World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers’ Memorial Day 28th April 2015

A Seamless Electrical HANDY HINT: When you’re at work on Tuesday take a moment to remember all the workers globally who have died from a work related injury or illness. In Australia, despite a reduction in numbers over the last decade, 185 workers lost their lives at work last year. By raising awareness of work safety, further injuries and deaths may be prevented. After you have reflected on those workers lost, have a look around and note how important safety is at your workplace. Do you have first aid stations / kits, safety checks, safety procedures in place, up to date safety equipment, regular updates and toolbox talks, safe walkways / tools / equipment / safe structures / offices etc? If not, then begin to secure a culture of prevention at your work … SAY SOMETHING. REPORT IT! World Day for Safety and Health at Work invites you to to join them in building a culture of prevention on occupational safety and health. This preventative culture is one in which “the right to a safe and healthy working environment is respected at all levels, where governments, employers and workers actively participate in securing a safe and healthy working environment through a system of defined rights, responsibilities and duties and where the highest priority is accorded to the principle of prevention” – Safe Day.

April Fools Day + smoke alarms = change batteries

A Seamless Electrical Handy Hint: The WA Department of Fire and Emergency recommends that EVERY home should have mains powered smoke alarms. This means the alarms are wired directly to a 240 volt AC power supply or to a 12/24 volt DC system powered by a 240 volt supply. Mains powered alarms must be installed by a registered Electrician.  Contact us  (Seamless Electrical Services) for safe, reliable and seamless installation. DFES recommends photoelectric smoke alarms for use in the family home. If installed and maintained properly research indicates photoelectric alarms give enough time for occupants to escape fires, compared to Ionisation alarms which is the other alternative. It is recommended the alarms be located in all sleeping areas and in all paths to exits. They are not recommended near bathrooms, laundries and kitchens. The WA Department of Fire and Emergency Services also recommends in multi-level dwellings that smoke alarms be installed on the stairs between levels. Regular testing (refer to the smoke alarm manufacturer’s guide for its testing procedure) ensures the battery and the alarm sounder are functioning and it also assists the residents to familarise themselves with the sound the alarm emits. Suggested testing frequency is no less than once a month. Clean the unit every year with a vacuum cleaner to remove particles. This increases the smoke alarm’s performance. Alarms have a maximum service life of 10 years and need to be replaced after that. Normally a smoke alarm will sound a warning ‘beep’ when the battery needs replacing. However, to be on the safe side … The DFES promotes April Fools Day as a reminder to annually change all our high-quality, long-life smoke alarm batteries. DFES recommends installing 240 volt mains powered photo-electric smoke alarms by a qualified electrician. Contact us.

Keeping down with the Jones

Have you ever wondered how much electricity your family uses compared to your neighbours? Are you keeping your energy consumption down as much as the Jones next door? What about your re-purpose, reuse, recycle, energy saving friends in the next street?  Aren’t you the tiniest bit curious as to how you’d rate among others in the neighbourhood? In case you are … here is a link to an Aust. Gov. electricity usage page (Compare My Suburb Electricity) …  you enter your postcode and the number of people living in your home and it calculates and then reports on the electricity consumption averages for your suburb. The Results Page is presented in kWhs giving your suburb’s averages per day for Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer and an Annual average per day.  The Page also reports on your suburb’s total average kWh’s for Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. Note: It might be handy to have your last bill to compare all the kWh’s and also be aware that the Page does not take into consideration whether the people in your household are male or female, baby or teenager, FIFO or unemployed. However, if you’re keen on making a point to your teenage son who leaves lights on behind him, uses the dryer in summer, is Gaming until about 11 pm most nights, takes forever to decide what to take out of the fridge and then changes his mind …   you’ll find this little link very useful!
