The IET Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment requires that appliances are listed with the appropriate electrical tests defined and confirmation of equipment passing or failing.
The register provides proof that appliances have been maintained in accordance with current legislation. It is the document that is required to demonstrate that a “Duty of Care” has been undertaken to minimise risk to employees from electrical appliances.
Reduce risk, comply with duty of care and legislation.
TestSafe are a PAT Testing company, based in Burton upon Trent, with over 15 years’ experience. As proven PAT Testing experts in Burton we help clients manage their maintenance of electrical appliances, ensuring compliance with health & safety legislation.
TestSafe offer dedicated Portable Appliance Testing, or PAT Testing as it is more commonly known throughout the midlands.
Our client base numbers over 1500 customers, ranging from mobile DJ’s & through to Blue chip companies, based in and around Burton, Derby, Stafford, Tamworth, Nottingham, Leicester and the East & West Midlands.
We attempt to repair or re-wire appliances where possible, rather than fail appliances. Many companies will fail equipment as it allows them to complete the job more quickly, however this is false economy for the client as they must spend more on replacing assets.
TestSafe also help companies determine frequency of testing, based on a “risk-based assessment”, that is recommended by the Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) as detailed in their “Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment – 5th Edition).
We have eight dedicated engineers, many of whom have been with us for more than ten years. This ensures that they get to know our clients, and this makes life easier as they are familiar with site layouts and are trusted to work safely and methodically with minimal disruption.
All engineers have an Enhance DBS Check and are technically qualified to C&G 2377 Level 3 for the Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment.
For your complete piece of mind, we are regularly assessed by NAPIT (National Association of Professional Inspectors & Testers), who audit our Engineers for technical capability and our internal procedures for technical compliance.
