We’ve previously detailed how, due to lockdowns and COVID-19 restrictions, Midlands-based businesses have never been more in need of heightened security. With lower staff numbers on sites, and business units left un-staffed for longer periods of times, there’s a firm argument for reviewing and enhancing security systems.

Like all businesses throughout the UK, those across the wider Derby, Nottingham, Mansfield, and Chesterfield area must demonstrate that they comply with an array of electrical regulations. Compliance to regulations not only satisfies the law, but tells all those who use buildings, electrical items, and equipment that a business is responsible, professional, and caring.

The last few months have been tough on us all. If you are running a business, or even contemplating starting one up, you would ideally be spending the vast majority of your time figuring out ways to generate profit and appeal to more customers.
