In-Service Verification of Electrical Installations
Checking electrical safety to protect human life and property
An essential part of the infrastructure of any industrial plant, warehouse or other building is its electrical installations. Failures or malfunctions in these installations are a major factor in starting fires and may also lead to dangerous electric shocks. To protect human life and property, companies need to assess their electrical risk, analyse the physical condition of the electrical installation, and immediately deal with any potentially dangerous situations. Establishing an efficient maintenance program is a cost-effective way to meet requirements.
What is Electrical Inspection? Electrical inspection involves a series of tests performed on your electrical system, from the main intake through to the final fixed appliances and accessories, either low or high voltage according to the in-service reglementation. Bureau Veritas uses the latest equipment to monitor sound and electron discharge, heat generated by high resistance joints and earth integrity of matrices. A related service is the Infra-Red Thermography survey. This identifies local points of overheating which can potentially lead to starting fires.
