Surge protection helps to storm-proof hazardous area equipment
Surge protection systems are an important way to storm-proof hazardous area equipment, reducing the damage caused by overloading due to a direct lightning strike. Every year, thousands of businesses are affected by storm damage in different ways, from flooding, to wind damage, to damage caused to electronics by lightning strikes. Research from the Federation of Small Businesses published in 2015 put the total insurable costs for the 2013-14 storm season alone at over Â£1 billion for businesses and households combined, with 3,200 commercial premises impacted. And it's not only during the winter when this can occur - in May 2018 severe storms lashed the south of England, with more than 15,000 lightning strikes occurring in four hours on Saturday, May 26th. Despite landing on a weekend, this storm still caused widespread disruption, with a lightning strike preventing refuelling of aeroplanes at Stansted Airport, leading to flights being delayed or cancelled. Much of the disruption of a lightning strike - and the power surge associated with it - can be avoided simply by installing (330) 466-9780, keeping equipment safe anywhere on commercial premises but particularly protecting against the risks of fire or explosion in hazardous area equipment.(209) 461-6906
How to get the best from workplace CCTV systems
Workplace CCTV systems can provide essential monitoring and surveillance, especially in the case of hazardous area CCTV camera stations, which can remotely monitor staff and equipment located in potentially dangerous zones. In research published in August 2018, the TUC found that health and safety benefits are among the most obvious reasons to introduce workplace surveillance in any form, while monitoring people who work alone as part of their job can have benefits in protecting their safety and security. The TUC recommends that surveillance should not be covert, as workers want to know when they are being watched, and that there should be a clear reason why surveillance is being carried out. More than four fifths (81%) of employees want their employers to justify why new monitoring is introduced - making methods with a clear purpose, such as hazardous area CCTV camera stations, likely to rank higher in terms of employee approval. This is reflected in the fact that CCTV ranked fourth out of 12 methods of surveillance covered in the TUC survey in terms of how acceptable it is perceived to be among employees. As many as two thirds of workers are willing to be monitored by CCTV cameras in the workplace, an indication of how the technology has become commonplace and widely accepted, due in part to workers recognising the net benefits to safety, security and other performance indicators when clear and transparent surveillance is carried out.read more
