What are the characteristics of an Electrical Installations?

 

An electrical installation consists of all the fixed electrical equipment that are supplied from the electricity Meter. It includes the cables that are usually concealed within the building fabric, accessories, such as socket outlets and switches, and the consumer unit that contains all the Miniature Circuit Breakers ( MCB’s ), Residual Current Devices (RCD’s ) & other protections.

The REBT 842/2002 states: ‘Reasonable provision shall be made in the design and erection of the electrical installation in order to protect persons operating, maintaining or altering the electrical installation from fire or injury,

There are many factors that contribute to the making of a ‘good’ electrical Installation. For example the installation should have:

• Covers in place to ensure that fingers cannot inadvertently come into contact with live parts.
• Broken or damaged accessories should be replaced without delay.
• Adequate Socket Outlets for the number of portable appliances likely to be used, in order to minimise the need to use multi-socket adapters or extension leads.
• An RCD (residual current device) provides additional protection against electric shock.
• Adequate earthing and bonding arrangements. Earthing ensures that a RCD will operate fast enough to clear an electrical fault before it can cause danger of electric shock or fire, whilst bonding ensures that any electric shock risk is minimised until the fault is cleared.
• When considering 3 phase supply it is essential to have all loads as balanced as possible.
• A sufficient number of circuits to avoid danger of overload and minimise inconvenience in the event of a fault.

 

Poorly Maintained Electrical Installations.

 

An electrical installation, once installed, can not simply be ignored. Over time, the installation will deteriorate. Connections can work loose – presenting a fire hazard – people can be heavy handed whilst plugging in Items of equipment or utilising accessories also building or maintenance work can have a detrimental effect on the wiring etc.

Some basic checks can be carried out by the owner, landlord or their agent, these checks include:


• Broken socket outlets and / or switches
• Signs of scorching around socket outlets due to overloading.
• Overheating of electrical equipment – usually associated with a strong fish-like smell.
