Inspections & Testing

Keep your business safe and compliant

The only way to ensure that your electrical installation and equipment is safe and compliant is to carry out regular professional inspection and testing. When it comes to electricals, Wessex are the experts you can trust.


Testing of any circuits, fittings and electrical items in your business premises needs to be carried out by a trained professional, using the appropriate equipment and with a full understanding of regulations and the law.

There are nearly 60 different regulations in the UK, covering standards for electrical compliance across circuitry, appliances and machinery. Not only do these need to be adhered to but they must be kept up to date with the latest standard amendments and properly documented. Whether your employees are working with newly installed machinery or equipment, or simply using lights and kettles running on a legacy circuit, the law is in place to make sure that they remain safe in the workplace. It is your responsibility to make sure your business remains compliant.

Low impact, high benefit

Electrical testing should be a simple, regular activity and with Wessex engaged to assess and schedule your business checks, it can be. With minimal disruption to your staff and operations, you can feel confident that your electrical circuits, machinery and appliances remain safe and compliant year-to-year.

Wessex carry out all tests using up-to-the-minute diagnostic equipment, specifically designed to ensure compliance to current Health and Safety guidelines and British Standards. We ensure that our customers are adhering to requirements by providing one-off or regular equipment, appliance and circuitry inspections, as well as maintaining records and test results for you. As you would expect from our experts, all our tests are carried out in accordance with the most up to date British Standards and in a manner that fully complies with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.

Size is not an issue

Wessex offer both fixed installation and portable appliance testing, meaning that we can carry out any tests or certification no matter the size.


Our fixed test consists of full circuit and distribution board checks, including full load readings, with any deviations recorded and copies sent to site and Head Office.

Get into the detail

Around a third of fixed installation tests have a detailed circuit test. These tests include: visual inspection, polarity, earth fault loop impedance, insulation resistance, and much, much more.

PAT testing

Portable appliances are more likely to come and go in your business and we offer one-off high quality PAT testing either immediately, or on a planned date, whatever works for your schedule.



In 2015 Wessex was awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety. This leading third party accreditation scheme recognises high standards in health and safety management, where businesses undergo a vetting process examining health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice.
