As is the case with residential properties, regular electrical maintenance is a must for any commercial building. It is an often overlooked aspect of owning a commercial property but it is imperative that regular maintenance is executed. There is a greater duty of care in maintaining a commercial property due to the employees that work there and to visitors that may have access. Any business will have obligations to ensure the safety of those people on-site and to maintain a minimum safety standard.
Regardless of the age of the building, scheduled electrical maintenance must be carried out to ensure the integrity of lighting systems, power points, emergency exits, redundant power systems and surge protectors, to name but a few.
In case of emergency, all commercial properties must possess emergency exits. All exit and emergency lighting must be tested and logged at 6 month intervals to remain compliant. Failure to have clean, well-lit emergency exits that occupants can use to vacate the premises, can have disastrous consequences in the event of an incident.
Elecorp can provide a qualified electrical contractor to assess the health of the electrical systems in your commercial property. Working alongside you, we can create an ongoing maintenance schedule to ensure your building remains safe and OH&S compliant. Here at Elecorp we believe in being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to electrical safety. It is often far more cost effective to diagnose and remedy electrical problems early, rather than wait for problems to arise and face potentially crippling expense. We also offer a test and tag service to ensure even your most basic electrical appliances remain safe for employees and visitors alike.
