However, this can lead to various risks and hazards associated with mishandled electrical equipment.

Some common dangers include severe damage to your electrical devices, overloading of sockets, potential explosions, fires caused by voltage overloads, and significant risks to both people and property.

When constructing new buildings, it has become common practice to include pre-installed emergency lighting systems. These systems are designed and equipped according to the latest Building Regulations and local authority standards.

In compliance with the BS5266 ‘Code of Practice for Emergency Lighting,’ it is a legal obligation to install and inspect emergency lighting systems in non-domestic buildings.

Inspections are conducted to ensure that all emergency lights function properly during a power outage, providing clear exit routes in case of an emergency situation.

To meet legal requirements, an Emergency Lighting Inspection should be performed annually to verify the correct operation of the emergency lighting system. Additionally, it is highly recommended to conduct monthly testing by a professional as a precautionary measure for maintaining the lights.

Please note that monthly testing serves as a proactive measure and does not substitute the annual inspection.

Ensuring fire safety in your business is crucial. Our expert assessors conduct thorough risk assessments to identify potential fire hazards within your premises. They guide you on necessary improvements, if required, to mitigate risks effectively.

According to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, all businesses are legally obligated to undergo periodic Fire Risk Assessments that match the level of risk or whenever significant changes occur in the premises, such as use, structure, or staffing.

Once your assessment is successfully completed and compliant with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, we provide you with a safety certificate, assuring that your building adheres to the latest fire safety regulations.

To comply with the law, it’s essential to keep your Fire Risk Assessment up to date. Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, you must have an assessment every six months to maintain code compliance and ensure the safety of your employees during emergencies.

Our team works closely with you to understand your specific requirements and offers tailored quotes accordingly. The Operations Team will communicate with you to finalize dates and handle logistical arrangements, ensuring minimal disruption to your business operations during the testing process.

Are you wondering if Lightning Protection is mandatory in the UK? We’re here to clear up the confusion. Contrary to popular belief, it is not a legal requirement unless identified as a risk during a Lightning Protection Survey conducted for your property.

Determining the necessity of Lightning Protection depends on various factors, such as the likelihood of your building being struck by lightning and the requirements set by your insurance provider.

The process involves installing lightning rods at the top of your building, potentially multiple rods depending on its size. These rods are connected to a high voltage cable that runs along the outer wall and connects to a ground rod buried beneath the ground.

In the event of a lightning strike, the voltage from the shock is safely directed through the rods, guiding it down to the ground.

To ensure the ongoing safety of your property, it is advisable to conduct a comprehensive assessment every 11 months. This assessment covers various weather conditions throughout the year.

During the Lightning Protection Survey, your building’s vulnerability to lightning is thoroughly evaluated, comparing it to other structures. If deemed necessary by the assessor, you may be required to install lightning protection at any point during this assessment period.

Once the assessment is complete, The Elec Group offers detailed quotes for remedial work. Our aim is to ensure your buildings are safe and compliant with lightning protection measures.

As a health and safety professional, ensuring the safety of employees, visitors, and students is of utmost importance. One potential health hazard that cannot be ignored is the risk of Legionella bacteria.

In this blog article, we will delve into the world of Legionella Risk Assessment – its importance, legal requirements, and best practices to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all.

Yes, it is. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 places a legal duty on employers to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of their employees, visitors, and anyone else who may be affected by their activities. 

In addition, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 require employers to conduct a risk assessment for any hazardous substances or organisms, including Legionella bacteria, that may be present in the workplace.

The frequency of Legionella Risk Assessments depends on the complexity of the water system and the potential risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria. For example, a simple hot water system in an office building may only require an assessment every two years, while a complex cooling tower system in a hospital may require more frequent assessments.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends that a Legionella Risk Assessment be reviewed regularly and whenever there is a change to the water system.

It is crucial to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of individuals in both domestic and non-domestic premises, and a legal obligation exists to control the risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria.
