PAT Testing from Intex Property Maintenance
If you run your own company or manage an organisation, then it is your responsibility to ensure that you comply fully with the Electricity At Work regulations. PAT testing, or Portable Appliance Testing/Electrical Appliance Testing is an essential part of keeping your property or premises safe, as over time, electrical appliances can become worn and pose both an electric shock hazard and a fire risk.
With a proper maintenance schedule in place, you can prevent appliances becoming unsafe, and by carrying out regular PAT testing on all of your portable appliances, we can help to ensure that your workplace is as safe as possible.
Why Do Your Appliances Need Testing?
During the PAT test, all electrical equipment that can be moved about (i.e portable appliances) and which connects to the electrical supply via a plug and socket will need to be checked. Here are a few of the reasons why it is essential that you invest in Portable Appliance Testing:
- To adhere to the Health & Safety At Work Act 1974.
- To comply with the Electricity At Work Regulations 1989.
- To minimise fire risks and electric shock hazards.
- To avoid any disputed insurance claims for fire damage due to poor electrical maintenance.
- To meet the requirement of the ISO 9000 Quality Assurance Standard to comply with Health and Safety requirements.
- To maintain the safety of your employees, visitors and clients.
PAT testing should be carried out annually, but the frequency of the tests depends on the type of workplace and the way you use your appliances. If you can’t see any labels on the electrical equipment in your premises, then PAT testing is probably required.
The cost of PAT testing depends on how many pieces of equipment need to be tested, and whether we need to work out of hours to be flexible to your business. We aim to disrupt you as little as possible during the test, so you can keep working without any worries of costly downtime. To arrange a PAT test at your premises, contact us today on 01933 356731
