Essential maintenance tasks to ensure that your workplace remains safe for use

Whether you work in an office block or on the factory floor, your workplace can have some hazards that could place you and your workforce at risk. At the very least, these hazards could result in your premises being an uncomfortable place to work, and could even exacerbate serious health issues amongst your staff. Fortunately, however, with a bit of regular maintenance you can eliminate these hazards and create a safe and comfortable working environment for all. Read on to find out more about some essential maintenance tasks to ensure that your workplace remains safe for use.

Invest in an air conditioning and filtration system

If you work in a manufacturing facility or workshop, you are likely to come into contact with noxious fumes and harmful dust particles in the air that could make you and your workforce ill. As such, an air conditioning and filtration system is essential for an industrial workspace in order to clean the air and ensure that it is safe to breathe. However, a robust air conditioning and filtration system will also be highly useful for an office, especially as employees return following long periods of working from home due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. This is because airborne pathogens are removed from the atmosphere before they can be breathed in.

Carry out elevator inspections

Your elevator puts in many hours of work each day, especially if you work in a building that has many stories. As such, it can experience a lot of wear and tear that can result in operating malfunctions and lengthy breakdown times. No one wants to arrive at work sweaty and out of breath after climbing several flights of stairs carrying a heavy briefcase; or risk being stuck in an elevator for hours before being rescued. ATIS carry out ATIS elevator inspections and will run diagnostics on your elevator system in order to stay ahead of any problems before they escalate and result in lengthy and inconvenient periods of downtime.

Clean the flooring

Flooring can become a huge safety issue for any business premises if it is left unmaintained. Spilt water on vinyl surfaces can be difficult to spot and can cause falls, as can ripped carpets. Likewise, dirty flooring can be unpleasant to work around. Clean your flooring at least once a day, either before or after working hours, using an industrial vacuum cleaner and floor polisher. Clean and mop spillages as soon as they appear to prevent falls, and place a warning sign around damp surfaces.

Improve the lighting

Artificial office lighting that is too strong can be painful to look at and result in eye strain and migraines. Try to reduce your workplace’s reliance on artificial lighting by drawing back blinds during working hours and positioning desks around large windows. If you do use ceiling lights, change to lower-wattage eco-bulbs, or LED lights. These put less strain on the eyes, therefore reducing the risk of migraines and making your office a more comfortable environment to work in.
