Before carrying out a commercial electrical installation, Russell Hewes LTD takes the time to understand what a client is looking for. Depending on a company’s needs, this could range from a full electrical installation for a new commercial property to a partial rewiring of your current premises – if you are planning to extend or renovate, for example. Here are some of the questions we will typically ask when you first approach us about installation work:
Upon completion of an electrical installation, addition or alteration, Russell Hewes LTD will provide you with a certificate declaring that it meets the appropriate safety standards. This will either be an Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC) or a Minor Electrical Installation Works Certificate (MEIWC).
It’s important to keep hold of this certificate as it will save you from having to pay for costly exploratory work in the future. In addition, if somebody claims a fire or injury was caused by an electrical installation, an EIC or MEIWC can serve as documentary evidence that it was completed to a satisfactory standard of safety.
As an employer, it’s your responsibility to protect the health and safety of your employees. For that reason, you’ll need to ensure that your electrical installations are kept in good working order.
At Russell Hewes LTD, we have the necessary expertise to carry out EICR (Electrical Inspection Condition Report) testing for your business every five years, as well as PAT testing on your electrical appliances. If any remedial work is required following these tests, we will provide you with a quote upfront and make sure it is completed at a time that suits you, with minimal disruption.
