The Council for the Care of Churches recommends that electrical installations are inspected and tested every five years, every three years if the church has a public entertainments license. It is also recommended by the HSE that there is an inspection (but not a test) carried out every year.
There may be questions regarding the validity of your church insurance in the event of an electrical fire if testing and maintenance of your electrical installation has been neglected. It is also recommended that all portable electrical appliances, that is any appliance that is plugged in rather than permanently wired in, are inspected and tested on a regular basis to minimise the risks of injury to users.
As listed below, we provide a full Inspection and Testing Service, plus new installations, upgrades and/or maintenance contracts.
Are you aware:
Numerous church fires can be attributed to faulty wiring or electrical Installations.
It is the responsibility of the Church Wardens to ensure that the necessary testing is performed and that any repairs required are undertaken.
