Being based in the agricultural heartland of Suffolk gives our team wide experience of working on agricultural installations, where animal welfare is a prime concern, and conditions can be arduous for equipment and wiring with a mixture of liquids being present as well as extremes of temperature.
As well as helping you to meet legal obligations relating to the safety of yourself, your employees, customers and visitors, regular, planned inspection and maintenance of your wiring and electrical farm machinery can help you to avoid potentially costly breakdowns and disputes with insurance companies, mortgage lenders or relevant public bodies.
As in the 'Electricity at work act 1989', it states that as a 'duty holder' you have a 'duty of care' to maintain the electrical installation and equipment to ensure it is safe for others to use.
Services that we can provide to help you do this are:
