Electrical Compliance

Over 20 years expertise

We bring 20 years of expertise when testing your fixed and portable electrical assets.

  • We advise our clients on mandatory and non-mandatory requirements. This allows you to decide what is appropriate for your organisation.
  • We recommend solutions to ensure total compliance and safety.
  • We advise on the frequency of testing and undertake remedial works on request.
  • We minimise downtime to client operations in all compliance testing.
  • We are highly experienced in working in occupied premises and minimise disruption.
  • Fixed Wire Testing (EICR)

    Fixed Wire Testing is the visual inspection and electrical testing of electrical installations and systems to ensure your building is safe, compliant and operating according to IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671). Regular inspection is an essential part of any maintenance programme.

    The frequency of testing depends of the nature of your organisation. Factors include:

    • The type of installation
    • How often it is used
    • Any external influences
    • Environment to which the installation is exposed

    On completion we issue an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). This comprehensive report will detail the status of your installation along with any remedial work required.

  • Thermal Imaging Surveys

    Thermal imaging is one of the most valuable diagnostic tools for preventative maintenance. A thermographic survey is one of the simplest and most accurate methods to monitor and predict system failure.

    What does thermal imaging involve?

    • A non-contact and non-destructive test
    • Special camera looks only for heat by way of infra-red (IR) energy waves
    • Detects excess heat being released by an electrical system
    • Detects anomalies often invisible to the naked eye
    • Detects electrical and mechanical issues

    Surveys can be performed covering entire sites, or confined to smaller suspect areas. Ideally they will be included on annual planned maintenance programmes (PPMs)

    Typically they are performed during normal operating conditions, causing minimal disruption.

    On completion you will receive a report detailing the condition of your electrical installation and any defects requiring attention.

  • Portable Appliance Testing

    Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is the trusted way to ensure that you meet your organisation’s electrical health and safety responsibilities and to know that your buildings, occupants and assets are safe.  It may also be a requirement of your insurance policy.

    We deliver PAT testing in line with recommended frequency guidelines to proactively detect any potential safety issues.

    What does PAT testing involve?

    • All items to be tested must be unplugged
    • PAT process can be quite disruptive to your ongoing operations
    • We can accommodate your working patterns
    • We providing services during and outside business hours
    • All moveable electrical appliances are visually checked and electrically tested
    • Each item is given a pass or fail label with a unique asset ID number

    When the tests are complete we will provide a PAT report, listing each item that has been tested, its location, and the result of each test.

  • Lightning Protection

    Lightning protection, or more specifically lightning surge protection and earthing systems, prevent loss of life and prevent damage and destruction of property and assets. We offer a comprehensive lightning protection testing and certification service.

    Regular maintenance of your lightning protection installation will ensure that when your system is called upon to protect you it is capable of doing so.

    • We recommend installations inspection and testing every 11 months
    • This takes account of all seasonal variations in resistance or other characteristics of the system
    • All lightning conductors, surge protection and earthing systems are rigorously tested
    • Further to all testing a test certificate is issued
    • We also provide a comprehensive report on the condition of the system
    • Repairs or upgrades are clearly identified with recommendations to restore it to a compliant condition
    • All of our Lightning Protection services are delivered in compliance with BS 6651 / BS EN 63205 and IS EN 62305 and all of its component parts.
  • Machinery Compliance

    The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations, often abbreviated to PUWER, place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over work equipment. PUWER also places responsibilities on companies whose employees use work equipment, whether owned by them or not.  The regulations deal with the work equipment and machinery used in workplaces and aims to keep people safe wherever equipment and machinery is used at work.

    Where the regulations apply to you, the ROL Group team can inspect your equipment with a focus on the safety critical components that could affect the capability of the equipment being operating in a safe manner.  We measure the design and installation of your equipment, highlight any issues where identified, and subsequently implement any necessary safety upgrades.
