Care Labs Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), provides an assessment of the servicing condition of an electric installation at the time of the inspection, irrespective of the age of the installation.

Need for a periodic electrical installation condition check:

All the electrical installations, electrics, and cables are bound to suffer from wear and tear with age and use. It’s a good practice to inspect and test them regularly to ensure they are in good, safe working order. 

Faulty and old wiring, sockets/appliances are the major causes of electrical fires. Identifying the common causes of these electric fires will help to address any issues to prevent fries. 

These electric fires result in roughly 440 fatal and approximately $1.3 billion in direct property damage according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). By the U.S. fire administration department data, over 45,000 electrical fires happen in the U.S. every year.  

All-electric installations must be inspected and assessed periodically. The inspection and testing should be carried out at appropriate intervals to find out, if anything, needs to be done to maintain the installation in a safe and serviceable condition. 

The EICR ensures that the electrics in your facility are safe and okay for use.

Electrical Installation Condition Report by Care Labs will inform you about:

  • Whether the electrical circuits and cables are in good condition and safe to use
  • Ensures, they are not susceptible to electric hazards or fires
