About Us

S J Harris Electrical Ltd is completely independent and unbiased in all final reports that we produce. Each report is based on the condition of the installation or equipment (which ever is applicable) at the time of test against current regulations, and not based on personal recommendations.

One of our many policies is that we as a company pride ourselves on honesty and do not seek to gain further works/income with regards to remedial works based on defects and recommendations from any Inspection and Testing carried out. All staff and sub contractors used have been assessed and approved by the company and are highly skilled 17th Edition C & G 2391 qualified electrical engineers.

As an employer of a highly skilled and motivated workforce, we do not let the thought of our staff being trained to high standards as enough; we continually seek to invest time and money in optimising their potential as skilled operatives through constant training and on-site management. 

Our slogan “benefiting both business and people” is simple; we at S J Harris Electrical Ltd offer client’s exceptionally high standards of electrical services backed up by our substantial knowledge of the electrical industry making us uniquely positioned within this turbulent market.

Our main core of business is in the Inspection & Testing of Electrical Installations. We also offer other specialised electrical services and as mentioned on our home page, we can offer good competitive rates. The following are services provided by S J Harris Electrical Ltd:

  • Inspection & Testing of Electrical Installations

  • Thermal Image Surveys
  • Electrical Installations
  • Minor Electrical Works
  • Public Entertainments License Inspection & Testing

S J Harris Electrical Ltd can offer specifications suitable to any client’s requirement so as to maintain compliance with current legislation. We can also provide flexibility to a client’s budget for such work by offering multi-term contracts where by the contract can be spread over a period of years i.e. a large office block made up of 10 floor levels with a recommended frequency period between inspections of 5 years, we in agreement with the client, would carry out inspection & testing to 20% of the site per year.

The benefits to any client and their company after completion of our services are significant as follows:

  • Pursuance of compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements i.e. Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and the current 17th Edition Wiring Regulations BS 7671: 2008.
  • Lower company insurance premiums may be negotiated with documented proof of a fully tested and certified installation.
  • A reduction in electrical faults will result in fewer subsequent stoppages which will save money.
  • A better documented installation will generally lead to less time taken for maintenance to identify and isolate electrical circuits, which will directly translate into lower maintenance costs.

For example:
If an incident occurred in the workplace whereby a member of staff or visitor received an electric shock due to a fault with the electrical installation or equipment being used, the likely outcome will be of someone, most likely the dutyholder, landlord or building manager being prosecuted for failing to comply with a duty. In a court of Law it will be the accused to show and provide evidence that it was not reasonably practicable for the accused to do more than what had in fact been done to comply with current legislation (section 40 of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974). In this case the evidence that the courts will undoubtedly ask for will be current periodic inspection and test reports, certification, test results etc… and that all safety measures, procedures, R & M statements and work permits (signed off), were followed. In such cases the accused is guilty until proven innocent.
