Electrical Inspection: Carry Out and Document Electrical Tests With Timly Software

Electrical Inspection and Testing for Safety at Work

Colloquially referred to as an E-check, an electrical inspection describes the observance of the necessary duty of care with regard to electronic devices, machines and systems. These requirements can be found in the HSE under “Electrical inspection and testing” and on the official website of the UK government.

There is no exception for the devices to be tested; permanently installed electronic devices and systems must also be included in the regular test. This is the only way to ensure the safety of employees in the workplace.

For electrical inspections in accordance with UK regulations, it is also particularly important to have the necessary knowledge about the test procedure and about indications of danger points. The choice therefore quickly falls on external inspectors who test the equipment on site at regular intervals.

In-house employees with the necessary training and knowledge are also becoming more common in large companies. In any case, the deadlines are decisive in order to always meet the state requirements and the company’s own demands.

Electrical Testing Software: The Functions for Your Successful Electrical Testing According to UK Regulations

The most common devices in the E-check are electrical production facilities, E-charging stations, welding equipment, servers, care beds and roller doors. However, devices that are used individually in your industry must also be taken into account.

To ensure that you do not forget anything, an interface to your inventory software is a good idea. In the following, we would like to show you how you can save time and money with Timly as your electrical inspection software.

Thus, it is recommended to check out the “Electricity at Work Regulations”(1989).

Using Timly for Electrical Audits

Timly is a fully comprehensive inventory software with modern functions and interfaces to related topics in your company.

In addition, Timly supports you in electrical testing according to current regulations. The features of this digital test include the reminder, testing and documentation of the results.

Simple Transmission and Storage of Test Reports

Time-consuming paperwork is a thing of the past with Timly. The digital capture of documents makes it possible to save and release test reports directly in the cloud after the electrical inspection. This means that all information is stored in a decentralised location and can be viewed by selected employees

Evaluate and Document Defects

If a defect is detected during the electrical inspection, it can be documented in the respective inventory item file. Damage or excessive wear and tear are thus detected at an early stage and can no longer become sources of danger thanks to the labelling in the system.

The defects are shown, among other things, with photos in a simple upload by the inspector or employee. All data is stored securely and is historically traceable for you.

Who Is Allowed to Carry Out the Electrical Inspection?

Even though the procedure with Timly for electrical testing documentation is simple, not every employee in your company may conduct the test. Depending on the sector (private rented sector with private landlords etc.) only competent persons (i.e. electrical inspector) may carry out periodic inspection and testing in accordance with electrical safety standards. Only the electrical inspectors are authorised to fill out the electrical installation condition report EICR.

In general, you should always rely on an external service provider to take care of the professional testing according to IET wiring regulations in order to ensure that all electrical equipment is properly inspected and tested.

Only in this way, in combination with Timly, can you be absolutely certain that your electronic devices from the inventory list are in a usable condition. Defects outside of the inspection times can also be reported digitally by the employee who is currently using the respective device. For this purpose, Timly offers the possibility to create a digital report on the device within seconds.
