Our Services

Care Labs provides several services for electrical projects such as electrical safety inspections, electrical system design simulations, power systems study, and analysis. 

Care Labs offers professional electrical installation condition inspection & testing services for companies across Mexico to ensure that your property meets OSHA, NFPA 70E, RFSHMAT and NOM-022-STPS safety standards. 

Important purpose of an Electrical Installation Condition Report:

Like any other installations, electrical installations also deteriorate with age and usage. For example, sockets, and switches can damage, wire deterioration, connections can also become loose.

The severity of degradation is even more severe in installations where adverse elements are involved, i.e., chemicals, extreme temperatures or poor maintenance. One of the main causes of electrical fires in the domestic & industrial facility is faulty, old wiring.

In the event of serious injury, resulting from failure to maintain the electrical integrity of your facility, legal action could be lodged against you.

Facility owners can directly reduce the risk of a fire hazards, damages or any safety issues for their property by regularly checking the condition of the electrical installations.

Federal Regulation for Health, Safety, and the Work Environment – RFSHMAT regulation defines the responsibilities on both owners and their employees to ensure that electrical systems and equipment within their facility are safe, suitable to be used, and are maintained well to prevent any electrical hazards.

This is where an EICR -electrical installation condition report comes in. Performing electrical installation condition testing and inspection assures safety against electrical faults.

Aim of an EICR:

The main aim of an electrical installation condition report can be split into following

To make a note of the inspection findings and any test work that has been carried out to ensure that the electrical installation is 100 percent safe and ready to be continuous use until the next testing and inspection is carried out, especially after having any problems fixed.

To report any damage that has been found, thirdly followed by a rundown of any parts of the electrical installation that do not meet the standards set by the Regulations.

Benefits of an EICR:

  • Avoid losses due to electric shock
  • Higher level of security
  • Use resources more efficiently
  • Clarify electrical safety responsibilities
  • Identify and eliminate security threats
  • Ensure the durability of your expensive electronic equipment
  • Make sure your confident that valuable information is protected from electric shocks.
  • Improve employee morale
  • Compile safety performance dynamic reports
  • Create a positive safety improvement cycle
  • Improve management awareness of electrical issues

The Regulations require building owners to have the electrical installations in their facilities inspected and tested regularly by a qualified and competent person.

What will be Inspected and Tested?

The ‘fixed’ electrical installation of the facility, like the wiring, plug sockets, socket outlets, the light fittings and the fuse box will be tested & inspected. It will include permanent connected devices & equipment like showers and extractors.

What will happen in the inspection?

The inspection will find out if

  • any electrical installations are overloaded
  • any possible electric hazard risks and fire hazards
  • any defective electrical work
  • lack of earthing or bonding
  • all parts are correctly earthed – to prevent potential fatality electric hazard risks.
  • your fuse board is safe and compliant with the current regulations.
  • The wiring in your sockets, lights, switches and equipment is installed correctly.

Electrical Inspection and Testing in EICR:

Tests performed under EICR as follows

  • Checking for protection against electric fires and electric shocks.
  • Insulation resistance check
  • Dielectric Voltage-withstand Test – HiPot test
  • Polarity check
  • Earth electrode resistance check
  • Residual current device (RCD) testing
  • Functional testing of circuit breakers and isolators
  • Ensure earthing is continuous throughout the electrical system.
  • Ensure all bonding conductors are in place and effective.
