Our custom compliance packages contain the following maintenance works for the following services:
Have an air conditioning maintenance plan in place. Frequency depends on the weight of refrigerant.
Check for leaks
You’re responsible for stopping leaks from your equipment.
Contractors that install, maintain or dispose of equipment share responsibility for trying to stop leaks with the operators of the equipment.
You must check all equipment for leaks.
For equipment that contains F-gas above certain thresholds, you must check for leaks at specific intervals.
Thresholds at which leaks check intervals are specified
The thresholds at which leak check intervals are specified are expressed in terms of CO2 equivalent.
They take into account both the quantity of F-gas in the equipment and the ‘global warming potential’ of the F-gas (how much the F-gas contributes to global warming).
This table sets out the:
Maximum interval between leak checks
All commercial gas appliances to be inspected annually.
A valid Legionella Risk Assessment in place. These are valid for 2 years. Monthly testing of water temperatures.
A ‘responsible person’ should be identified and suitably trained.
Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 1988
The System must undergo a 3hr drain down test on an annual basis after which a level of 1.0 lux, is required at floor level for defined escape routes. Monthly temperature tests are also recommended.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
All lightning conductors and earth grounding installations should be visually inspected and tested at regular fixed intervals, preferably not exceeding 12 months. The testing is carried out to BS 6651.
Section 5 of the Electricity at Work Act 1989
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 - The Regulations simply state that all electrical systems must be maintained in a safe condition at all times. This can be achieved by an effective maintenance regime and cyclical testing.
For all commercial buildings, the fixed wiring installation must be tested every 5 years and portable appliances testing (PAT) annually.
These can be huge for you and your company, ranging from a fine to imprisonment. These maintenance activities have been proven to save lives and reduce injury. Hence why they have been written into law.
