Many deaths and injuries result from poorly maintained electrical equipment and fires started by faulty electrical appliances.
Around 1,000 electrical accidents at work are reported to the Health and Safety Executive each year, of these, 30 people die of their injuries.
Company directors, proprietors, managers and landlords have a legal responsibility to make sure that all electrical equipment is maintained to ensure it is safe and in good repair.
Litigation and Prosecution
Two words which every business should avoid. Yet every year companies, businesses, sole traders, guesthouse and hotel owners go to court due to civil/criminal negligence cases involving death or injury due to faulty electrical equipment.
Government statutes such as the Electricity at Work Regulations 4(2) state:
"As may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger."
The only way such businesses can show that they have taken every care in their legal obligation to prevent danger to their staff, employees and/or members of the public is to undertake PAT testing as a matter of policy.
All work is carried out in accordance with NAPIT (the National Association of Professional Inspectors and Testers) and NICEIC (National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting) regulations.
All of our site inspectors are qualified with the required City and Guilds level 3 Certificate for the Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment Based on the IEE Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment.
