Testing

James Steele Electrical Services Ltd provide a full range of electrical testing services covering all aspects of the Electricity at Work Regulations.

Electrical testing in compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations requires that precautions must be taken against the risk of death or personal injury from electrical systems and equipment used in the working environment. To comply with these regulations regular inspection and testing of electrical installations and Portable Appliance Testing (PAT testing) has to be implemented in all places of work.

Inspection and testing of electrical installations is required on the completion of all works, as well as periodically and when alterations are carried out.

We are a team of highly competent and reliable NICEIC approved electrical contractors who are qualified to carry out electrical testing and can competently and efficiently undertake any necessary repairs. We will provide you with a full electrical testing results report and certificate once the electrical safety testing standards are met.
