It is for this reason that you should turn to us at UK Safety Management Ltd, as we are the top PAT testing team Bristol has to offer.
Our team performs expert electrical PAT testing in Bristol, helping you meet electricity at work regulations and reduce your insurance premiums. PAT testing is a specialised process that goes into detail, ensuring that your electrical appliances are safe to use and working correctly.
What Exactly Is PAT Testing?
PAT testing refers to portable appliance testing, and this is the visual inspection and testing of the electrical appliances in your workplace. These tests make sure that all these appliances are working correctly and safely, and it is the legal responsibility of a business owner to ensure these tests are carried out.
One of our PAT testers will test your electrical appliances for any potential faults, including insulation resistance, earth continuity, and lead polarity. This is a speedy, cost-effective, and efficient process, which ensures the safety of your appliances. A PAT test can aid in reducing your insurance premiums, by acting as a risk assessment aid.
What Is Included in a PAT Test?
PAT testing refers to portable appliance testing, so any portable appliance or equipment in your workplace will need to be regularly tested to ensure its safety. Essentially, if the equipment uses a flexible wire or cable to connect to a power supply, it qualifies as a portable appliance and will need to be checked.
This includes anything from extension leads to vending machines, but wireless appliances such as cordless drills don’t require a PAT test. However, the battery chargers, which plug into the wall in order to charge the equipment, do require PAT testing.
During a PAT test, our engineer will be looking for many potential faults with the equipment, including earth continuity, lead polarity, and insulation resistance.
Why Having a PAT Test is Crucial
PAT testing is a process by which the electrical appliances in the workplace are inspected for safety issues. As such, it is crucial to have PAT testing carried out on a regular basis, as it improves safety in the workplace and can even reduce your insurance premiums as a result.
The government also has regulations in place to keep businesses and people safe. The UK Health and Safety Executive and insurance companies will require you to have PAT testing carried out in order to comply with various health and safety regulations, such as:
The Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations of 1999
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations of 1998
Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974
Essentially, under the portable appliance testing law, all employers, landlords, and anyone who is self-employed is required to ensure that all of their portable electrical appliances are safe and suitable for use.
Costs Surrounding PAT Testing
The cost of portable appliance testing can vary on each job, as PAT test costs are calculated per device, not for the entire testing service. As such, the size of the business, and the amount of electrical equipment that needs to be tested, can affect the overall price of the service.
However, the more testing that is required, the cheaper the cost will be per item, so it can pay to have more electrical appliances tested at the same time.
Here at UK Safety Management Ltd, we aim to be upfront and transparent with our prices, which is why we offer free quotes for PAT testing in Bristol. We will gauge how many electrical appliances you need to have tested and provide you with a free quote upfront.
How often should PAT testing be carried out?
How often should PAT testing be carried out? depends on several factors, including the equipment type, where it’s being used, and the manufacturer’s recommendations. Typically, PAT testing is completed every two to four years in low-risk environments, but high-risk site owners might want to have this testing completed more often. The team at UK Safety Management can provide you with expert advice if you’re wondering how often you should be having PAT testing carried out on your electrical appliances.
Spotting Counterfeit Goods with PAT Testing
In some cases, people end up with counterfeit electronic appliances that can significantly diminish health and safety. It’s essential to find out whether you are dealing with authentic products, which is something that can be determined through PAT testing. Spotting counterfeit goods with PAT testing is a practice at which we at UK Safety Management excel.
