Multi-skilled engineers – how can they help your business?

Managing your business through COVID has been exceptionally tough and after three lockdowns and ongoing restriction changes, it probably feels like your to-do list is never-ending.

We understand that your main priority is keeping your business operating as best it can, so you probably don’t want to cause any disruption in case your means of work is affected.

However, there are some essential fire and electrical maintenance and safety work that requires expert attention at regular intervals for you to comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974), the Fire Safety Order (2005), and other relevant safety standards.

It’s a common misconception that safety testing in your premises causes disruption to your business and your people, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Working with a qualified multi-skilled engineer, like the ones here at Citation Fire & Electrical, could be the answer.

In this article, we’re going to take a look at why working with a multi-skilled engineer is the perfect answer for busy business owners who want to stay safe and compliant, with minimal disruption.

The benefits of using a multi-skilled engineer

  • You only need to work with one engineer, as they’re highly skilled at carrying out multiple services at once – such as Emergency Light Testing and Fire Extinguisher Servicing.
  • Working with just one engineer makes it easier to stick to COVID-safety measures.
  • If there are any issues, a multi-skilled engineer can raise them all with the property manager or owner immediately.
  • Using a multi-skilled engineer is often a more cost-effective option compared to working with multiple people on different projects.
  • You have the peace of mind everything’s been covered in one go, with minimal disruption to your business and staff.
