Quantum Electrical Services Help Reduce Common Workplace Hazards, Austin, Texas

Owning a business of any size can be a big responsibility. There’s a lot to keep track of, and sometimes, it’s easy to overlook the little things. Quantum Electric in Austin, TX, wants to help you stay on top of things, so here are some common electrical hazards to look out for.

One area that tends to be overlooked in most businesses is the break room. This is where appliances such as coffee makers and microwaves are located. It’s very important, especially if the break room is relatively small, to make sure that all appliances are properly plugged in and placed far away from water. Having wires and appliances too close to sources of water is one of the main electrical hazards in the workplace.

It is also important for every business to utilize ground fault interrupter (GFI) outlets, which prevent people from receiving electrical shocks from the faults in their devices. These should be installed throughout the building, but most importantly, in areas susceptible to moisture. Areas that are more likely to retain moisture increase the chances of electrical shocks.

Any electrical equipment being used throughout the workplace should be grounded as well. This will ensure that your office or warehouse is as safe as possible and protected against any unwanted electrical hazards. The licensed electricians at Quantum Electric are committed to offering the highest quality work at an affordable price. They can help make sure your office or warehouse is free of electrical hazards.

If you’re a business or commercial property owner who wants to improve safety at your location, contact the electrical contractors at Quantum Electric at (512) 246-1145 for a free assessment, or visit them online to learn more about their electrical services.
