  by visiting ESC website
