When it comes to any working environment, it is rare that you are not needed to use electrical equipment. There are often hazards that go unnoticed in some businesses. An electrician can make sure you are aware of any dangers to you or your colleagues. Electrical shocks and burns occur from contact with live parts, being injured as a result of exposure to arcing or faulty electrical equipment and explosions caused by unsuitable electrical equipment are all hazards that should all be very apparent.

Risk Assessments

As a business owner, you are responsible for the safety of your employees. So, you need to make sure the electrical equipment operated is safe. A risk assessment is the best way to ensure there are no possible dangers. The assessment covers who can be harmed by electrical hazards. What the risk level is and how it has been established and the precautions within the business which have been taken to control the risk. Also, you should make sure that the electrical equipment is suitable for its intended use and what conditions it is operated in. Ensuring that it is solely being used for its intended purpose. A risk assessment should be carried out by an experienced and well qualified electrician.

It is extremely important that all the electrical equipment and installations within your business are maintained. Preventing danger and giving you piece of mind. Users of portable appliances will be able to notice if there is something wrong, e.g damaged wire, plug etc. If you become aware of a situation in which a cable has been repaired with tape or there are burn marks/stains present, repairs will be required. These repairs should be carried out by qualified individuals such as electricians. Also, you should make it a priority to arrange regular inspections and tests for fixed wiring installations.
