Our electrical testing Epsom services cover a wide range of electrical testing such as RCD testing, fire alarms, portable appliances, emergency lighting and electrical installation condition reports (previously known as periodic inspections). There are many electrical testing services that are mandatory by law if you are a landlord or a commercial property owner; you will need documentation to prove that these electrical tests and inspections have taken place.
As a landlord, you have a duty of care to your tenants to ensure that the electrical installations within the property are safe to use to protect belongings being damaged and more importantly, to prevent electrical shocks and fires that could cause injury or death.

Within commercial buildings, you also need to get an electrical installation condition report on a regular basis. Additionally, you must have your fire alarm systems and emergency lighting systems checked and tested on a regular basis.
