There are about 12,500 electrical fires across the UK each year. Many of these could have been prevented with a properly installed and well maintained electrical system. Put simply, professional management of your electrical systems will save lives.
If you’re the manager, director, landlord, owner or guardian of a commercial or industrial property then under the Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989, it’s your responsibility to ensure that the electrical installation is safe and well maintained.
This responsibility begins with the installation and commissioning of any electrical systems during the building or refurbishment of the property.
However, all cables, switches, socket-outlets and any electrical equipment will deteriorate through usage and time, so they all need to be checked regularly and necessary replacements or repairs made, before they pose a risk.
Also under the “Electricity at Work Regulations 1989” you have to provide ongoing evidence that the installation is being operated and maintained safely at all times.
It’s a big responsibility!
Failure to do so can have serious consequences for your organisation, the health and safety of everyone using the installation and you personally.
So how do you ensure you’re compliant, safe and well maintained at all times?
