What May Require an Emergency Electrical Call Out?

If you are experiencing any of the following, then it is vital to contact an electrician immediately. Faults which are not repaired promptly will increase the risk of danger and may also cause further damage to the electrical system. Some common faults which can be an issue for commercial buildings are the following:

-    Frequent power outages
-    Buzzing sounds
-    Burning smells 
-    Damaged wiring
-    Exposed wires
-    Start of fires

In the event of a fire, contact the emergency services immediately (999) and stay away from the building. 

Prevention of Emergency Electrical Call Outs

Electrical faults can occur at any given moment and cannot always be prevented. However, there are some steps you can take which will decrease the risk of electrical dangers and the need for an emergency electrician. 

Firstly, it is important for businesses to regularly check their appliances, wiring, switches and sockets for damage. Finding these faults and replacing them early will prevent hazards such as shocks and fires. This ensures the safety of staff and visitors. Always instruct a qualified electrician to fix any electrical issues even if it’s a simple job.

Keeping up with EICRs & PAT testing is also important for the safety of your business. Performing an EICR every 5 years and PAT testing annually will help you understand the condition of your electrics and appliances, enabling you to make changes where dangers are present. These are legal requirements and must be instructed by a professional. 

Lastly, avoid overloading socket with multiple appliances. Workplaces require a lot of electrical equipment to function correctly but overloading sockets with extension cables can increase the risk of shocks and fires. Extension cords should only be used for a short period of time. If your building needs more electrical outlets, then make sure you get additional sockets professionally installed to reduce the risk of hazards. Always make sure to use a qualified and experienced electrician for any electrical work to ensure they are installed correctly and safely.
