Legislation introduced under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 places a duty of care on business to ensure that work equipment is safe to use, efficiently maintained and kept fit and suitable for it’s intended purpose.
Legislation of particular relevance to electrical maintenance is:
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (EAWR)
The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment 1998
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
A regular PAT inspection is required by many Insurance Companies and buildings needing Fire Service Certification. (Faulty electrical equipment is a common cause of fires!)
Who We Are?
We are a Nationwide specialist PAT testing Company who offer a fast, friendly and efficient service with disruption to your day to day running of the business kept to a minimum.
What do we do?
We will test every portable item. This means any plugged (rather than hard-wired) item. It includes detachable leads which are tested as a separate item. We will apply labels to every item we test. These will show the prescribed information. If there are things that can’t be turned off, we can, by agreement with you, carry out a formal visual inspection.
We will also supply you with a Certificate and Record of Testing. (A mini assets register) This is an important Document. You should keep it safe in case you ever have to rely on Article 29 or produce it to your Insurers or other Party.
Rather than fail things unnecessarily, for no extra charge, we will normally fit a new plug BS1363 or rewire, if appropriate. We will also change wrongly rated fuses BS1362 for free.
We offer a fast, friendly and professional service and can carry out weekend or overnight work to minimise disruption to your business at no extra charge.
We do work for Schools, Manufacturing, Garden centres and Nurseries, Engineering & Electronic Companies, I.T based Companies, Insurance Companies, NHS, Government Agencies, Banking Institutions, Call centres, TV, Accountants and Legal professionals.
If you require references, we can supply it in whatever industry you are in!
All our staff are "City & Guilds"qualified, worked minimum 3 years in the field or trained "In House."
