We do repair power failures and we fault find for power tripping

The best way to find out if your electrical installation is safe is to have it inspected and tested by a person who has the competence to do so. Aaitt Holdings provide advice on selecting an electrician.

It is possible to do simple checks on your installation, using an electrical socket tester. This is a device that can be plugged into a socket outlet to identify if there is a wiring fault. However, be aware that many types of socket tester can’t detect certain types of fault, and could indicate the socket is safe when it actually isn’t. For further information on socket testers, please contact our team to assist you. 

Electrical equipment should be visually checked to spot early signs of damage or deterioration. Equipment should be more thoroughly tested by a competent person often enough that there is little chance the equipment will become dangerous between tests. Equipment used in a harsh environment should be tested more frequently than equipment that is less likely to become damaged or unsafe.

It is good practice to make a decision on how often each piece of equipment should be checked, write this down, make sure checks are carried out accordingly and write down the results. You should change how often you carry out checks, according to the number and severity of faults found.

A tripped breaker is a nuisance. When it trips, an entire electrical circuit will not work, causing any electrical appliances or devices to not work as well. To fix it, follow the steps below:

    1. Locate your circuit breaker panel.
    2. Locate the tripped breaker. This is indicated by a breaker that is switched to the “off” position (not aligned with all the other breakers) and usually displays a red or orange color.
    3. Reset the breaker by flipping it to the “off” position. Then, switch the breaker to the “on” position (you should here a clicking or snapping noise when it is properly in place).

Aside from account mishaps and electricity supplier problems, ensure that all your circuit breaker switches are up. Should this not solve the problem, check your meter box and its circuit breakers. If the problem persists, Call your friendly neighbourhood electrician.

Lowering your electric bill is not a one-time fix. You must first change your daily habits. Be sure to turn off all lights or electrical devices not in use when leaving a room – like TVs. If you have outdoor lighting, install a timer to make sure it is only on when necessary. If you have a heat pump, electric furnace, or air conditioning system, try keeping a consistent thermostat to so your HVAC system runs for shorter periods of time, ultimately reducing the amount of electricity consumed. Lastly, you can also set your thermostat slightly lower in the winter and higher in the summer to reduce HVAC operating time.

Without the possibility of harm and if there are no obstructions, immediately turn off all circuit breakers and call Aaitt Holdings URGENTLY.

The safety and health of employees must be first safeguarded by measures to eliminate workplace risks at source, through technical or organisational means (e.g by substituting hazardous chemical ) or by providing protection on a collective basis (e.g providing scaffolding instead of harnesses).

In general, PPE is intended to be used by one person. Sharing PPE is not advised. 

 

  • The employer has to make an assessment of the hazards in the workplace in order to identify the correct type of PPE to be provided and to ensure that PPE is appropriate to the risk. Care must be taken in selecting PPE as certain types give reasonably high levels of protection while others,  that may appear almost the same, give relatively low levels of protection. The level of risk must be assessed so that the performance required of the PPE can be determined.
  • In sourcing PPE, the employer must therefore, select appropriate PPE which is user-friendly and which fits the individual employee correctly, after adjustment if necessary.
  • Where PPE is provided employees must be informed of the risks against which they are being protected by the PPE.
  • Employees must also be provided with suitable information, instruction and training (including training in the use, care or maintenance of PPE) to enable them to make proper and effective use of any PPE provided for their protection.
  • PPE users must be trained as regards the wearing, proper use and any limitations of PPE.
  • Managers and supervisors should also be aware of the reasons for providing PPE, its proper use and, in particular, the level of protection afforded.
  • Training, both theoretical and practical, should also cover persons involved in the selection, maintenance, repair and testing of PPE.
  • The level of training provided will vary with the level of risk involved and the complexity and performance of the equipment. For instance, the use of respirator equipment will require a comprehensive degree of training with regular refresher courses, whereas the training for using protective gloves for dealing with hazardous substances may require demonstration only. The frequency of the refresher courses required in the case of PPE for high-risk situations will depend on the nature of the equipment, how frequently it is used and the needs of the employees using it.

There is a duty on employees, having regard to their training and instructions, to make correct use of PPE. Employees should:

  • Use PPE properly whenever it is required to be used.
  • Report any defects in or damage to the PPE immediately.
  • Participate in any training or instruction provided on PPE.
  • nform their employer of any medical conditions they have that might be affected by the use of the PPE provided to them
  • The manufacturer must provide all information necessary so that the user can determine a reasonable period of obsolescence.  However, the manufacturer is not obliged to affix the date of manufacture on the product or on the instructions for use, although some may do this.
  • In general, manufacturers do give information on how to identify the “end of life”, a limiting date of use or a maximum service time.
