Some people may feel it is too soon to mention the C word, but if you are considering scheduling your EICR into the Christmas period, it is important to make sure that you get your dates established well in advance. For many industries Christmas is a hectic period and certainly not a good time to be having to fit electrical installation testing in. However, for some industries the Christmas period is the perfect quiet spot in the year to carry out some building maintenance and make sure that you are fulfilling your duties as a diligent owner or manager.
Remember that it is your responsibility as a duty holder, as laid out in the Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989, to keep your buildings safe. An EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) provides you with the framework to fulfil this obligation, giving you evidence of on-going care of your building. The length of time between tests varies according to the type of structure and its use, so, if you are unsure of how often you should test please contact us for more advice.
If you are looking to schedule in your testing for the Christmas period, we shut down on the afternoon of 21st December, and re-open on the morning of the 2nd of January. However, if you are thinking of taking advantage of your own empty building to do some maintenance work over the Christmas period we may be able to help.
We understand that running a business can be a difficult and stressful task and trying to fit everything in may be a struggle. We pride ourselves on our flexibility and will always endeavour to carry out electrical testing and installation at a time that suits our customers, rather than ourselves. If your quietest time of year is the Christmas shutdown and it would help with the smooth running of your building maintenance to have the work done over the Christmas period, we may be able to do this for you. After all there are only so many days one can eat cold turkey for…
