As well as our Event Services, we also offer Portable Appliance Testing. This is a routine inspection carried out at regular intervals on movable electrical items, including computers, kettles and lighting equipment. The inspection includes visual checks, earth bond tests and insulation tests depending on the type of appliance.
The Health and Safety Executive states “Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is the term used to describe the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use.”
PAT testing is not, in itself, a legal requirement or obligation. However, current UK legislation states that businesses must maintain electrical equipment in a safe condition. They also have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of employees and the public.
We are offering limited spaces for PAT inspection and servicing of electrical equipment. To include any equipment used on site, power tools and office equipment, we shall travel to you to perform the Portable Appliance Test. A copy of the results will be provided and all equipment shall be marked as pass or fail.
We also offer a servicing and repair service. Some repairs will be able to be carried out on-site, but others may require us to order additional parts. In this instance, we will carry out the repair at our warehouse and will ship the items back to you once completed.
An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is used to identify defects, deterioration, damages and/or conditions which may indicate potential danger, as well as provide recommendations for improvement within a given property.
The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER or LOLER regulations) place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over lifting equipment. This includes all businesses and organisations whose employees use lifting equipment, whether owned by them or not. In most cases, lifting equipment is also work equipment so the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) will also apply (including inspection and maintenance). All lifting operations involving lifting equipment must be properly planned by a competent person, appropriately supervised and carried out in a safe manner.
