Portable Appliance Testing Specialists
Ensuring electrical appliances in a workplace are safe, is crucial – a faulty appliance can lead to a fire or give someone an electric shock, worse still it can kill!
Safety in the workplace is a priority for every business, to ensure their staff and other users are safe – a safe working environment is a happy environment.
The current regulations require all portable appliances in the workplace continue to meet strict safety standards – there should be no compromise on this – Portable Appliance Testing conducted by us at regular intervals will help to ensure you remain compliant.
Fixed and Built In Appliances
Not all PAT engineers have the capabilities, and few companies carry the equipment to test fixed and built-in appliances which gives us an edge over them; we are able to test appliances where the plugs are no accessible, where others would simply put a sticker on with little evidence to support that it is safe.
Appliances that don’t comply with the regulations
Regular inspections and tests of portable electrical equipment will help you maintain safe standards in your equipment, as portable appliance testing flags up faults which an engineer can fix, it may find appliances that have been recalled to the manufacturer and it will find and remove dangerous equipment.
Intervals between tests determined by the risk
Whats more, our PAT engineer will be able to advise you on improving safety in your workplace by conducting on-site risk assessments and showing you where equipment safety can be improved, but also by advising you of the best course of action for interval periods until the next phase of inspections and or testing.
