Fixed Wire (Periodic) Testing

The purpose of Fixed Wire Testing (also known as Periodic Inspection and Testing) is to ensure the safety of people and property.

Public Buildings are required to have their electricity supplies checked regularly, and landlords are required to provide tenants with an electrical installation that is safe and in both good condition and repair.

Periodic testing assures you and the inspectors of a safe working environment for employees as well as providing landlords with certification for the safety of tenants.
