Portable appliance testing (PAT Testing) or the In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment is an essential part of any maintenance program.
“As may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as reasonably practicable, such danger”.
PAT testing is proven to be the best way to safeguard your business, employees & visitors safety within your premises. A regular preventative maintenance program also ensures that all reasonable steps have been taken to comply with current health & safety legislation.
Furthermore, it can also prove you have not been negligent in cases where claims arise against your business or where you need to claim for insurance in cases of loss or damage.
An electric shock can kill or seriously injure and this is one of the hazards that electrical safety legislation is intended to protect against.
The legal duty is to ensure that if danger would result, electrical equipment must be maintained to prevent such danger. Inspection and testing are the means of determining whether maintenance is required and your risk based assessment should include the following to determine the frequency of testing:
The equipment construction
The equipment type
The frequency of use
The type of installation methods
Our engineers are trained to test all types of appliances from domestic 240v appliances and sensitive IT equipment, 110v tools, 16 & 32 Amp commercial equipment and 415 volt 3 phase industrial equipment.
You will receive a full report detailing the locations and types of appliances tested providing you with an asset register and certificate.
In addition to the City & Guilds 2377-22 qualification our engineers undergo extensive in-house training providing invaluable experience in identifying extremely dangerous counterfeit goods.
As a result, 1 in 3 UK residents have mistakenly purchased a counterfeit product online and 1 in 7 have suffered damage or loss as a result of fake electrical goods. The results can be deadly.
Counterfeit and sub-standard goods undermine legitimate manufacturers and retailers whilst increasing the risks of fire or electric shock due to substandard manufacturing and quality.
Explosions and fires caused by lithium-ion batteries have resulted in billions of pounds worth of damage and even deaths.
