Electrical Inspections in Schools: Take Your Opportunity

13/11/18



The Christmas holidays are fast approaching, offering schools, academies and colleges a window of opportunity to meet their statutory requirements around electrical installations with minimum disruption to staff and pupils.


Like any organisation, those in the education sector have a duty of care to staff, pupils and visitors to ensure that working environments and equipment are safe.


Testing of electrical appliances and emergency lighting along escape routes are just some of the routine inspection and maintenance requirements in order to achieve compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and IET Wiring Regulations (BS7671).


How can Bureau Veritas help?

With a wealth of sector experience and unrivalled understanding of the latest regulations, our team of electrical industry experts understands the challenges faced by schools, academies and colleges. That’s why we work closely with all our clients across the education sector to plan electrical inspection and testing during holiday periods, helping to minimise the impact on staff, pupils and visitors without compromising on statutory compliance requirements.


Eddy Pegg, Electrical Business Unit Manager, UK & Ireland for Bureau Veritas said: “We’re already working with schools, academies and colleges to offer the full range of services they might need, including fixed wiring electrical inspection and testing, emergency lighting testing and inspections, Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) and other vital services such as Radon testing and monitoring.


“Don’t forget many schools and colleges have entertainment and leisure facilities too, where additional or more frequent testing might be required.


“Holiday periods like half term or the upcoming Christmas period are the perfect opportunity for those in the education sector to secure their testing and inspection routines, because it means we can keep disruption to a minimum. And with a global leader like Bureau Veritas, that’s not the only benefit.


“With a qualified team of electrical industry experts, we offer complete peace of mind to ensure compliance and best practice. Clients can benefit from one supplier and a national team of engineers working across the UK. All this, of course, with access to a full range of testing, inspection and compliance services from the Bureau Veritas team.”
