Apart from compliance and regulation stipulations, it’s advisable to inspect your electrical equipment after significant events such as storms, which could affect the functionality of your electrical systems. Also, in the event of an accident that could be linked to a malfunction in the electrical systems, an inspection should be carried out to ascertain the status.
Regular preventative maintenance can help extend the life of your electrical systems, prevent unexpected breakdowns, ensure the safety of your employees, and help you stay compliant with industry regulations.
A preventative electrical maintenance programme typically includes scheduled inspections, testing, and servicing of equipment to identify and rectify potential problems before they become major issues. This can involve tasks like appliance testing and tagging, thermal imaging, RCD testing, emergency light testing, and UPS battery testing and operation.
The frequency of electrical maintenance varies depending on the type of equipment, its usage, and the environment in which it operates. However, it’s generally recommended to have a routine inspection and maintenance at least once a year. Your service provider should help create a suitable schedule for your specific needs.
Thermal imaging is used in electrical maintenance to detect overheating in electrical systems. Overheating can be an indication of excessive electrical resistance, poor connections, or an overloaded system. By identifying these issues early, it can prevent failures and extend the life of the equipment.
A UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) provides emergency power to a load when the input power source or mains power fails. Regular maintenance of a UPS typically involves checking and replacing batteries, inspecting and cleaning all connections, and testing the system’s operation.
RCD (Residual Current Device) testing is a safety measure that tests the device’s ability to protect against electric shocks. Regular RCD testing ensures the device is operating correctly and provides a safe environment for employees and customers. It is a critical part of electrical maintenance and, in many jurisdictions, a regulatory requirement.
