A commercial residence relies on multiple systems to stay safe should something go wrong. Whether it’s an intruder, electrical hazard or raging fire, it pays to have the right equipment and processes in place.
Does your business complete routine maintenance on its electrical infrastructure?
If not, then it’s most likely costing you money and jeopardising the safety of your staff.
The benefits of regular maintenance include reducing the risk of interruptions and distractions, lowering electrical repair costs, increased employee safety and an increase in energy efficiency (lower energy bill).
In this blog article, we will discuss what electrical maintenance is, why it’s important, and how it will help your business this festive season and into the next year.
Aging is like a fine wine. This is not something to be said about Papua New Guinea’s electrical infrastructure. Since PNG is a developing nation, upgrades can often be overlooked in favour of new projects.
Plumbers who perform electrical work under their QBCC trade contractor licence are deemed to hold an electrical contractor licence. The Electrical Safety Office is auditing plumbers performing restricted electrical work as part of their business to ensure they are meeting their electrical safety duties.
Electrical contractors, electrical workers and metering providers involved in the roll out of smart meters must ensure that antenna/communication wiring systems are suitably segregated from electrical wiring in accordance with the Wiring Rules.
Live unterminated cables are a serious risk to everyone, not just electrical workers. These cables are often the result of someone failing to ensure all electrical equipment in an installation has been connected. Live unterminated cables can often remain undetected as the usual electrical tests may not always identify them. This is why your visual inspection is essential, and why the Wiring Rules requires it to be performed before conducting further tests.
When you think of a construction site you most likely go straight to the picture of tradies working primarily on building and concreting. But there is a key role that needs to be on a construction site at all times to prevent a lot of potential emergencies and accidents. And that’s an electrical engineer.
An electrical engineer is responsible for ensuring that all configuration and installation of electrical systems are compliant with all safety regulations. At PME PNG we ensure that all of our work sites have an electrical engineer on site at all times. We also work with only the best electrical engineers, so that you don’t have to worry about a thing.
The team here at PME are proud to announce we are again sponsoring the PNG Tennis team, this time to the 2019 Pacific Games in Samoa.
At Port Moresby Electrical, we’re so excited to be celebrating our 50 years of operation in 2018!
We’ve been delivering our electrical and engineering expertise to Papua New Guinea since 1968 and we couldn’t be more proud. With clients from the mining, oil & gas and construction industries we’ve delivered over 1 million man hours without any lost time to injury.
