PAT Testing / Electricity at Works
According to the Health and Safty Exective, there are approximately 1,000 major electrical related injuries reported each year. These can involve burns and electrical shocks and of these injuries around 30 of them are fatal.
Portable Appliance Inspection & Testing
Employers must maintain their electrical equipment in order to prevent accidents. The majority of equipment defects can be found by a detailed visual inspection. For example a detailed examination by a trained person is likely to eliminate hazards caused by plug or cable damage, or other signs that the equipment's condition could create faults, or a danger to users. However, a visual inspection alone will not identify all dangerous faults, therefore a visual inspection needs to be linked to a testing program to reveal less obvious electrical faults such as earth continuity, insulation integrity, earth leakage.
Specific legislation relevant to electrical maintenance is a follows;
Health & Safety at Work Act 1974
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999
Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations1998.
Minor faults found during the course of the inspection can be repaired as we find them and the appliance re-tested.
