Contacted re faulty external light. He arrived at time given. After examining the light explained and showed us the fault in the system. Offered to repair it. I asked if he could fit a motion sensitive light. He said he could and offered suggestions how he could install a new light and remove the existing light and metal trunking. The work was carried out efficiently. At all times he was polite and friendly. I would highly recommend this company

Everything You Need To Know About Minor Works & What's Included In Them


Minor Works: What Are They?

Minor works, also known as non-notifiable work, are electrical tasks that are less serious or significant in maintaining any electrical system. These jobs are usually done by electricians or even trained staff. In the same way, minor works are often requested by people who want to get updates and changes on the electrical fixtures inside their home


So, What Is Included In Minor Works?

This category of electrical work can include a wide range of tasks. Minor electrical work typically involves some of the following tasks:

  • The replacement of lights and lighting switches
  • Checks to sockets and plugs
  • Fault finding (testing the operation of electrical equipment to determine if it is safe and functioning properly)
  • Fuse box tripping
  • Additions or alterations to an existing circuit on a "like-for-like" basis, et cetera.

However, a licensed electrician is able to deal with all these types of electrical work.


Crucial Points About Minor Works

One of the most common "minor work" tasks is the extension or alteration of an existing circuit or like-for-like replacements. These types of jobs can be done in any room of the house that is not designated as a special location.

However, some areas of the house are designated as "special locations". With one exception, this means that any work done in one of these locations becomes non-minor. The only exception is when you replace something like for like, such as a downlighter, with a suitably rated equivalent. The bathroom is the only special place you are likely to find in the vast majority of houses. Swimming pools and saunas are two others you may come across.


Example Of Non-notifiable Electrical Work (Minor Work) In A Domestic Home

The placement of socket outlets is one of the most common changes people make to their living rooms and one of the most popular minor works. To eliminate extension leads trailing everywhere, these are either relocated to a more convenient location or additional socket outlets are added. Adding new socket outlets to the existing circuit is frequently the simplest way to accomplish this, provided the existing circuit is suitable.

Assuming the circuit is a ring circuit, there are several approaches you can take. If the circuit was a ring circuit, the most straightforward approach is to add new socket outlets where you want them and run a new cable back to the nearest point of supply.
