Read his latest blog post.
It's been a good few weeks since our last website blog post and while we do intend to keep our blog post updates regular sometimes our busy job schedule just takes over and rightly our attention is focused on delivering a high standard of work as well as customer service.
One of the jobs that we have been focusing on was the installation of a new commercial fire alarm system as well as emergency lighting at a church near Stirling.
Our team of electricians and engineers did a fantastic job installing the systems to not only help protect the users of the building but the cabling and equipment was installed unobtrusively keeping in mind the nature of the building.
Our electrical, fire and security services can help you meet various health and safety regulations and we would be delighted to help with your requirements so please contact us.
Some photos of our fire alarm and emergency lighting installation job are below.
Every electrician whether they work at a company or self employed who undertake work in or around your home or business property in Scotland should have a valid SJIB ECS grade card.
If they don't have a valid grade card then there is a very high risk they are not qualified to current electrical regulations or health and safety awareness.
Every proper electrician will carry their current valid grade card with them to every job so make sure you ask to see it before they carry out work.
Don't Risk It. #ElectricityCanKill
The below blog update is a guest post from Kenny Muir of Westfarm Windows which highlights the dangers of DIY work and gives advice on how to prevent injuries. We thank Kenny for his post and infographic which is good timing just as the Easter DIY craze begins.
The dangers of DIY- know your safety precautions
DIY is great fun, not only does it allow you to unleash your creativity in your own home, but it also gives you a chance to save money on those home improvements too.
The only trouble with DIY, and it is often one thing that people forget, is that it can at times be dangerous, as the infographic below from Westfarm Windows shows. This is why it is vital that anyone who is going to be carrying out some form of DIY follows the correct safety precautions.
These vary from the simple, to those that relate to particular projects. To help you to stay safe, we have put together some of the most important safety precautions for you to take.
General precautions for any form of DIY
When carrying out DIY you will need to wear suitable clothing. This means that you should avoid loose fitting clothes, and never wear any jewellery that could pose a risk of getting caught.
The place that you are working in should be clean, well-organised and well-ventilated if you are working side. Especially if you are working with anything that is going to cause dust, or lets off any fumes.
You should always take your time and never rush through. Concentrate on the task that you have in hand and try not to get distracted with other things that are going on.
Just in case, you should have a well-stocked first aid kit nearby, and always try to have someone else around when you are undertaking any DIY project that could cause an injury.
Use the right safety equipment and tools
It is vital that you always wear the right safety gear when taking on any DIY project. This includes a dust mask, goggles and gloves. However, you may also need to cover your clothes with overalls to keep everything clean and tucked away.
If you are using tools for the DIY project then you will need to have all the right tools for the job, not only this but you will need to be familiar with the tools to. If they are electrical then you should always turn them off and unplug them when they are not in use. Drills in particular should always be off when changing the parts, and take care to remove the chuck key before you turn the drill back on.
Tools should always be kept in good working order. You may not know that sharp blades are actually safer than those that are blunt.
DIY, when carried out safely and with the right tools can be incredibly worthwhile. The satisfaction that you can feel after completing a project yourself is well worth the hard work that you will have put in.
Just remember, when carrying out any type of DIY work, it is vital that you keep yourself safe and try to avoid any injury that you are at risk from.
I'm delighted that we have won two contracts over the past week that will have our electricians travelling to all corners of Scotland over the next few months carrying out electrical testing work.
Our work includes fixed wiring, emergency light and fire detection testing and we may be able to get some more cracking scenic photos on our travels.
It was pleasing to receive feedback from two customers on Bank Holiday Monday about our service and electricians.
Had 2 of your guys here today installing power from house to shed out the back. Can I just say what a great job they have done. Very neat and Tidy ( felt bad as when they first arrived it was raining very heavy )
Instructed SES to install landlord smoke and heat detectors, extra sockets, new water heater controls and carry out EICR for my rental properties. They do a fantastic job and are very accommodating when I am not in Stirling that often. Their work is second to none with excellent office staff - Leigh in particular, making sure all work is carried out and updating me very quickly if I have any questions. Will continue doing business with them in the near future.
