Sales figures, growth plans, people management, commercial strategy…if you’re running a business, you’ll have quite a ‘to do’ list.
Which is why micro-managing compliance and maintenance of the building services at your premises is not just an extra headache you could do without, but potentially also a distraction that could keep you away from your core business and scupper your work/life balance.
The problem is, building services compliance is not an optional, nice-to-have tick in a box; it’s a vital part of your due diligence that safeguards your business, your property and the health and safety of everyone in it.
Mandatory tests and checks, regular servicing and routine maintenance protects your business against downtime from faulty electrics, heating or air conditioning etc. It also protects your people, your assets and your reputation from potential health and safety risks such as carbon monoxide, legionella or electrical fires.
While major problems are rare, if compliance and routine maintenance are allowed to slide, they can happen. Moreover, smaller problems, such as faulty fuses, underperforming heating systems or non-compliant air conditioning can lead to business interruption or costly asset replacement requirements if left unchecked.
The bottom line is that there is no substitute for peace of mind. And if you outsource management, maintenance and compliance of your building services to a third party expert, you can be confident of a planned and well-resourced approach to testing, mandatory checks, maintenance and repair.
