Pat Testing Taunton

Covering Taunton, Somerset
Benefits Investing in PAT testing can minimise the legal risks for managers while maximising productivity by ensuring reliability and safety of equipment used. It also enhances preventative maintenance and helps to track down your assets. It reduces your liabilities, insurance expenditure and improves the safety of both the general public as well as work place safety. Uses Portable electrical appliances that are intended for connection to a generator or a fixed installation through sockets, plugs and a flexible cable have to be maintained and tested regularly for safety reasons. Portable appliance testing and PAT testing equipment help to protect customers, clients or employees from potential fire mishaps, burns, electric shocks and other such kinds of accidents. Portable appliances, like everything else in the world, are subjected to the wear and tear associated with frequent use and the results are damaged casings, incorrect fuse rating, broken leads and so on. Not only do they lead to work place accidents, many customers experience accidents or electrical shocks because of failure to maintain the portable appliances they have bought. Sometimes the accidents are caused due to lack of testing. PAT testing is necessary for compliance with UK laws and insurance company requirements, for protecting your workers as well as visiting clients on your factory premises, for protecting your company against legal court proceedings and for protecting your company’s goodwill and integrity. Since one quarter of all the electrical accidents can be traced back to malfunctioning portable appliances, purchasing a portable appliance testing kit makes a lot of sense. You can protect against both expensive law suits as well as serious injury. Features Portable appliance testing equipment boasts of features such as test date, test status, user, locations, sites, test record memory, PC connectivity, barcode reader, parallel printer port, printer, RFID brain cell scanner and optional thermal printer. We use High quality PAT testing equipment sold by reputable companies are calibrated entirely every single year and reading fluctuations are recorded at early stages, allowing them to be flagged.

There are many good reasons to carry out pat testing:-

  • Compliance with the very latest health and safety regulations
  • Risk of fire and injury from portable appliances is minimised
  • Compliance with ISO9000/1 and BS5750
  • Satisfy the requirements of your insurers – if you’re not sure about this check the small print on your employer’s liability policy!

But probably the most compelling reason to have your equipment checked is to consider the likely consequences if you do not have the testing done and one of your staff were to be killed or injured!
