God is the light bulb, to where faith is the light switch

The importance of lighting is often overlooked.  A beautifully decorated room can appear dull and uninviting if the wrong lamp type or too few lights are installed. The engineers at BJG Electrical have designed 1000’s of home lighting schemes in many different types of property.  We therefore also have a vast product knowledge of light fittings, lamp types and dimming/ control systems and most importantly the combinations that work. 

 Allow us to design a lighting scheme for you that will bring alive your property, both inside and out.  Let us introduce you to scene setting controls which will pre-program lighting to match the occasion or transform the mood e.g. dining, entertaining, reading or cinema.  If this is too far, we can accommodate for more practical, conventional lighting operation that still creates a big impact  

BJG Electrical can change the way you perceive lighting by designing it into your home for your needs.  

Here are some of the services we offer:

  • Recessed lighting
  • External lighting installation
  • LED lighting
  • Bathroom lighting
  • Swimming pool lighting
  • Theatre and architectural lighting
  • Commercial space lighting

  • Security lighting
  • Energy efficient lighting solutions
  • Dimming control/ lighting control systems

Periodic inspection, testing and condition reporting of electrical systems is necessary because all electrical installations deteriorate. For instance, accessories or cables can suffer general wear and tear, corrosion, overloading and ageing to mention a few.

This applies to both the home and workplace. In order to assess the safety of a system, periodic inspection and testing is the obvious solution. Licensing authorities, public bodies and insurance companies may require it as part of their terms and conditions. Also, landlords are required to provide a tenant with an electrical installation in good condition and repair.

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, requires that as may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger. 

Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 state ‘every employer shall make a suitable and sufficient assessment of: a) the risks to the health and safety of his employees to which they are exposed whilst they are at work’

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 state ‘every employer shall ensure that work equipment is so constructed or adapted as to be suitable for the purpose for which it is used or provided’

The Landlord and Tenant act 1985 states that 'the property should be fit for people to live in' and 'should be kept in a fit state'.

The facts are a little unsettling; according to Government statistics 20,403 fires are caused by electrical faults, resulting in 48 deaths and 3,324 injuries every year. 22 people died in 2010 in their homes, as a direct result of electrocution or resulting burns.  Around 1000 electrical accidents at work are reported to HSE each year and about 25 people die of their injuries. You could run the risk of significant compensation claims should there be an incident in the workplace. With all this in mind, it’s obvious why we need to put into place a structured programme of maintenance with regard to our electrical systems.

BJG Electrical is a fully Approved NICEIC contractor and can therefore provide you with the industry-recognised Electrical Installation Condition Reports.
