As one of the country’s leading commercial electrical maintenance companies with over 30 full time nationwide engineers responding to the maintenance requirements of our clients, our dedicated team takes care of just about every aspect of compliance relating to electrical maintenance.
In fact, today, we are responsible for electrical maintenance and compliance at over 9,000 sites across the UK.
We assist you with regulatory compliance and keep your electrical and emergency systems working effectively and efficiently. This is essential in order to ensure your business continuity and compliance with UK law and regulations.
We take a proactive approach to electrical compliance ensuring that areas of risk are identified and your potential problems addressed; either on the spot or through a written quotation. We make sure your people get a safe, secure working environment and you have peace of mind. It's worth remembering, the consequences of non-compliance include invalidated insurance, reduced safety and increased risk of dangerous occurrences such as fires.
Appliance in Use tests (also called Portable Appliance Tests, or PAT) are not a legal requirement, but the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (EWR1989) require that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition.
The requirements of EWR1989 can be met by the performance of in-service inspection and testing which consists of 3 activities:
This involves regular visual checks by users themselves, or formal visual inspections. In higher risk environments, formal visual inspections should be combined with physical testing by a qualified technician with the right equipment and training.
Performing maintenance or, if necessary, replacing the defective item of equipment (depending upon the results of the in-service inspection and testing).
3. Keep records
Although the Electricity at Work Regulations do not require the keeping of records, up-to-date information can be a means of showing that a maintenance scheme exists.
Greenlite Group's Lighting Maintenance team can carry out this service for you at set regular intervals to ensure you are kept within the statutory requirements. We also carry out a full asset register to ensure that you are fully aware of the equipment you have on each site.
All products supplied by Greenlite Group are also fully tested to ensure they comply with all current electrical legislation such as the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. As part of our scheduled maintenance programme, all appliances are again tested in use and fixed or replaced where problems are identified.
Greenlite Group can provide fixed price plans to companies in order to assist with maintenance budgets.
We have now introduced Thermal Imaging as a service to assist with electrical compliance.
A Thermographic Survey enables you to detect electrical faults before the components fail. Loose connections and load imbalances that are not always apparent or detected by conventional checks such as routine maintenance or periodic test and inspection which can lead to a build-up of heat and fire, can be identified using thermal imaging cameras. This is a non-intrusive, proactive and efficient method of supplementing your planned preventative maintenance regime. And because it's non-intrusive, it's fast and efficient, and the survey is carried out by one of our experienced engineers.
