First Choice Homes Oldham periodically carries out electrical safety checks to ensure the electrical system to your home is safe for you to use. It is important that we carry out these checks, for us and for you.
Having you electrical safety check carried out will ensure the electrical system in your home is safe for you to use and meets the standards set-out by the Institution of Engineering Technology (IET) Wiring Regulations.
Electrical safety checks are carried out every 5 years.
It will normally take no more than 3 hours to complete. However, if the engineer identifies a wiring fault it may take longer and a further visit may be required.
The engineer will require access to all the rooms in your home and to all your electrical accessories. All accessories require unplugging from the socket outlet, if this could be done before the engineer arrives it will dramatically speed up the testing process. If any of your electrical accessories are covered by items which cannot be moved, for example a wardrobe or a fish tank, you will not be expected to move these.
