Portable Appliance Testing

Your Responsibility

The Electricity at work regulation 1989 places legal responsibility on employers, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment. 
Therefore portable appliance testing is an important part of any Health & Safety Policy.
Your Next Move
As a responsible person you should contact Project Solver as the next step in ensuring your compliance.
Why Project Solver?
Our testers are trained to the City and Guilds (2377) standard in Portable Appliance Testing and are enhanced CRB checked. This gives our clients peace of mind.   
Our quote to you includes; 
  • An inclusive rate regardless of whether it is for out of hours work, at night or the weekend 
  • All travel expenses
  • Uniquely numbered easily identifiable labels on all appliances
  • Replacement fuses where necessary, free of charge
  • Certificate of Compliance and report issued on CD and e-mailed to you as a pdf 
  • Timely reminders for re-tests  at a frequency to suit you. The level of inspection and testing required is dependant upon the risk of the appliance becoming faulty, the type of appliance, the nature of its use and the environment in which it is used. The Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) Code of Practice provides the basis for our recommendation. 
As part of our quality assurance we invite our clients to complete a customer comment form and we are so confident of our service that we would be glad to share this feedback with you. 

Electrical Installation Condition Report

Your Responsibility

The Electricity at work regulation 1989 states that all electrical systems and equipment used in the working environment should be in a safe condition. The Health & Safety Executive recommend that in order to comply with the regulations an inspection and testing programme should be undertaken at all places of work.

In addition to these legislative requirements many other organisations such as insurance companies place an obligation on their clients to carry out Periodic inspection and Testing.

What Relevant Legislation Applies?

The legislation of specific relevance to electrical maintenance and fixed installation testing;

•The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974)
•The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations (1999)
•The Electricity at Work Regulations (1989 )
•The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations (1992)
•Wiring Regulations 17th Edition BS 7671 :2008 Incorporating amendment 3: 2015


What Is an Electrical Installation Condition Report?

Fixed Installation Testing involves the testing of electrical services and systems that conduct electricity around a building. It covers all of the hard wiring in a building and includes items such as main panels, distribution boards, lighting, socket outlets, air conditioning and other fixed plant. This involves performing a sequence of rigorous visual inspections and electrical tests on all systems in the building.


Benefits To You

  • Testing of your systems to BS7671:2008, the IEE wiring regulations 17thedition
  • Details of  your installation
  • Extent and limitations of the inspection
  • Supply characteristics and particulars of the installation
  • Schedule of items inspected and tested
  • Schedules of circuit details and test results
  • Summary of the inspection and test
  • Observations and recommendations for actions to be taken, coded by priority 
  • Testing of your systems to Wiring Regulations 17th edition BS 7671: 2008 Incorporating amendment 3: 2015

Thermal Imaging

Why do it?


Electrical circuits and components often fail because of fatigue, defective components, contamination, loose connections, maybe even poor workmanship.  Failing components have one feature in common, they will always experience a rise in temperature or create a 'hot spot' prior to failure. 
Using infrared thermal imaging cameras will allow us to quickly identify problems before components fail.

What Is Involved?

Our engineer using an infra red camera will take images of your electrical panels. This can be done by simply removing the cover or barrier of the electrical distribution equipment, and does not require it to be isolated. 

Electrical components with faults will generate heat; the camera will detect excessive heat in relation to the ambient temperature which will alert the engineer to a potential problem. The engineer will be trained to recognise whether the heat is sufficient to warrant further investigation, where upon you will be notified. 
Your Report Will Include...
Installation details and characteristics 
Schedule of items tested and inspected 
A thermal image and standard digital image of piece of equipment surveyed 
Recommendations for any further investigation required along with an explanation. 

Emergency Light Testing


What Is Emergency Lighting For?

Emergency lighting is energised during an emergency situation when the main power supply fails. The loss of mains electricity could be the result of a fire or a power cut and the normal lighting supplies fail. This may lead to sudden darkness and a possible danger to the occupants, either through physical danger or panic. Emergency lighting operates  automatically and should give illumination of a sufficiently high level to enable persons of all ages to evacuate the premises safely. 

Emergency Lighting Testing And Maintenance

The Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997 require that appropriate testing is performed to maintain compliance of the system. The system should include adequate facilities for testing and recording the system condition.
A 'full discharge test' should be carried out annually. This process entails activating the emergency lights  and leaving them on until the batteries are fully discharged.
At least once a year a suitably qualified service engineer should check the entire emergency lighting system, including discharge for the full specified duration of your units. Maintained emergency units should last for 3 hours, and non-maintained units for 2 hours. 
The testing schedule is in accordance with BS EN 50172:2004 / BS5266-8:2004, 7.2.3 and BS 5266-8:2004, 7.2.4.
