Stay Safe PAT Testing
Stay Safe PAT Testing provides a portable appliance testing service to companies and organisations from our base in South Derbyshire..
We can PAT test all your portable electrical appliances from the kettle in the canteen to the computers in the IT suite.
Portable appliance testing (PAT) is the term used to describe the inspection and testing of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. PAT testing together with user checks can form an important part of your company’s health and safety policy.
The Health and Safety Executive in their INDG236 (rev3) guidelines recommend that all Class I earthed equipment have a (PAT) portable appliance test to ensure the earth connection is sound.
By following these guidelines together with those published in HSG107 (third edition) ‘Maintaining portable electrical equipment’ and the recommendations in the IET Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment we could help your company achieve compliance with The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.
PAT Testing – Entertainers
Calling all DJ’s, Karaoke providers, bands and musicians did you know that without a current PAT test certificate you may be turned away from the venue in which you are booked? While not a legal requirement more and more venue owners require you to have your gear PAT tested.
Stay Safe PAT Testing specialise in carrying out PAT testing for entertainers and can offer preferential rates within a five-mile radius of Swadlincote. We are happy to travel further a field and can offer an out of hour’s service at short notice subject to availability. No job is too small, if you only have a ‘boom box’ or laptop and powered speaker we are still happy to offer you our services.
With the party season fast approaching it has never been a better time to get your equipment PAT tested.
PAT Testing – Landlords
Every year there are deaths and injuries caused by faulty electrical appliances. Statistics show that the public are at higher risk of electric shock if they live in private rented accommodation.
Electrical appliances supplied by landlords should be safe to use. Electrical Safety First recommends landlords carry out regular safety checks on electrical appliances supplied under a rental agreement.
Electrical appliances should be PAT tested and have an up to date PAT test sticker on them, as advised by Electrical Safety First in their tenants safety leaflet.
PAT testing together with a maintenance regime including regular safety checks may help landlords comply with current safety legislation.
