The importance of electrical testing even if your offices are empty

12 November 2020

As a business owner, taking care of your employees will of course be a top priority. Yet with the world as we know it changing due to the Covid-19 pandemic, how we manage our teams has altered too. If your business operations have changed and your team is now working from home it can be easy to let things slip when it comes to maintaining your office. But contrary to popular belief, now is the perfect time to get things ship shape in your commercial premises, and it all starts with electrical testing.

Electrical testing and inspection is a vital part of guaranteeing the safety of your employees and your wider business premises, but why is it still important when your offices are empty? Here we answer that all-important question…

Fulfil your legal obligations

It may not be a legal requirement to complete electrical testing in your office or business premises, but it is your responsibility by law to make sure that all the electrical equipment it houses is in good, safe working order.

Even if your office is empty, chances are it’s still home to many electrical appliances. With electrical inspection and testing, all portable, fixed and transportable equipment can be PAT tested professionally to prevent the risk of failure or injury, and to guarantee safety when it is used again.

Safeguard your business premises

Electrical fires are a real risk, whether you’re currently using your office or not. Make sure you safeguard your business premises and livelihood by reducing the risk of electrical fires with electrical testing and inspection.

Enhance your efficiency

Using your time wisely as the pandemic slows or disrupts your business operations has been the key to survival for many businesses, so why not start with enhancing the efficiency of your workplace?

With electrical testing, you can ensure that fixed installations and equipment are as proficient as they should be. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure! By using electrical testing and inspection, you can minimise repairs or replacements that could cost you an arm and a leg, and subsequently stop business progress in its tracks.

Hit the ground running

When things do return to normal, your business premises should be ready and waiting to welcome back your hard working employees. By undertaking electrical testing and inspection now you can provide your employees with a safe environment to come back to.
