Electrical Inspection and Testing is the testing procedures which our professional electricians use to ensure that a circuit is working correctly and safely for use, before being energised. It is a set of processes and procedures which must be followed and involves the use of test equipment to measure and confirm that the installation is functioning as expected, in accordance with the wiring regulations. Once all maintenance and testing has been carried out, the electrician will create a report of all work which has been carried out.
The main legislation relating to electrical inspection and testing activities is the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (EAW). Penguin FM ensures that electrical systems and equipment are maintained, to prevent danger. All work on or near to electrical systems will be carried out in a safe manner and will always be subject to the appropriate risk assessment.
Penguin FM offers RCD testing which is the process of safely ‘tripping’ your RCD to ensure it will operate quickly should there be an electrical incident. This can also be known as safety switch testing.
With our LED lighting installations, not only can you improve the quality of light, which improves employee wellbeing and productivity – you can simultaneously make considerable cost savings, on both maintenance and energy bills.

Our mechanical and electrical services ensure that buildings and equipment work better and more efficiently. Whether it’s an office block, a medical centre, a school or a fast food retailer, we ensure that our installations are completed on time and within budget.
Emergency lighting is usually required to operate fully automatically and provide illumination at a sufficient level to enable all occupants to evacuate the premises safely. We ensure that all emergency lighting across all our client’s premises is fully maintained through the provision of regular testing.
At Penguin FM we offer fixed wire testing, which is also referred to as an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). This is a test which involves checking the electrical installations or circuits within a building are safe and complaint with the relevant workplace safety legislation.
Our full PAT test includes a visual inspection of the appliance and an in-depth check using specialised PAT testing equipment. This test checks earth continuity, lead polarity, and insulation resistance of the appliance.
Testing should be performed by qualified electrical engineers, experienced in electrical inspection and testing procedures and the use of the relevant testing equipment. It is important that your property is safe and compliant with regulations and legislation to ensure your property complies with relevant health and safety laws.
In addition, basic, visual inspections of electrical equipment (both fixed installations and portable appliances), carried out on a regular basis, can identify wear, tear, faults and defects before they potentially develop into a serious hazard. Aside from keeping the people inside your property safe, committing to a regular testing and inspection schedule can prove to be a money saving step for your organisation.
