Proper grounding and bonding systems are critical for keeping your facility and workers safe. Just like all systems, your electrical system needs proper care and maintenance to continue supporting your operations. Ground resistance and continuity testing can uncover potential failures in the grounding system, and our experienced team can help you resolve these issues. A grounding audit from Interstates will leave you with steps to avoid lost production time, enhance machine longevity, protect your employees, and give you peace of mind. 


We make sure there’s a good path to ground for energy to dissipate, avoiding dangerous electrical shocks and protecting your workers.


Grounding audits are an important part of electrical preventative maintenance programs and help keep equipment like metal detectors and motor bearings in working condition.


Having a good ground connection makes equipment and instruments work properly. 

Keep Your Crew Safe

Electrical shocks from a fault can range from a minor scare to devastating loss of life. Grounding audits can help prevent this concern from happening. With a thorough system assessment and electrical troubleshooting, we’ll find problems in your grounding system that cause potential hazards. Our grounding system evaluation will leave you with measures you can take to improve your system. 

When you’ve corrected the issues our team finds, you will have peace of mind knowing you protected your employees by making their workspace safer. 

Increase Machine Longevity

Your equipment may be degrading without you knowing it, and without proactive maintenance, these situations are easily missed. A poor ground connection can lead to motors pitting or fried electrical equipment.   

During a grounding audit, our team conducts ground resistance and bonding testing to find static buildup and identify high resistance issues on your system. By identifying known grounding points such as nearby metal, gear, or ground whips, we can find issues and give you a plan to fix them. You’ll have equipment that lasts longer, allowing your plant to remain in production. 

Improve Operational Reliability

Grounding audits ensure that electrical systems and equipment are properly grounded, which helps prevent electrical failures and subsequent production shutdowns. By identifying and addressing potential grounding issues, these audits improve the reliability of electrical systems, reducing the likelihood of downtime and saving time and money in the long run.

Grounding Severity Guidelines

Determining Your Ohm Readings

There’s a purpose to rules, that's why the NEC and IEEE set limits for ground testing. We’ll report the ohm value of each test point and identify the severity of each reading. See the table for Interstates' recommended readings.
