As title, im looking for some advice, my mother has recently took over a hotel and as premesis manager she is responsible for having safe electrics ect.. anyway when she took over the building was a shambles the wiring was/is horrendous and it needed saftey testing, so the test was carried out an we was left with a number of c2's and c3's that needed to be rectified before a certain date, now as she doesnt own the building and isnt responsible for renovation of the building i advised her to contact the owner.to get the work done.. anyway the work has apparently been done by a qualified sparky.. now im far from it and this screams dangerous to me.

Photos attatched and its inspection day again tomorrow and im pretty confident it will fail. Am i completley wrong or is this dangerous?ImageImage

It does not work how you think it does, and it looks ok from here. (Except the labels are wrong, (and pointless) they should say RCD, and a list of what each MCB protects would be nice)

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

Thanks for the reply, although i must say i thought they would be loaded more evenly, something is certainly wrong somewhere as the breakers keep tripping 5/6 times a day

You will have a low neutral earth resistance on one or more of the circuits. This trips the RCD. There is no overload.
