As a business owner, you are responsible for ensuring the safety of your employees and visitors to your premises. One way to meet this responsibility is by having an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) on your electrical systems.
An EICR is a thorough electrical installation inspection, including wiring, circuits, and electrical equipment. It identifies any defects, damage, or deterioration that may pose a safety hazard and any non-compliance with the relevant electrical safety regulations.
An EICR ensures that your electrical systems comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations (1989), which require all electrical systems to be safe and maintained in a safe condition. By having an up-to-date EICR, you can demonstrate to regulators, insurers, and other stakeholders that you are meeting your safety obligations.
An EICR helps to identify and address potential safety hazards before they become a risk to your employees and visitors. By preventing electrical accidents, you can avoid injury or even fatalities, as well as the associated legal and reputational consequences.
By identifying potential hazards early on, an EICR can help prevent costly electrical faults or disruptions to your business operations.
As a business owner, you have a lot on your plate. Knowing that your electrical systems are safe and compliant can give you peace of mind and allow you to focus on other aspects of your business.
The recommended frequency for EICRs varies depending on the type of premises and the nature of the electrical systems. In general, commercial premises should have an EICR conducted every five years, and industrial premises every three years. More frequent inspections may be required for certain types of equipment or high-risk installations. A swimming pool distribution board, for example, should be tested annually.
