What Is A Periodic Inspection?
A Periodic inspection helps find hidden faults like damaged cable or wiring, bad earthing, and other system faults. The inspection procedure takes place in multiple steps:
· Visual inspection.
· Protective conductor and ring circuit testing.
· Earth fault loop testing.
· Check switches, sockets, and light fitting.
· Also, check signs of overheating, loose and missing parts fixing.
· Inspect sockets to ensure their protection by a suitable residual current device RCD.
· The periodic inspection report will be valid until the subsequent periodic inspection ETCI testing.
Before issuing an inspection report, Oxley Electrical & Security Ltd ensures visual and in-depth check-up of switchgear, fuse box, sockets, wiring system and condition, and any type of damage or default in the electrical system.
After a complete inspection, the professional team of electricians recommends improvements/urgent measures to avoid unsafe conditions.
All these steps ensure that your wiring is safe for the workplace and your workplace is not at the risk of abrupt fire or incident caused by electricity. The complete periodic inspection allows retailers to know faults, their causes and offer safety measures/amendments to remove those minor or fatal faults.
