Fixed Wire Testing / Periodic Inspection
We are fully committed to ensuring that all our client’s facilities are tested in the safest and most effective manner possible, ensuring full compliance with the current Irish legislation, and reducing all threats posed by electricity in the workplace, to both the business and everyone onsite.
Where circuits can be de-energised, according to S.I. No. 299/2007 – Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007 and the accompanying Guidance Note, it is recommended that Fixed Wire Testing is carried out, and that the suggested period between inspection and testing is dependant on the type of workplace in question.
Due to the nature of the work, Fixed Wire Testing requires circuits to be de-energised, meaning that most of the time the work needs to be performed out-of-hours.
In some instances, due to the type of business in question, and how the electrical infrastructure was initially designed, isolations are just not possible. Where this is the case, we would recommend a thorough energised test with our TEGG Service Division, which is accepted as a replacement to Fixed Wire Testing.
Best practice would always be, to carry out a regular energised TEGG Service test and inspection of the electrical distribution system while under normal operational load. Along with carrying out Fixed Wire Testing at the recommended intervals on those circuits which can be isolated.
Brooklyn Engineering Service's forward thinking approach to electrical testing and compliance has recently been recognised by AXA Insurance, and we are not their Chosen Service Provider as part of their new Risk Control campaign.
After every test and inspection, a detailed report is presented with all finding and recommendations explained in detail.
