How many people does changing a lightbulb take?

It sounds like the opening to a cheesy joke. Or even a very simple task to look after yourself. But, changing a lightbulb is something which should be taken seriously. This is especially the case when it’s a lightbulb which is part of a complete solution at a commercial premises. This could be anywhere from a shopping centre to a restaurant, a warehouse or a factory.

Changing a lightbulb is actually a very specific procedure if it’s not performing as it should be. As well as functionality, it is about ensuring it’s the best possible choice for your location in terms of performance, energy efficiency, legal compliance and the latest lighting trends.  

Lighting solutions providers must adhere to the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 which protect everyone every step of the way. Engineers must be given regularly refreshed training, be fully competent and, of course, legally compliant. So, you know you’re in the safest possible hands for changing a lightbulb, or any other job required, in fact.

Here’s a little guide to just what goes into the deceptively simple process of changing a lightbulb when it comes to commercial lighting solutions.

First things first when changing a lightbulb

Changing a lightbulb itself can be pretty simple, we know that. But, the stuff that happens around that task may not be. It’s not a case of standing on a chair and hoping for the best, like some of us may do at home! Health and safety needs to be a main consideration. Speed is everything to ensure that there’s no downtime from your lighting solution. An expert lighting team must also be able to tackle any situation they are presented with. This all needs to be legally sound – both within our perimeters as a company, but also for the venue being serviced too.

Then, it’s about putting these wheels into motion:

One step further than changing a lightbulb

We love meeting with our clients. We’re a personable bunch here at PLM and we pride ourselves on providing a professional service with a smile. We also always want the best for our clients. So, if we spot something which could be made better in your commercial lighting solution then we’re happy to chat it through with you. For example, current trends, such as LED lighting, can capitalise on cutting costs and reducing energy use with the correct lighting solution.

There’s a number of ways PLM can look after all this for you. We can either partner with you to provide ongoing maintenance and support on a regular basis. Or, we can be there for you just when you need us on a pay-as-you-go basis.
