why electrical compliance should be your company’s resolution for 2022

The new year is upon us. For most people, that means making new year’s resolutions to improve your personal life, work life or simply your health.

At Volta Compliance, we can’t think of any better new year’s resolution than electrical compliance – here’s why…

Save money

According to a YouGov survey, saving money is a new year’s resolution for a whopping 39% of Brits in 2022. That usually means a few less nights out, making lunch at home, and keeping a keen eye on your outgoings. From a business point of view, however, one of the best ways to save money is by taking a proactive approach to maintenance.

Keeping your electrical system and appliances compliant with EICR checks and PAT testing will highlight small issues before they develop into major problems. As a result, you’ll only need to pay for minor repairs rather than forking out for serious damage or an entire replacement.

Keep your career on track

Work also has its place amongst the most popular new year’s resolutions, with 19% of British people wanting to pursue a career ambition over the coming 12 months. As a business owner or site manager, electrical non-compliance would be a sure-fire way to put a stop to that.

There are a number of laws in place, including The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) or Electricity at Work regulations (1989), which require you to ensure electrical installations and equipment are kept in a safe condition.

Breaching those laws can result in significant financial penalties, not to mention the prosecution or dismissal of those responsible, and long-term damage to a company’s reputation.

Health and wellbeing

Health is another topic that dominates resolutions up and down the country. Improving fitness, eating better and losing weight make up the top three of the nation’s most popular new year’s resolutions for 2022.

While it can’t help you get fit, electrical compliance can safeguard the physical wellbeing of yourself and everyone working on site by eliminating shock risks, fire hazards and unsafe wiring.

On top of that, it can boost the mental wellbeing of anyone responsible for safety at a commercial site. Rather than constantly worrying about outages or accidents, you can rest assured that you’ve taken all the steps necessary to keep appliances and the electrical system safe and fully functional.

That will also minimise the risk of you being disturbed out of hours, meaning you can join the 12% of Brits who intend to spend more time with their family this year!
