PAT Testing Safety Brochure


Electrical Health and Safety Law:
It is a legal requirement that you as an employer have to maintain, inspect and test all portable electrical appliances at regular intervals.
The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 places such an obligation where any appliance used by employees and/or the public should be regularly inspected and tested what ever type of environment it is being used in.
Having your equipment, inspected and maintained is an important step towards satisfying your legal duty of care to protect employees and customers from harm in the workplace.

Asset Log and Test Result Data:
Upon completion of all testing we issue a full asset log along with a set of comprehensive test results.
The documents are stored on our server and clients can log in to view, print and save them. They remain on our server for 10 years and so over time the test results can be used to ascertain the frequency of your testing and the frequency can be changed from the recommended time frame set by the Health and Safety Executive to suit the location, usage, age, damage/faults found at each time of testing etc.

Non Compliance:
Non Compliance can lead to fines, jail terms or both, for directors and key personnel if a staff member or third party is injured, either severely or fatally.
Section 2 of The Health and Safety Act 1975 and The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, Page 10 Regulation's 3 and 4 requires employers and owners of public buildings to maintain by a regular programme of recorded inspection and testing by a competent person so far as is reasonably practical.
