Periodic Inspection and Report of Electrical Installations
The time interval between inspections will depend on the type of installation and the way it is used. However for Commercial premises it is generally recommended that the interval should be about 3 years. It should be remembered that the safety of the electrical installation in a premises beyond the ESB meter is the responsibility of the householder.
It is a requirement from the HAS Regulations that every employee must be safe in their place at work and insurance companies are requesting periodic inspection carried out in every commercial building in Ireland .
Over recent times there has been a big increase in the number and types of electrical appliances used in a premises. This is another reason why you should make sure that the electric wiring is adequate for the increased load and demands placed on it. Many older premises contain cables and fittings that maybe have deteriorated with time. Most registered contractors will undertake periodic inspections. Rostek offer a periodic inspection service to consumers who would like to have a detailed report on the condition of the electrical wiring system on their Premises.
