At KAD Electricians, we start assessing risks, such as:

  • Electric shock
  • Burns or fire
  • Moving equipment
  • Power supply interruptions
  • Arcing or burning

If any part of the testing fails to comply, this specific test, together with the previous test, will need to be done again once the fault has been fixed, as the test’s results may not have been accurate.
