How We Do It
Fixed Wire Testing
A Periodic Test Report on all electrical installations is required, as all electrical equipment over time deteriorates from wear and tear, corrosion, excessive electrical loads, aging and environmental influences. Woodward Group provides a bespoke solution for every client; our focus is on minimising disruption to your business operations during testing.
Fixed Wire Testing not only demonstrates that you are compliant with numerous health and safety regulations but, of increasing importance, it ensures you are compliant with the requirements of most commercial insurers. Many commercial insurers now require evidence of compliance in the form of an up to date Electrical Installation Condition Report completed by a suitably qualified and experienced company.
Portable Appliance Testing
Portable Appliance Testing involves inspecting and testing any movable electrical appliance, varying from office equipment to factory machinery. Health and safety regulations require that electrical appliances are safe and maintained to prevent any harm to people. Equipment manufacturers recommend testing at regular intervals to ensure continual safety. Although this type of testing is not mandatory by law, it does ensure that you are compliant with health and safety regulations, ensuring the safety of your employees and visitors.
Our simple PAT pricing structure is the most competitive in the market. We achieve this by keeping costs down where it matters and passing these savings on to you our customer, ensuring your business comes first.
Thermal Imaging is the process of using a special camera designed to look only for heat by way of infra red (IR) energy waves – potential problems can often be found due to excess heat being released by an electrical system.
Thermal imaging is a forward-thinking method of testing. Being safer and quicker in obtaining results, it also has the advantage of detecting anomalies often invisible to the naked eye; thermography allows corrective action to be taken before costly system failures occur. Knowing that 20% of all fires are triggered by electrical faults, thermal imaging helps by identifying these hazards quickly and before they become an issue and cause irreparable damage.
A business is legally obliged to ensure that its fire alarm system is in good working order and adheres to current regulatory standards. Our team of friendly fire alarm engineers can conduct all the necessary tests to ensure your fire safety system is operating in line with BS 5839 regulations.
Our Compliance division also covers emergency lighting testing. We can provide a detailed report on your existing lighting system and provide any upgrades necessary to bring it in line with current BS 5266 regulations.
We also carry out a variety of testing for the more specialist area of HV and LV (high and low voltage). Our maintenance reports ensure all key aspects of HV and LV are inspected and reported on in accordance with BS 6626 regulations.
