Electrical Remedial Works


Once the electrical safety testing has been carried out, the resultant remedial repairs must completed. The risk is that an accident or incident occurs after tests identify a fault but before that fault is remedied.


 

Regularly there are incidents where sites have been tested but faults not corrected. It’s vital to understand that fixed installation testing is only part of the electrical safety compliance requirement. If the essential remedial work is not complete following testing then the organisation could be culpable of fault and negligence. It’s likely that insurance for the site would be compromised and if the worst should happen then it could be proven that the Duty Holder was liable.
