Your PAT Testing Certificate Report needs to be itemised; it needs to list every item tested and the results of the tests, including electrical readings.
Each item needs to have an asset number that matches the label applied to the unit. It also helps for auditing if the appliance location is noted.
Furthermore the report should include information on any appliances that failed the inspections, why they failed and what action you need to take.
Contrary to popular belief you don’t need a one page “Certificate” but it’s a nice addition, and is handy as an overview document – some clients like to display these in their reception, showing the importance of health and safety.
The itemised list with electrical readings is the important bit. Every PAT Testing Certificate Report we issue includes:
A front cover for the document
A PAT Testing Certificate to show you are compliant
An itemised list of every appliance that passed, its ID number, the tests carried out and the electrical results obtained
A list of failed appliances (if applicable), why they failed and what action needs taking
Guidance on retest periods and other safety measures worth noting.
This document is sent to you by email within 5 working days of the job completing – we can send them sooner, and often do. Same day certificates can be arranged also.
In addition to all this report our engineer will talk you through any suggestions for improving electrical safety, and provide you with a verbal report of what he has done before leaving site.
