The law states that employers must take responsibility in making sure that the electrical equipment and wiring in their commercial premises is safe. If you don’t have this equipment regularly inspected and maintained, it could lead to fire, electrocution or fatal accidents. DS Electrical can identify any faults in your consumer unit / electrical wiring, to make sure you are compliant with all legislation and that your employees are protected from any electrical hazards.
It’s also a requirement that you have fire alarms installed in your commercial property and have them regularly maintained. Fire and smoke alarms are extremely important as they can detect fire, or toxic gas that is polluting the air in your property. In order to keep your employees and customers safe, you will need smoke detectors installed, and have them regularly inspected to monitor their efficiency. These alarms can be the difference in an emergency and will help save lives.
PAT (Portable Appliance Testing) is the term used to describe the inspection and testing of electrical appliances and equipment in your commercial premises. This test is conducted to ensure that the electrical appliances are safe to use, as a visual examination can detect faults that cannot be detected by testing alone. PAT testing is not compulsory, however the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 states that an employer must ensure that their electrical equipment is maintained in order to prevent damage. It is also suggested that an electrical examination is carried out regularly, between a period of 6 to 12 months.
DS Electrical Services offer PAT testing to commercial properties throughout the Essex area, to maintain and identify any electrical faults or potential dangers. Our team of fully qualified electricians will deliver a thorough inspection, which will ensure that there are no dangers with your electrical equipment and that it’s all safe to use. If you need your electrical equipment inspected, contact DS Electrical Services today, and we’ll provide you with a free quote.
Faulty electrics can be a serious fire hazard, that can lead to injury, electrocution or fatality. Rewiring is the procedure of installing new wiring to a property, when the current wires are not safe and are a hazard to your employees and the public. We advise that you have the wires in your commercial property regularly tested, to check if they need rewiring. If you are thinking of buying a property that is more than 25 years old, we suggest you check that the property has been rewired within the last 25 to 30 years, as chances are they will need to be upgraded to be compliant with current building standards. If the newly purchased property needs to be rewired, we recommend that you do this before decorating the property, as this process can be very disruptive to the fabric and decor of your commercial premises.
Our electricians are able to rewire all commercial buildings, to make sure they meet current standards and are safe. This will protect you, your employees and your customers from fires that may occur and electrocution.
