The Health & Safety Executive states that a quarter of all reported electrical accidents involve portable appliances.

The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers, employees & self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment.

This in effect requires the implementation of a systematic and regular programme of maintenance, inspection & testing.

Inspection & Testing

The IET Code of Practice, which forms the basis for portable appliance testing in the UK, states; those carrying out the inspection & testing must be competent to undertake the inspection & where appropriate testing of electrical equipment/appliances having due regard of their own safety and that of others.

The tester must also have an understanding of the modes of electrical, mechanical or thermal damage to electrical equipment, appliances & their flexes which may be encountered in any environment.

All of our ‘appliance testing’ staff hold the minimum required qualification (City & Guilds Level 3 Certificate in Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment) making us the ideal solution when considering implementing a routine programme of test & inspection.

  • Replacement of plug tops & fuses where required

Severn Groups SLA, our most comprehensive solution, incorporates maintenance and reactive repair for mechanical and electrical services. It provides a best practice approach to Facilities Management and helps organizations to maintain their premises to the highest possible standards.

At the other end of scale, we offer an economy SLA, which for a minimal fee provides an annual gas service plus management of statutory obligations for all mechanical plant.

In modern business, there is an increasing need to have the ability to operate on a 24/7 and 365 days-of-the-year basis, at least in a sense of nurturing the principle that business never stops, even if it is not literally a continuous operation. In order to establish that philosophy businesses, need to build security into their systems to ensure that key services and equipment are always operational and can perform to their optimum capabilities. This is crucial in the industrial sector but increasingly important in the commercial world too, and the best way to achieve this is through a planned maintenance schedule.

While most industrial organisations will have specific assets under a planned maintenance schedule, such as mechanical or pneumatic equipment, compressors, generators, water cooling units, and high voltage electrical equipment, most commercial operations will also have key installations that are integral to the business operating. This means that commercial boiler servicing, air conditioning maintenance and electrical installations also come under a planned maintenance schedule.

At some point, an organisation’s management needs to balance the cost of paying for one-off reactive repairs and maintenance and the implications of any subsequent downtime, against the costs of having qualified contractors looking after a planned maintenance schedule.

The consensus is that in the long term, planned maintenance is more cost-effective than reactive maintenance, but in addition to the obvious benefit of downtime being reduced by machines and equipment being properly maintained, there are several other practical benefits too:

  • A planned maintenance agreement with a qualified contractor will ensure a rapid response to breakdowns, in terms of having engineers on site quickly and in getting the machine/equipment repaired and running swiftly, because the engineers are familiar with the item involved, and have drawings to hand.
  • Machines and equipment will run more consistently and with a peak efficiency of performance through a planned maintenance schedule, because the periodical maintenance ensures parts and equipment are always operating under optimum conditions.
  • Having a planned maintenance schedule with a qualified and recognised contractor means parts will always be available and you will benefit from new technologies.
  • Your assets will last longer and be better cared for under a planned maintenance schedule.
  • Most contractors will prioritise your organisation with emergency call outs, if there is a prior maintenance agreement in place.
