PORTABLE APPLIANCE TESTING A LEGAL REQUIREMENT
HEALTH AND SAFETY AT WORK ACT SECTION (2)
As you may or may not know, it is now the EMPLOYERS/ LANDLORDS duty to maintain all plant (portable appliances), with regards to section 4 of the IEE Regulations 17th edition. Examples of portable appliances are such things as computers, photo copiers, kettles, irons etc. Not only do the majority of insurers insist on it, but it is also now law that all appliances must be tested, labelled and logged on an annual basis. This new act is no longer a recommendation it is the LAW and is enforceable by large fines therefore PAT Testing is an absolute must.
JHP Electrical Services have the latest computerised equipment that carries out every PAT test necessary without any chance of damaging the internal circuitry. This ranges from 110volt machinery to all IT equipment. A full detailed log of all equipment tested, with notes attached where necessary if any equipment has been changed or improved is printed out as the test certificate.
Remedial work can also be carried out where necessary to ensure that the item will pass PAT testing.
