Facilities Management

As the employer:

It is your responsibility to ensure that all your building services are compliant with current legislation. From electrical safety (portable equipment, fixed appliances and the building’s fixed wiring) to water hygiene and gas safety. Ignore the issue and you’re putting your workforce at risk as well as your premises.

Let's cut to the chase about being fully compliant:

Trying to manage your business and meet all your compliance obligations often means you go round in circles. Your business is under additional pressure in today's challenging economy to cut costs. It’ll usually focus first on facilities and operating costs. It’s a real concern meeting the reduced budget targets, while keeping your facilities legal and operational. Keeping on top of legislative compliance issues alone (including proper records) is a minefield. Building compliance is a very important element in any facilities maintenance contract and every employer is responsible. Let Sustain FM lead you safely through it. Here are just a few of the areas in which our dedicated, in-house fully trained teams provide complete peace of mind:

  • Fire Alarm Testing & Recording
  • Fixed Wire Testing
  • Emergency Light Testing
  • Electrical Testing & Inspection
  • Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
  • Water Hygiene Compliance
  • Gas Installations Certification / Testing & Inspection
  • Refrigerated Gas – F Gas
  • Lifts
  • Pressure Vessels
  • Lighting Protection
  • Earthing
  • Pest Control
  • Access Equipment
  • Generators
  • COSHH
  • Mansafe Systems
  • Extract Fans
  • PUWER Regs

Electrical Safety

Here's the hard sell for employers.

Most accidents and fires in business premises are started by either a fault in the building’s electrical equipment or the fixed wiring system.

The effects can be devastating. Negligence could result in fire, electrocution, injuries and death.

You could suffer lost income, fines and may even have your insurance invalidated. As the employer, it’s your responsibility to ensure that all electrical equipment and systems are safe. This embraces portable equipment (such as toasters), fixed appliances (like hand dryers) and the building’s fixed wiring (which needs retesting every 5 years). Ignore the issue and you’re putting your workforce at risk as well as your premises.

Timely inspection and testing of electrical systems by SustainFM will help to ensure compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and the Fixed Wiring BS7671 IEE Wiring Regulatory Standards.

KILLER STAT: According to the HSE, 1,000 people are injured and 25 are killed every year through electrical accidents in the workplace.

Timely inspection and testing of electrical systems helps you ensure compliance with the Electricity at work regulations 1989 and the Fixed wire BS7671 IEE Wiring regulatory standards.

Negligence could result in fire, electrocution, injuries, death, lost income, fines and may even invalidate your insurance. Sustain FM provides a complete accredited electrical safety testing service in inspection and testing of portable appliances (PAT) and installation fixed wiring and periodic inspections.

Our services are delivered by IEE 17th Edition, City and Guilds qualified operatives directly employed and trained by Sustain FM, providing the support and advice you require.

On completion you will be provided with professional, detailed certificates or reports for your records. We are happy to review your existing information and provide advice on any electrical compliance requirements.

Gas safety and compliance from Sustain FM is governed by ACOP Gas Safety regulations, 1998. All our operatives are accredited gas safe engineers, giving you the service and peace of mind you expect.

We provide records and certification to confirm compliance with the legislative requirements and British standards, ensuring your employees’ safety at all times. Companies who use refrigerated gases in air conditioning or stationary refrigerated equipment are required to retain F gas registers for their site.

TM44 statutory requirements for inspection of air conditioning systems increase your documentation and certification responsibilities. Sustain FM is happy to advise you on all aspects of these requirements and provide an effective solution.

Does your office drinking water leave you with a bitter aftertaste?

These days, the health and wellbeing of staff in the workplace isn’t just desirable, it’s a legal necessity.

In all, there could be as many as 28 waterborne threats having a field day in the water concealed in your building’s DEAD ZONES.

If that toxic soup is sucked back into your main water supply, you and your staff will soon know about it.

Understanding the legislation is pivotal to protecting your employees from risk of disease from Legionella, Cholera, Weil’s and Cryptosporidium to name a few; diseases with potentially devastating consequences.

There are two ways you can find the DEAD ZONES in your building. Either wait until disaster strikes and clean up the mess afterwards. Or launch a pre-emptive strike with a full system audit from Sustain FM, so you’re not sharing your water supply with potentially life-threatening bacteria. Surely you’d drink to that?

Computer & IT Cleaning

Some computer keyboards harbour more harmful bacteria than a toilet seat, research has suggested. Consumer group Which? said tests at its London offices found equipment carrying bugs that could cause food poisoning.

Out of 33 keyboards swabbed, four were regarded as a potential health hazard and one harboured five times more germs than one of the office’s toilet seats. Microbiologist Dr Peter Wilson said a keyboard was often "a reflection of what is in your nose and in your gut". During the Which? tests in January this year, a microbiologist deemed one of the office’s keyboards to be so dirty he ordered it to be removed, quarantined and cleaned. It had 150 times the recommended limit for bacteria - five times as filthy as a lavatory seat tested at the same time, the research found.

The equipment was swabbed for bugs, such as those that can cause food poisoning like E.coli and staphylococcus aureus. Dr Wilson, a consultant microbiologist at University College London Hospital, told BBC Radio 5 Live sharing a keyboard could be passing on illnesses among office workers. He said "Should somebody have a cold in your office, or even have gastroenteritis, you’re very likely to pick it up from a keyboard".

Which? said one of the causes of dirty keyboards was users eating lunch at their desk, with crumbs encouraging the growth of bacteria. Poor personal hygiene, such as not washing hands after going to the toilet, could also be to blame, it said. Sustain FM can offer a full keyboard cleaning service to your business.
