EICR) involves the testing of electrical services and systems that conduct electricity around a building. It covers all of the hard wiring in a building and includes items such as fuse boards, lighting outlets, switches, socket outlets, etc and details and observed damage, deterioration, defects, dangerous conditions and any non-compliances with the present-day safety standard that might give rise to danger
To conduct a full inspection and test of the installation the power will be turned off at periods throughout our time on site. A survey will be conducted prior to testing to find out how the power down will affect your business and any special arrangement that you may need to make such as:
Once the power down assessment has taken place this will form part of our RAMS (Risk Assessment/Method Statement) along with details of other risks such as working at height, PPE , Safe isolation, Fire Safety, First Aid, Manual Handling, Trip Hazards, Waste, Electric Shock etc etc. Our Electricians carry with them at all times a Health & Safety handbook detailing these risks.
Prior to attending site our Electricians follow a Method Statement detailing the works to be carried out and associated risks along with details of the power down. Whilst working on site our Electricians also complete a risk assessment log of measures taken while on site.
The report produced by White Testing will detail any observed damage, deterioration, defects, dangerous conditions and any non-compliances with the present-day safety standard that might give rise to danger. When issues are found they are classified with the following codes;
Immediate remedial action required
Urgent remedial action required

At the Electrotechnical Awards 2013 White Testing won ‘Best Customer Service’ for our online portal for clients.
Our Technicians complete via an ipad the report, then post immediately, via the internet, to our online admin system where the data is checked and made available to our client via their own login. The interactive system allows the client to view specific data quickly without having to wade through pages and pages of a report to get to the section they want. See pictures of system & some pages below ‘website screenshots’
