Electrical inspections: reducing the risks

With electrical distribution being the main source of ignition in commercial fires (across England, Scotland and Wales), there is an ever-increasing risk of property damage and personal injury.

Electrical wiring

Electrical preventative maintenance

Preventive maintenance is not a new concept. People have been doing precautionary work on motors, engines, and other mechanical systems for decades. However, too many people mistakenly think a lack of moving parts means little can go wrong with electrical systems.

Electrical transformer

Transformer oil testing

Transformer oil testing is a key part of any preventative maintenance programme and should be conducted on a regular basis. Consider it an early warning system that helps set priorities, schedule work, and arrange for outside services and order parts and materials.

Lightning storm

Protecting equipment from lightning

Lightning and voltage surges can stop a business operating in an instant. Without warning, electrical damage from a voltage surge to telephone systems, computer networks, security and building management systems or bespoke equipment can inhibit a company's ability to continue operating normally and securely.
