Even if you were responsible for purely office or administrative premises, this responsibility of yours is quite important. If you are the owner of the property, then all the more so. Unless you were the proverbial slumlord, you would be quite concerned about this. It is important for you to keep your premises and/or properties as safe as possible in order to secure your property investments. Should any material disaster affect your business – as in the property you own – the value thereof could plummet.
Change that to will. Slumlords’ property values remains worthless. Usually, these irresponsible property owners have no insurance carriage either. Whether they have vulnerable tenants or hard-working factory workers on their premises matter not an iota to them. But when disaster strikes, the world crumbles and the chickens come home to roost. These property owners lose everything.
Along the way, lives will be lost. Any number of disasters can occur, many of them overlooked. One of those disasters that are overlooked is that of the arc flash. It is hazardous to say the least. Those who run a manufacturing concern, where much power usage is in place, will be at least aware of the need to have at least one arc flash hazard analysis done per annum. But why concern yourself with one risk management inspection procedure per year. Why not do one for every business quarter.
What better way to secure your business. What better way to secure your investments. The inspections required are ideally not being carried out by any one of your staff members or those appointed to look after premises’ housekeeping, but preferably by risk management experts. And in the case of arc flash analysis, you will be utilizing the expertise of technicians appropriately qualified to detect the tell-tale signs of a potential spark.
