A regular schedule of Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) is a wise investment for business owners.
PPM is designed to prevent sudden costly repairs and electrical downtime by maintaining your electrical systems and equipment. MJF Electrical work with you to design a programme of PPM that suits your needs and tailor it based on the electrical demands of your business. For example, a low-risk office space in a newly wired building will require less maintenance than a large industrial warehouse situated in older premises.
Many businesses adopt a reactive approach to electrical repair, only dealing with an issue when it arises. This can be dangerous, a faulty electrical setup can cause electric shocks and/or fires, and result in costly repair bills and unnecessary business downtime. A proactive approach to electrical maintenance is a sensible choice for all businesses including:
- Schools & Colleges
- Retail premises
- Pubs, bars and restaurants
- Hospitals and medical facilities
- Industrial units
What are the advantages of Planned Preventative Maintenance?
PPM allows you to spread maintenance costs over a longer time period and avoids sudden costly repair bills. The spend required on maintenance is often much lower than when things go wrong and whole systems need replacing.
Regular maintenance can usually be carried out without disrupting day-to-day business activities. Breakdowns or significant electrical repairs can lead to lengthy shutdowns whilst work is undertaken.
Employers have a duty of care to ensure all electrical equipment is safe and well maintained for its intended use. If a fire or other serious injury was caused due to a faulty appliance or electrical system, you could be liable to pay a substantial financial penalty or even sentenced to 2 years imprisonment.
