The most important reasons for carrying out Portable Appliance Testing are:
– To comply with The Electricity at Work Regulations
– To comply with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations
– To minimise the risk of fire and injury caused by electrical appliances
– To comply with all Health & Safety requirements and ISO standards
A portable appliance is any piece of equipment that can be moved from area to area and reconnected to a power supply, normally via a plug.
This includes 240v, 415v (3 phase) and 110v systems.
No. Our employees are fully trained to cause as little disruption as possible.
Equipment will need to be turned off, but only one at a time for less than 3 minutes.
If you prefer, KJB PAT Testing do offer an out of hours service, including nights and weekends – normally for no extra charge!
KJB PAT Testing will supply a complete list of all items tested. On this list it will state the items barcode (Also on sticker placed on item) the items location and item description. The list can be printed, put on CD or Emailed. This can be supplied daily, weekly, monthly or on completion. Also we can supply tester generated certificates. These certificates can not be forged so you know everything you have been charged for has been tested. It’s very easy for PAT Test companies that use older testers just to ‘slap’ Stickers about.
For your information the date of next test due will be displayed on sticker placed on item. However a Month before your testing is due KJB PAT Testing will contact you to arrange the necessary tests to keep you up to date.
