When you are employing people in an office or commercial premises, in fact in any workplace you have obvious duties with regard to electrical safety as well as well-established legal guidelines to follow (there are standards set in the EAW Regulations ‘89). These rules and regulations are all about the steps you need to take to keep risks to your employees to a minimum, and within them are guidelines for the installation, servicing and maintenance of electrical equipment and systems.
Some systems which deal with essential safety, such as fire detection, alarm monitors and systems and emergency lighting require periodic checking, testing and maintenance. In larger buildings the practical everyday people and goods transport systems such as escalators, moving walkways and lifts, also need periodic checking and routine maintenance.
From an Insurance point of view you need to keep all of this carefully up to date – if your certification can’t be produced at the appropriate time then insurance policies may not be honoured when you need them to be.
BS 7671 (the IET Wiring Regulations) and the accompanying Guidance Notes discuss the periodic testing and inspection that should be at the heart of any maintenance regime for the premises’ electrical installation.
With a maintenance system like ours, the necessary activity is recorded and signed off by our qualified and certified staff. To gain compliance for fire alarms, and emergency systems we recommend a log book recording regular tests should be utilised. Dates of testings, any problems, and actions to make remedies should all be recorded in it.
In today's economic climate, many organisations are seeking tangible ways to reduce unnecessary expenditure, particularly as they will have to make payments according to their level of carbon emissions (in line with the government's carbon reduction commitment targets). It is therefore prudent and timely to consider installing energy efficient lighting systems supported by regular maintenance programs.
Daylight and occupancy sensors provide a cost-effective solution to traditional installations and there are now cheaper, more competitive installation systems for back office areas. Utilising newer technologies such as the 35W CDM-T lamp can provide substantial energy savings, and with regular maintenance and service regimes, modern lighting installations can reduce capital investment as well as energy costs.
PAT testing is an important part of any health and safety policy. This, in effect, requires the implementation of a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing which we are fully accredited to carry out. This process will help you to meet your legal obligations running a workplace or place of commerce in Britain.
Fixed Wire Testing
Fixed Wire Testing can also be referred to as a Periodic Inspection Report. This is a procedure that is undertaken to evaluate and report on the condition of an electrical installation, to help ensure its safety. This must be done every 5 years, depending on the type of building involved. We are fully accredited to carry out Fixed Wire Testing.
