Electrical Safety and Compliance for Social Housing Providers

Social housing providers need to carry out electrical inspections to ensure that installations in people’s homes are safe and meet today’s safety standards.

Understanding Your Requirements

Property Asset Managers, Landlords and Compliance teams need to:

  • Ensure that their housing stock is safe and complies with the relevant regulations
  • Understand the current condition of electrical installations through the implementation of regular testing and inspection programmes
  • Maximise the life of electrical installations and components through regular maintenance
  • Extend component lives as much as possible and minimise the need for rewiring
  • Update homes and communal areas to meet risk assessments, insurance requirements and health and safety standards
  • Manage annual budgets and deploy resources effectively to achieve value for money
  • Identify and work with competent and reliable contractors to achieve these goals

We have been working with Nottingham City Homes since 2013, producing Electrical Installation Condition Reports for over 14,000 homes.
