Works carried out in accordance with Statutory Regulations, HSE Approved Codes of Practice, Bespoke Maintenance Regimes (i.e. CIBSE, HVCA) and Manufacturers' Specifications.
Electrical installation works are carried out by our qualified electricians in all types of commercial premises, in accordance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, and BS7671, commonly known as the Institute of Electrical Engineers 17th Edition Regulations.
Periodic Electrical Test & Inspection
Regulation 89 of the 2007 Health and Welfare at Work Regulations states that "an employer shall ensure that an existing electrical installation is tested by a competent person, in an appropriate manner, from time to time, having regard to the nature, location, and use of the installation, and defects found rectified promptly to prevent danger". Mid-Tech Services can advise on the frequency and nature of testing, carry out the testing and rectify any defects identified.
Portable Appliance Testing
A portable appliance may be defined as "an item of electrical equipment fitted with a plug allowing disconnection from the electrical supply without use of a tool". There is no direct legal obligation for an employer to carry out Portable Appliance Testing. However, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 require that "any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition". The regulations do not specifically state how this is to be achieved, or the frequency that testing should be carried out. Implementation of a Portable Appliance Testing regime is the most common method of demonstrating due diligence and compliance with the regulations. Mid-Tech Services can advise on the frequency of testing, carry out the testing and rectify any defects identified.
Emergency Lighting should provide sufficient illumination to allow all occupants of a premises to evacuate safely in the event of mains power loss due to supply disruption, fire or other reason. Emergency Lighting should operate fully automatically on loss of mains power. The legal requirement to have in place and maintain adequate Emergency Lighting is covered under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1989 and the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. British Standard BS5266-1: 2011 details the requirements for the installation and testing of emergency lighting systems. Mid-Tech Services can advise on and carry out installation and routine testing of your systems.
We can carry out installation, maintenance and repair to most types of lighting systems. Additionally, we are able, through our a specialist supply chain, to replace existing light fittings with the latest LED technology making significant reductions in electric consumption and costs whilst maintaining existing lux levels.
