Workplaces and Commercial Premises

Regulations in the UK require all workplaces to undergo an Electrical Installation Condition Report, also known as the EICR test or fixed wire testing, periodically. Different premises have specific intervals that the tests must be conducted by. Workplaces that pass the EICR inspection will receive an electrical safety certificate, signifying compliance with safety standards.

 

It is critical to adhere to the Electrical Work Regulations of 1989 which is a statutory document. Failure to conduct fixed wire testing and ensure a safe workplace can lead to severe repercussions, including the decommissioning of the building and substantial financial penalties. Possessing an EICR certificate through fixed wire testing is concrete evidence that your workplace is 100% compliant and maintains the highest safety standards.

C3 - Recommendations for improvement or advisories for improvement are given.

Frequency of Testing

To comply with your duty of care obligations and electrical safety standards in business premises, domestic properties or rental properties, under the Electrical work regulations 1989, it is recommended that EICR routine checks are conducted by qualified electricians on an annual basis as part of the regular electrical PAT testing of electrical appliances and fire safety services which phs Compliance is able to provide. The maximum period between inspections by a qualified engineer should be no longer than 3-5 years depending on industry.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is dynamic load balancing?
    Dynamic load balancing serves as a device that constantly monitors real-time changes in your energy consumption, both day and night. Its primary function is to evenly distribute power, preventing any strain on the electrical system and potential overloads. Consider those bustling moments at home when the washing machine, tumble dryer, oven, and kettle are all in operation simultaneously. Adding electric vehicle (EV) charging to the mix could risk blowing a fuse. Dynamic load balancing steps in to ensure your EV charges safely and optimally without requiring any manual intervention from you.
  • So, how does dynamic load balancing operate?
    Using a current transformer (CT) clamp, it tracks the total load (amps) flowing through your home. This clamp connects to your incoming energy supply cable and transmits real-time energy usage data to a charging management system, which can be integrated into or external to the charger. The system then communicates with your home EV charger, guiding it on how much power it can draw from your available electricity, optimizing allocation for efficiency. For instance, during periods of high appliance usage, the charging process may pause or slow down. Conversely, when your energy demand decreases, more energy is directed to the charger, facilitating faster EV charging when your household energy usage is minimal. Own more than one EV? A dynamic load balancer enables the installation of multiple chargers on the same electrical circuit. This allows simultaneous charging of both vehicles by skillfully balancing the distribution of available power between them. Some chargers even allow you to set preferences if you want to prioritize faster charging for a specific vehicle.
  • What are the benefits of dynamic load balancing?
    • No need for electrical system upgrades If your electrical system isn't prepared for the added load of an EV charger, expensive upgrades might be necessary. Dynamic load balancing eliminates this concern by ensuring your EV charger never exceeds a safe energy usage level. • Avoid accidental fuse blowouts The charger intelligently adjusts its speed or pauses charging when high-energy appliances are in use, preventing any accidental overload. It resumes or accelerates charging when energy-intensive devices are not in operation. • Optimized charging efficiency Dynamic load balancing continually optimizes charging based on available home electricity, preventing excess energy draw from the grid. This not only enhances safety but could also lead to cost savings on electricity.
  • How does using an EV charger impact the environment?
    Using an EV charger to power an electric vehicle greatly reduces pollution compared to traditional petrol or diesel vehicles. Electric vehicles (EVs), however, produce zero emissions from the exhaust. Even when charged from the grid, EVs have much lower overall emissions due to the efficiency of electric motors and the increasing use of renewable energy in electricity production. The benefits are even greater when using a renewable energy tariff, as green energy sources like wind, solar, and hydro power can nearly eliminate the carbon footprint of driving an EV. Home solar panels further enhance sustainability by allowing drivers to use clean, locally produced energy. Widespread use of EV chargers and electric vehicles also promotes broader environmental benefits. It encourages the growth of renewable energy infrastructure and fosters innovation in energy storage and smart grid technologies. These advancements create a more resilient and sustainable energy system, capable of supporting more renewable energy sources. Overall, switching to electric vehicles and using EV chargers not only reduces the immediate environmental impact of road transport but also helps build a greener, more sustainable future for energy and transportation.
  • Why should I install an EV charger at home?
    Installing an EV charger at home offers several significant benefits, with convenience being one of the most prominent. Having a home charger means you can charge your vehicle at any time, without needing to find and visit public charging stations. This is especially useful for overnight charging, allowing you to wake up to a fully charged vehicle each morning. The convenience of home charging also means you can avoid waiting in line at public chargers and can charge your vehicle during off-peak hours, which is often more cost-effective. Additionally, having a dedicated home charger can be more reliable, as public chargers may sometimes be occupied or out of order. Cost savings are another reason to install an EV charger at home. While there is an initial upfront cost, the long-term savings can be substantial. Charging at home is typically cheaper than using public charging stations, especially if you take advantage of off-peak electricity rates. Many electricity providers offer special EV tariffs that provide lower rates for charging your vehicle during certain hours. There are government grants and incentives available to help offset the installation cost of home chargers. Over time, the reduced fuel costs, lower maintenance expenses, and potential for increased home value make installing a home EV charger a financially sound decision.
  • What are the different types of EV charger?
    There are three main types of EV chargers: slow chargers, fast chargers, and rapid chargers. Slow chargers, also known as Level 1 chargers, provide up to 3 kW of power. They are the most basic type and typically plug into a standard household socket. These chargers are best for overnight charging, as they take the longest time to fully charge an electric vehicle. Slow chargers are convenient for people who drive short distances daily and have plenty of time to charge their car. Fast chargers, also known as Level 2 chargers, provide between 7 and 22 kW of power. They are much quicker than slow chargers and usually require a special installation, like a dedicated charging unit in your garage or driveway. These chargers can fully charge most electric vehicles in a few hours, making them ideal for daily use. Rapid chargers, or Level 3 chargers, provide 43 to 50 kW of power and are the fastest option available. They are typically found at public charging stations and can charge an electric vehicle to 80% in about 30 minutes. Rapid chargers are great for long trips or when you need a quick top-up, but they are usually more expensive to use than slow or fast chargers and are considerably more expensive to install.
