The benefits of working in a safe environment are obvious. What is not always obvious is the full extent of the tasks that must be carried out to ensure that safety – to protect your staff, customers and the public and to ensure that you comply with all legal and H&S requirements.
AWL can provide you with portable appliance testing; fixed appliance testing (something that is often overlooked); and fixed wiring electrical testing (also referred to as ‘condition reporting’ – previously called ‘periodic testing’), an important inspection of your building’s wiring structure and maintenance.
These tests will highlight any existing or potential problems you may be unaware of, ensuring your legal compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations Act 1989, Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 and BS 7671 (IEE Wiring Regulations 17th Edition as amended). They will reassure you and your employees that your electrical system is safe and importantly, they will satisfy your insurance obligations too.
Cleaning and re-lamping light fittings
Whatever your lighting scheme, regular cleaning and attention is needed to ensure not only maximum energy efficiency but also compliance with statutory requirements around light levels in the workplace. Lighting systems are often overdesigned to accommodate an expected lack of cleaning. A US study* has shown that if cleaning became a regular part of lighting maintenance, lighting systems could be downsized, resulting in considerable savings. Let us help you take care of this routine but essential part of your maintenance regime.
