Inspection and Testing

Many licensing authorities and insurance companies require some form of periodic electrical inspection. HPES can tailor an inspection and testing program focused upon safety, statutory requirements and budget.


For many international temporary events, we are regularly asked to scrutinise the design, construction and robustness of electrical systems for national global television and radio broadcast.  In such situations, our methods are clearly designed and agreed with all parties to help ensure safety and reliability.


Our approach will differ depending upon the site and the specific requirements meaning that the service given will be most appropriate for the specific electrical installation.  On completion we’ll present you with agreed documentation.  This may be either a tailored narrative document or usually an Electrical Inspection and Condition Report (EICR), containing a full schedule of test results and a prioritised list of defects. 


Over subsequent years, we like to inspect a fixed percentage of the electrical installation, building a relationship of trust with our client base.  The exact manner depends upon the system but means that the entire system is regularly looked over, minimising disruption and helping to identify issues as they develop.


There are circumstances where a full EICR may not be appropriate or your business can’t tolerate downtime e.g. electrical intake inspections. In such cases we can arrange for backup power generation with the option of a temporary UPS. When it comes to “mission-critical” plant, we can perform thermographic surveys while equipment is in-use to help identify loading issues and lose connections.


As an NICEIC Approved Contractor we can advise on the most cost-effective ways to resolve defects and maintain compliance, based on your immediate priorities and long-term plans.

HPES can help you with:

  • Compliance with licensing and insurance requirements.

  • Electrical Inspection and Condition Reports (EICR).

  • Managed minimal-downtime inspections of critical systems.

  • Servicing and inspection of theatrical lighting equipment.

  • Schematics and schedules for existing installations.

  • Prioritisation and costings for remedial works.
