Safety Management for an Electric Fleet

Upgrading your company’s fleet to EV will largely reduce fuel and maintenance costs along with emission. This is a significant stride towards sustainability for many organisations. Along with the cars themselves it is important to develop a robust charging infrastructure: This increases efficiency, minimises downtime and ensures uninterrupted availability of vehicles.

When selecting a charging network, consider factors such as user-friendliness, compatibility with your fleet, and scalability to support future expansion.

Implement a thorough inspection and maintenance schedule: 

Regular maintenance checks and safety testing of the charging units and it’s infrastructure are crucial to extend the lifespan of EVs and avoid the risk of electric shock or electrocution. Monitor the health of EVSE Charging units as part of routine maintenance, ensuring optimal performance and preventing safety hazards. It is important to include comprehensive inspections of the EV fleet components, and the charging infrastructure to maintain safety, functional performance, and reliability.

By focusing on these safety essentials, you can ensure a reliable and secure electric fleet that is always ready for operation, minimizing risks for employees and maximizing the longevity of your EVs.

McIntosh Electrical Tips on Electric Car Safety

Electric vehicles (EVs) are powered by electricity stored in batteries, eliminating the reliance on gasoline seen in traditional vehicles. While EVs offer numerous safety advantages, it is crucial to acknowledge the associated risks that come with new technology. To ensure a safe experience, the following safety precautions should be strictly followed when operating an electric car:

Compliant to Industry Standards

Use a charging station that adheres to industry standards and is OCPP1.6J Compliant. Complying with these standards guarantees the highest level of safety and compatibility.

Safety Precautions

Exercise caution when handling charging cables to prevent potential electric shocks. Carelessness in handling the cables can pose a risk.

Visual Checks for Damage

Stay vigilant for warning lights or abnormal sounds emanating from the vehicle. If any issues or anomalies arise, it is important to cease driving immediately and assess the situation further. By following these safety precautions, electric car users can enjoy the benefits of clean and efficient transportation while minimising any associated risks.
