Commercial properties should always keep on top of their electrical maintenance. How regular and effective a company’s electrical maintenance is can, in extreme cases, be the difference between life and death.

Apart from the obvious dangers from poorly maintained electrics, there can be other issues that can have serious consequences. For instance, in the event of a fire, it’s vitally important that lighting is still operating throughout to facilitate people leaving a burning building. With this in mind, businesses owe it to their staff to have their commercial premises properly maintained.

It’s also a legal requirement for any business to have its commercial premises declared safe regarding the installation of electrical outlets. Regardless of whether you use large or small appliances, everything should be checked by competent and professional electricians on a regular basis.

Portable Appliance Testing

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is used to test the safety of electrical equipment. PAT can range from visual checks to a more extensive and thorough technical analysis of equipment. It is the responsibility of all business owners to make sure that they comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.

Emergency Lighting Testing Code of Practice
