Inspection and testing by Partridge Electrical

Electrical Test & Inspection Service Complying With British Standard BS7671:2008 17th Edition (IEE Wiring Regulations and Guidance Notes)

All employers have legal obligations under the health & safety at work Act 1974 and the Electricity at work Regulations 1989 to ensure that electrical installations and equipment in places of work are safe. The Periodic Test and Inspection commonly known as “Fixed Wire Testing” is one method of ensuring your electrical distribution system is safe.

We operate under NICEIC accreditation, who verify all our engineers and procedures. This gives you peace of mind and ensures that our work is to the highest standards.
