MY PAL HAS STARTED WORK FOR A COMPANY THAT HAS LOTS OF CONTACTS WITH LOCAL HOUSING ASSOCIATIONS ( 1000s of properties) HE IS DOING EICR’s & minor remedials eg cracked socket sets replacement)HE WAS DOING 5 a day at a max push but was told he needs to do 8 a day as a min . The paperwork is done on a pad by engineer at time of test. He has been told that he won’t have a job long if he can’t do 8 properties a day . Surely this can’t be right . The company is NICEIC accredited. Is it even possible to do 8 a day even if 10% of accessories have to be checked .

Assuming the houses are within walking distance of each other, and the occupant is standing at the door ready to let him in
and any furniture and other obstructions have been moved
and dogs and other household pets have been locked up out of the way
and any children have been locked up out of the way
and the occupant isn't standing over him asking questions but is available to identify where all sockets switches spurs outside lights etc are

No chance.

Either it's the same company or other companies doing H-A properties have the same modus operandi as I'm certain I've seen at least one post similar to this before.

Best advice it to keep plodding away doing the number he (or she) feels happy with, whilst looking for another job.

That is ridiculous! I wouldn't do more than 2 in a day at a push and that would be a good hard day! You won't find much wrong ar be able to do the required samples in an hour! I would find something else! Wouldn't even consider putting my name on a report unless it had been inspected properly!

So the MINIMUM requirement is 8 EICR's / day and the minor remedials, what a totally unrealistic and unreachable target if they are done properly, I doubt you could do it if you used all 24 hours in the day

I'd be walking out and would make sure the NICEIC got to know about it and if declined to do anything about it my next call would be UKAS to ask why the NICEIC is allowed to operate under their accreditation scheme

Ask him to put the threat in writing or shut the hell* up. If he is stupid enough to do so forward it to the NICEIC.

These bullies actively employ people low in confidence and experience and exploit them.

They're scum because when TSHTF they'll be pointing the finger at the man who signed the cert, a bad apple, rogue, lone wolf who'll be sacked and "lessons have been learnt"

* I think this really warrants the full weight of a f*#k.
