Readers, let’s rephrase this. Make sure that you and your premises remain safe at all times. Even if you are conducting business from a prefab installation or temporary wooden structure, it goes without saying that you will have some form of electrical or circuit board installation in place. If you are conducting a temporary on-site project, you will undoubtedly have already utilized the workmanship of a qualified and licensed electrician or electronic circuit board repair, maintenance and installation technician.
So, perhaps this advisory is for the rest of you. You are long time owners of your own property, whether for residential or commercial use. And if you are ‘merely’ a tenant then do not let complacency take hold of you in the expectation or take it for granted attitude that your landlord will attend immediately to any form of electrical malfunctioning, no matter how minor it may seem at the time. As an owner, it does bear repeating.
Take full ownership. While you may not be a qualified or certified technician, you can still play the part of a good risk manager. Those of you who are conducting some form of manufacturing or construction work on your industrial premises should already be fully aware of this risk management tool of trade. When it is time to close for the day, always make sure that all access to electrical installations or circuit boards that do not need to be on are correctly switched off.
Not only are you keeping your electrical or circuit boards and premises safe, you are also saving on unnecessarily used power. And speaking of which, this is something your qualified and experienced technician can get right for you. Allow him to do regular inspection and maintenance.
