Many duty holders are unaware of the gap between BS7671 and other British safety standards when it comes to electrical panels. Panels that are installed, modified, or replaced without proper documentation can expose duty holders to legal and safety risks under EaWR 1989.
That’s why Panel Risk Assessments are essential!
Panel Risk Assessments are also:
🤝A way of helping duty holders comply with EaWR Reg 4(1) & 2 and ensure their workplaces are safe and legal.
🤝A simple and effective way of identifying electrical hazards as required by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regs 1999.
🤝An effective audit of existing permit and authorisation to work systems.
‼️Note – an EICR does not cover all aspects of control equipment as per BS7671, even with a full inspection and testing programme
💻Guardian makes it easy for you, with TraQ-it allowing you to monitor any changes continuously!
You might be curious about what Guardian’s PRA programme includes…
➡️ A thorough inspection of Low Voltage cat 1-4 panels as far as reasonably practicable, by our fully qualified electrical engineers, according to your request.
➡️Paperless reports and all related documentation uploaded to TraQ-it.
➡️ID Labelling system across all panels including QR codes that provide instant access to relevant records via TraQ-it.
