When is the Best Time to Do Office Electrical Maintenance

In an office where projects and tasks heavily rely on electricity, it is best to call Eastern Suburbs Electricians to conduct electrical maintenance to ensure the productivity and safety of your employees.

In a typical office set-up, there are computers, photocopying machines, workstations, printers, and other technological equipment to finish project assignments. With frequent usage of these devices, the workplace needs electrical maintenance to ensure that safety of the circuits and the employees as well.  

As a business owner or manager, it is your responsibility to protect the health and well-being of your staff and employees. Electrical threats in an office can cause severe electric shock, burn, or death. Electrical maintenance is the best thing you can do as an employer. Aside from ensuring safety, you can earn your staff’s trust and increase work productivity as your business can rely on the efficiency of the use of electricity. 

And if you are wondering when is the best time to do an office electrical maintenance, here are some indications to look for: 

Old Commercial Building

If your workplace happens to be located in an old building, then licensed level 2 electricians must check its current condition. Outdated wiring systems such as aluminium and knob-and-tube wiring is not enough to meet the heavy current demands of the office equipment. They can cause circuit failures and wire faults that may lead to a fire if you are not careful enough. 

Moreover, the building should follow the AS/NZS 3000:2018 Wiring Rules. One of its provisions states that you must upgrade an outdated wiring system to the current standard — copper wiring or a better cabling material.  

Tripping of Circuit Breakers

Circuit breakers are the modern safety devices that protect all of the circuits from power overloading. Every time a voltage spike occurs, they automatically trip to protect the system from damages. However, through time and frequent tripping, they might cause electrical threats, which can also cause a fire.  

Through electrical maintenance, you can ensure that the circuit breakers are in their optimal condition and free from any faults. Moreover, electricians would calculate the overall load capacity and might suggest upgrading the circuits if necessary. 

Voltage Interruptions

When there are momentary power interruptions in the workplace, and the power supply is not the problem, then voltage dips or swells might be the issue. These are temporary voltage drops and rise, respectively. They occur for a short duration — from milliseconds up to a minute.   

It is common for an office to experience voltage fluctuations as heavy-powered equipment — such as the air-conditioning system and workstations — cause short-period of uneven distribution of electric current. And the most vulnerable to these voltage changes are computers, laptops, and other devices with microprocessors. They are sensitive to small power changes and might cause the device to malfunction. 

Thus, electrical maintenance is a must to avoid costly repairs or purchasing a new computer set. In this way, you can maximise profits and minimise office expenditures.    

Exposed Wiring Connection

The moment you feel unsafe from the electrical system, you should immediately call for electricians to conduct electrical maintenance. In 2015-2016, there are about 92,000 workplace injuries recorded, according to the NSW State Insurance Regulatory Authority. While most cases are from having hand caught between objects, it was followed by contact with power tools.      

Thus, loose, uninsulated, and overhanging wires are actually electrical hazards within the workplace. Accidental contact with them can cause electric shock. And the best way you can avoid them is through electrical maintenance.

Conclusion

Business employers and managers must comply with NSW’s Work Health and Safety Regulation. It includes safety from electrical hazards in the workplace. It is better to prevent accidents than to suffer. Electrical maintenance is the best solution to protect your office from outdated wiring system, tripping of circuit breakers, voltage interruptions, and exposed connection.
