Electrical Testing

Electrical testing will ensure that all parts of your electrical system are working as they should. If you are an employer then you will need to ensure that your buildings adhere to all safety guidelines and laws. Failure to do so can result in costly fines for non-compliance and unsafe work environments, and this will only negatively impact on your operations. Your insurance provider may also require you to undertake regular checks, and failure to do so will normally render your insurance policy invalid.

It is not uncommon for electrical systems to deteriorate over time through the overloading of electrical appliances. However, with regular testing, we will be able to pinpoint any weaknesses or vulnerabilities in your system. If we do find any issues, we’ll be able to provide a number of solutions to ensure that your systems are safe and secure.

Of course, all checks should be carried out by registered and qualified professionals and that is what we are at BLK Contracts.
