One of 2013’s big projects

“The level of professionalism and care throughout the electrical

installation provided by A Coole Electrical during the shop fit of our new

Electrical branch in Grantham was exceptional. The attitude and care

shown by their team along with the communication to ensure that the fit

out wasn’t delayed enabled our branch to open a week early. I would

willingly recommend them for any further installations and thank them

for all their hard work and dedication whilst working on our branch.”

PAT Testing – Yorkshire

 

What Is PAT Testing?

PAT also known as Portable Appliance testing is a way of ensuring that all electrical appliances are well maintained and are not going to be of risk to employees.

Portable Appliance Testing, although not a legal requirement, ensures the safety of those who use the equipment. Many insurance companies will require that all electrical appliances are tested frequently to reduce the risk of accidents due to faulty appliances.

In line with The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 & The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974,  Employers must protect the safety of all employees including the use of electrical equipment (Electricity at Work Regulations Section 4) “(2) As may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger.”

All appliances tested will be issued with a sticker showing whether it has “Passed” or “Failed” along with a retest date. If any appliances do fail the PAT then the employer is notified so that it can be dealt with in order to prevent any accidents in the workplace.
