Reliable supply of electricity from our public utilities to healthcare facilities, grocery stores, manufacturing, supply-line distribution centers, cold storage warehouses, and many other essential operations is critical to our society. That’s why it’s critical to practice basic electrical preventive maintenance.
HSB is here to help you keep your electrical systems well maintained so you can avoid power interruption.
Here are some tips on how you can keep your electrical system up and running:
• Start by keeping your electrical equipment and systems “Clean, Cool, Dry & Tight.” Also, “now” is the critical time to review your PREPARE PLAN and ensure backup power systems are ready to respond in the event of an outage.
• Our Electrical Distribution System Self-Assessment and other Electrical Resources can help you evaluate and perform electrical maintenance. We also offer electrical operation and maintenance training focused on your industry.
• Unforeseen circumstances can require you to retrofit or retool to support critical operations or manufacturing processes. This may require you to add additional or temporary equipment that draws power from existing electrical circuits. While the focus is on critical production equipment, it’s easy to overlook the electrical distribution equipment that’s keeping everything operating. That’s why it’s imperative your electrical equipment and systems are monitored closely to reduce the potential for overload or even failure.
• During idle time, businesses must also prepare for an inevitable “restart.” This invariably will put a strain on people, machinery, and industrial processes. Our engineering and inspection services force is one of the largest in the world, with over 1,200 engineers, inspectors, and technical personnel around the globe. We offer first-class inspection services, loss reduction, and engineering-based risk management consultation for business, home, and farm. CLICK HERE to find out more about how we can help.

That makes sense that you would want to make sure that all the equipment is clean and dry. I could see how water and dirt could cause issues to your electrical system that could damage it. I’ll have to make sure that I inspect al the electronics and wires and such to make sure they are clean and dry, and get someone to help em repair them if they aren’t.
