PAT testing Leicester – TestSafe are a portable appliance testing company covering Leicestershire with over fifteen years’ proven experience. As portable appliance testers we help customers manage their maintenance of electrical appliances, ensuring compliance with health and safety legislation.
PAT testing for Leicester businesses
Current legislation, Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER), requires that electrical equipment has to be safe for use, maintained in a safe condition, and regularly inspected to ensure it is correctly installed and safe for the operator to use. PAT testing or portable appliance testing (Plug testing or PAC testing) is the way that companies can comply.
PAT testing ensures that equipment is visually inspected, to ensure that there are no bare wires, cracked plugs or damage that could lead to electric shock or fire. Also, electrical tests are completed for insulation and earth bonding. The electrical tests are documented in an asset report or register that provides certification and proof that the equipment has been maintained in accordance with current legislation.
Directors and business owners have a “Duty of Care” to their employees. A risk assessment determines the regularity of testing and this is important to ensure the working environment and type of equipment are fit for purpose.
A green pass label or a red fail label is applied to the equipment to show that it is safe to use or should be repaired or disposed of.
