2013 is over and it’s time to get back to work in a new year! And while losing weight and eating right may be at the top of your priority list, it is still important to remember safety and security as we march further on into 2014. In celebration of National Office Safety and Security Week, TLC Plumbing is sharing our favorite ways to maximize utility safety and efficiency at your place of business.
The Safety Checklist
Whether you work in a factory or a law office, a safe work environment is crucial to maintaining comfort and productivity. Wherever your business may be, try to start a safety checklist that you can survey periodically. You can include these items:
- Are electrical cords free from damage? Are there too many devices plugged into power cords?
- Can all windows and doors be secured?
- Do employees know what to do in case of a fire?
- Are air vents and screens properly providing quality air?
- Ensure no electrical wires or extension cords are routed under carpet, where they can be damaged and become frayed.
To ensure that everyone is prepared for an emergency, you may want to display a diagram of emergency exits and the location of fire extinguishers in the office. Also, make sure those smoke detectors are working regularly!
Water Safety in the Workplace
While some businesses hardly use water at all, others use it heavily in their daily work. If your business uses water, make sure that all equipment gets regular check-ups. Also, water quality can affect your product. To ensure that your treatment system is operating at maximum effectiveness, perform regular water tests.
TLC Plumbing performs free water tests on commercial water systems. We are water treatment experts, providing thoughtful evaluation and professional solutions to maximize efficiency and effectiveness.
Air Quality Safety
Here in New Mexico, we have some old buildings. Our state capital actually is the oldest in the country! Even so, older buildings are more likely to have less effective ventilation systems. This can seriously affect air quality and should be checked regularly.
TLC Plumbing is a licensed commercial HVAC contractor. Our experienced technicians can check the air quality at your business and recommend HVAC solutions that will continue to circulate clean, refreshing air. All you have to do is contact us! We’ll give you a free quote.
Here at TLC, we are excited to get back to work and make this year even better than the last. We hope you feel the same! Be happy, safe, and secure!
