Important tasks for industrial electrical maintenance this New Year
So what does industrial electrical maintenance involve? And why should you think about it? Well, it involves:
- PAT testing- testing your electrical appliances is an important part of taking your electrical safety requirements seriously. PAT testing can help to identify areas of wear and tear and potential issues, before they arise. Keeping your employees and your property, safe.
- Security lighting maintenance- testing your security lights is important to keep your property safe and secure, and identify any potential issues with the light itself. It’s also a good opportunity to clean the casing, and remove any leaves or debris.
- Fire alarm maintenance- your building must have a smoke alarm and a fire alarm system. And this must be kept in good working order for the safety of everyone who works in your property. Electrical maintenance can include thorough testing of these systems to help keep everyone safe.
- Electrical Installation Condition Reports- these test the circuitry and wiring throughout your premises. Any issues with wear and tear or faulty cables can be extremely dangerous and lead to electrical fires and electric shocks. As a result, you should have an EICR regularly to make sure your premises is safe and fit for purpose.
