Transguard earns NICEIC accreditation
Transguard accredited by UK electrical authority NICEIC after successful audit of health and safety standards and quality thresholds
Transguard Group, has been accredited by the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC), a UK-based certification body for electrical installation and facilities management contractors.
The accreditation positions Transguard as an ‘approved contractor’ after the company’s key electrical engineers successfully completed the rigorous competency audit at Dubai Marina Residence buildings.
“Complying with international best practice for electrical health and safety as well as risk assessment, is of paramount importance to us and our customers. Being accredited by NICEIC will further enhance our systematic and measurable approach towards operational excellence,” said Greg Ward, MD, Transguard Group.
Transguard successfully navigated a rigorous assessment process conducted by a NICEIC qualified engineer, who evaluated numerous examples of completed electrical maintenance work.
The officer also verified all relevant documentation was accurate, current and easily accessible and that key supervisory staff were competent and had the relevant qualifications and experience.
Eddie Arrowsmith, regional engineering manager for NICEIC: “We re-assess our registered contractors at least once a year to guarantee these high standards are maintained and that qualified supervisors are competent and responsible for the safety, technical standard and quality of electrical work under their supervision.”
NICEIC has been assessing the competence of electrical contractors throughout the UK for over 60 years.
It currently has over 36,000 registered contractors who carry out 90% of all electrical work in the UK and is now bringing its expertise in the UAE and the wider Middle East
