Once your equipment is up and running our job is only just starting.

Keeping your systems safe and in good working order isn’t just good practice and an important part of your safety management regime, it’s often a specific legal requirement.

We work with venues from schools to churches, West End theatres to  Broadcast Studios, Conference & Convention Centres and many more, so we know that when it comes to Inspection and Testing a one-size-fits-all approach just doesn’t cut it.

Our specialist team will work with you to tailor the scope of our services to match the relevant infrastructure and equipment within your venue, from ISITEE (formerly known as PAT testing) to Electrical Inspection and Testing as well as Mechanical Inspections, we’re here to help.

In Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment (PAT Testing)

Checking electrical equipment safety, with visual inspection and testing.

Our technicians work regularly with specialist lighting, audio and visual equipment  – and the importance of appropriate inspection and testing. In fact, we’ve found that very often, a thorough visual inspection can identify many safety issues before any actual testing is performed.

Once the visual inspection and electrical equipment testing is complete, we’ll label your equipment and provide you with a results report for your records.

Electrical Installation Inspection and Testing at Bristol Primary School
Electrical Installation Inspection & Testing

An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) identifies damage, deterioration, defects and/or conditions that may give rise to danger along with observations on opportunities and recommendations for improvement. 

It is recommended that electrical systems should be inspected periodically and have an up-to-date Electrical Installation Condition Report that helps demonstrate your safety management regime. Stage lighting systems, whether in schools, theatres or elsewhere, are no different and need regular Inspection and Testing. 

Our IET qualified electricians will test your system for compliance with the relevant edition of the IET Wiring Regulations and issue a report detailing the outcome of the Inspection and Testing works. This is useful to assist you in prioritising any repair works and to prove to Insurers and Local Authorities you have an effective inspection regime in place that catches potential issues and enables  you to take timely action.

Mechanical Installation Testing at Bristol Primary School
Mechanical Installation & Equipment Inspection and Testing

If your venue or business uses fixed or raise and lower rigging it needs to comply with a range of regulations. We offer electrical and mechanical inspection and testing services to assist you with your legal duties as an employer and/or venue operators to ensure that electrical equipment is safe to use.  

PUWER regulations require equipment provided for use at work to be suitable, safe, maintained in a safe condition and inspected to ensure it is correctly installed and does not show signs of deterioration.  

Overhead static equipment like fixed lighting bars, curtain tracks or other equipment should be inspected under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER).

The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (often abbreviated to LOLER) place legal duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over lifting equipment and lifting accessories.  

Equipment that raises or lowers loads, such as lighting or scenery bars, must be inspected annually (and, in the case of lifting accessories, every six months).  

Whether your venue contains complex flying systems or simple winch bars and curtain tracks they all need to be inspected. Our rigging inspectors will examine your mechanical installations, equipment and accessories, recording the equipment’s condition in a Report of Thorough Examination to help you comply with your legal obligations.

Don’t take our word for it...

 “Just wanted to quickly email to say what a pleasure it’s been to have your team onsite the past few days. They have been friendly and approachable, explained in detail when issues have been found and also asking questions should they be unsure on anything. The venue has been left in an extremely tidy condition, both at the end of yesterday and today, and we have felt that a proper and thorough job has been undertaken with no details missed. 

The team have been a pleasure to have on-site, in addition, it has also been a pleasure dealing with the people at Stage Electrics, and at no point have we felt like we have been left in the dark or missing information.

We are looking forward to having you back again next year. Thank you for all your help, and to all for a fantastic service.” 

Ben Terry - Watersmeet Theatre, Rickmansworth.
