As the Coronavirus pandemic continues and lockdown eases, it is critical that your electrical systems are safe and suitable for use, ready for when your workforce returns, and you operate through the ‘new normal’.
If your business is currently closed, or is operating at reduced occupancy, then this is an ideal time to review your electrical safety and presents a fantastic opportunity for us to undertake electrical inspection and testing works with no or minimal disruption to your business.
We can support you in becoming compliant with health and safety laws such as the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 and as we do, we’ll ensure we keep our employees and our customers safe.
To discuss your business requirements, all our office staff have the capability to work from home and are utilising video conferencing software where we can schedule an online meeting. We are operating a proactive approach to government guidelines and have implemented the following:
- Detailed Risk Assessments centred on COVID-19
- 2-meter distancing rule from others
- Delivered additional vans to our field teams, ensuring they can travel separately and maintain social distancing
- Additional PPE available
- Antibacterial gel and wipes to enforce regular hand washing and cleaning of equipment
We have also asked all staff if they feel unwell and are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 that the must not come into work and follow the relevant isolation measures.
Please remember that Electrical Fixed Wire Inspection and Testing is statutory maintenance and duty holders have a legal responsibility to ensure, as far as reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all employees to matters within their control. If your electrical inspection and test is out of date, not only will this invalidate your insurance but can also pose a serious risk to your company and people if electrical dangers or failures are present.
If your electrical installation is due to be tested, now is a great time to secure your place with us. We’re happy to discuss your requirements and can offer our customers greater flexibility by providing a tailored programme that suits your business, as no two sites are the same.
Our regular clients are already taking advantage of this opportunity and our order volumes are starting to increase, therefore, if you do have a requirement please speak to one of our team members to ensure that we can have the required level of support in place to suit your business needs.
