Downloadable BS 7909

forms

To make life easier for all, we have made available the model forms that can be found in Annex G of BS 7909:2011. The suite comprises the Completion Certificate (Form G1), the Schedule of Test Results (Form G2) and the Confirmation of Electrical Completion for larger events using more than one Completion Certificate (Form G3).

Comprehensive expertise in temporary power

We specialise in providing support and assistance to those working with electrical systems at temporary events and related installations. James Eade has been working in the entertainment industry for over 20 years, in areas as diverse as theatre, corporate, touring, TV as well as permanent installation work. He represents the industry through various trade associations and sits on several British Standards & IET committees. He has been heavily involved in the creation of BS 7909, and authored the guidebook for the IET on the subject (see panel on right). Services range from simple advice to inspections using the latest instrumentation including power quality analysis and thermal imaging. We can also provide the BS 7909 defined role of 'Senior Person Responsible' (SPR) at events.

Design

We provide design services for both temporary and permanent installations, particularly the supplies and connection points for temporary systems in buildings (such as theatres, exhibition halls and similar venues).

Training

Several training courses are available including the popular BS 7909 primer for technicians as well as the enjoyable 'electrical theory for lampies' course. Principally we offer the Creative Skillset certificate in temporary power which is currently the only industry recognised assessment for those wishing to work as SPRs under BS 7909.

Can you demonstrate you have taken suitable effective precautions to prevent the risks associated with electric shock and fire as required of the Electricity at Work Regulations? Ask us, we know
