Having your office or shop electrical installation inspected on a regular basis can save you a great deal of money in the long run – and that’s only the beginning of the benefits. The periodic inspection is crucial to the safe and reliable operation of your premesis infrastructure. Unexpected faults at the least can cause disruption to your day to day business running, loss of trad and costly downtime of staff and at worst be a danger to anyone who comes into contact with the fault or the cause of a fire starting.

It is a legal requirement for all commercial premesis in the UK to carry out a periodic inspection of the electrical installation every 5 years.

Regular inspection means that any issues with the electrical installation can be kept to a minimum, problems can be rectified and a maintenance program can be put in place to deal with any longer term requirements for upgrading or renewal of older installations. Staff and customers can be kept safe and you have peace of mind that you are fulfilling your obligations under the law.

Periodic inspection and maintenance can help you extend the life of your electrical installation. If you don’t have these aspects of your store or office checked regularly, you may be forced to replace whole systems from scratch even if you are on a tight budget, it certainly makes financial sense to maintain over time.
