The procedure of performing an electrical safety audit (ESA):

Pre-safety audit: For an effective result, planning plays an important role. The pre-safety audit is similar to providing a base to your assigned work (your plan).

Our technician starts with the visual inspection of the whole electrical inspection site and maintains an electrical safety checklist. This checklist helps technicians ensuring your electrical installation and equipment complying with the New Zealand Electrical Code of Practice (NZECP).

Collect all the documents/data relevant to the sites and create a one-line diagram of the survey site. Gather information about previous fault records and take an overview of the electrical maintenance system.

Electrical safety audit: In this phase of the audit, our technicians start inspecting the incoming power supply section, following up with inspections of the distribution transformer and connected appliance to the electricals installations.

The technician uses a pre-audit prepared checklist to ensure the all-electrical aspect, such as earthing, loose wire, temporary wiring, electrical shocks, maintenance conditions, fire hazards, etc.

Post-safety audit: In this last phase of the audit, the Care Labs technician issue you a digital ESA report with a detailed overview of taken action during the whole ESA procedure and measured data. After that, our technician recommends mitigation techniques and prevention needed for future use.
