There are many things that businesses need to do to ensure that the environment they create is safe. Some of these are very obvious things, and each individual business will have very unique risks and in turn very unique steps they will have to take to keep both personnel and assets as safe as possible.
However, there are also certain things that almost every business will need to do. One of the biggest threats that is overlooked in business is the danger that electricity can pose in the workplace. Not only may PAT tests be needed, but fixed wire testing will also be integral and it is this latter area that is most commonly forgotten about.
Since we are surrounded by electricity almost all of the time, we can forget just how dangerous it can be, becoming complacent that modern technology has made even the most dangerous pieces of equipment completely safe. However, faulty wiring in portable or even fixed appliances can malfunction at any time and, if left unchecked, can eventually cause very significant issues.
Whilst there is no fixed timeframe for how often electrical testing and inspection should be carried out, talking to the relevant companies should give you some idea of just how often fixed wire testing needs to be done to keep your business safe. Not only will such inspections keep your staff as safe as possible from the danger that electricity can pose, but electrical malfunctions can eventually lead to major fires and, as such, electrical testing and inspection should be carried out regularly to ensure that a small issue doesn’t become a major one and cause harm to individuals and business systems.
