  • Management of PAT Testing
    So there s the first question for you Did you know that all of your staff have a responsibility towards electrical safety By bringing in a PAT Testing company to look after your PAT Testing doesn t absolve you and your staff from your basic electrical safety duties PAT Testing isn t a legal requirement but making sure your electrical equipment is safe to use certainly is How do you know your electrical equipment is safe to use The most convenient way is to carry out PAT Testing PAT Testing or In service Inspection Testing of Electrical Equipment as it should be known was developed in 1989 as a means of ensuring that electrical equipment in the workplace is safe to use as defined by the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 It also ensures that there is a set standard which should be met irrespective of who carries out the PAT Testing for you PAT Testing doesn t always need to be carried out every year Who told you that you have to get your PAT Testing done every year Your manager Your PAT Company Your mate in the pub How and when you look after your electrical equipment in the workplace is entirely up to you the Duty Holder PAT Testing should follow a risk based process You need to look at the work environment the equipment users the amount of use the equipment gets how the equipment has been made etc Once you have assessed the risks you can determine how often you should inspect and test your equipment You may still need a bit of guidance so click here to see some suggested re test frequencies for different work environments Whether you decide to bring in a PAT Contractor or carry out in house PAT Testing as the Duty Holder you should have a thorough understanding of the PAT Testing process We would suggest you do some homework You need to understand What is In service Inspection Testing of Electrical Equipment PAT Testing What does it entail What are your responsibilities as the Duty Holder What do your staff need to do to help you Does your insurance company have any specific requirements By being prepared you can help prevent your PAT Contractor taking control and ripping you off Okay there s good news and bad news if you are considering using a PAT Testing contractor The good news is that they will come to your premises and carry out PAT Testing on your electrical equipment thus allowing you to get on with your day job The bad news is as follows Many PAT Companies think that PAT Testing is just about making money rather than promoting safe working practices Many PAT Testers have never been formally trained to carry out the role Many PAT Testers think that PAT Testing is simply about plugging an appliance into a test device and pressing a few buttons Many PAT Testers wouldn t have a clue how to perform a

  • PAT Testing Pricing
    to ensure they don t endanger themselves or others whilst working on your site There needs to be a conversation between you and the PAT Tester to decide which appliances need a Formal Visual Inspection only which need a Combined Inspection Test and which don t need any action at all This is your decision based upon your own risk assessment not that of the PAT Tester although they may offer advice Don t be pressured into having more work done than is actually necessary As we can see before the PAT Testing starts there are a number of administrative tasks which need to be completed Now the PAT Tester should be able to start the inspection and testing process including Finding the appliances although you could help by getting appliances out of cupboards etc Getting members of staff to shut down equipment even if only a Formal Visual Inspection is required A large part of the process is opening plugs checking wires and checking the appliance casing none of which can be done if the appliance is powered up as the PAT Tester could be at risk Formal Visual Inspections require good attention to detail so the PAT Tester will need to spend quality time on the appliance Electrical Tests may be required to test the safety features of the appliance The tests required will depend upon the appliance being tested and will need interpreting as there are different PASS and FAIL levels for different appliances Functional Checks are required on any appliance which passes an inspection and test This requires the appliance to be powered up to check the controls and ensure the appliance does what it is designed to do The test results may need recording and labels attaching to the appliances although this isn t a legal requirement under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 The workplace needs to be left neat and tidy by the PAT Tester Finally in most cases the PAT Tester will need to create a report and pass their findings onto the customer This may require them taking their results with them and generating a professional report off site before forwarding them to you As we can see the PAT Testing process is quite involved and shouldn t be a case of running around the office putting stickers on anything which doesn t move PAT Testing is a semi skilled role which requires training and experience in a technical field and the PAT Tester should work in a professional manner So how much would you pay for this service if it was carried out correctly We are of the opinion that if the price is too low something will be dropped from the list This isn t us being cynical it s basic economics as the PAT Tester has fixed costs variable costs and wants to make a profit By the time the PAT Tester has done whatever is required from the list above they may have spent 4 minutes on

  • How do I test a?
    this stage will either leave you with inaccurate missing results or could inadvertently lead to the appliance being damaged The sensitivity of the equipment In most cases we are going to try and stress the safety features of the appliance in order to determine not only their presence but how strong they are This normally means using a high test current for the Earth Continuity Test and a high test voltage for the Insulation Resistance Test You could argue that we are trying to break the safety features built into the appliance but under controlled conditions rather than allowing the break of natural causes in the future when the user could be put at risk However if you use high currents or high voltages on sensitive equipment e g computers it is the appliance itself which could be damaged so it is up to you to decide which settings to use on your test equipment Extra features on the appliance being tested Does the appliance have a socket on it Obviously an extension lead will have sockets each of which should be tested for Earth Continuity Insulation Resistance and Polarity but some other appliances also carry sockets to improve functionality e g some vacuum cleaners have a socket built in for power tools in order to turn the vacuum into a dust extractor This socket should be tested for Earth Continuity Insulation Resistance and Polarity as any fault could be passed onto the appliance plugged into it Extra Tests Some test equipment will carry out the minimum requirement only whereas others will allow you to carry out extra tests on the appliance where required It is important to understand what these extra tests are going to do to your appliance as you could accidentally damage the appliance or put yourself at risk of harm Some of the extra tests will power the appliance up using mains power sometimes for just a few seconds but sometimes it could be much longer What if the appliance has hot or moving parts If you are not careful you could injury yourself especially if you are not familiar with the operation of the appliance In addition to this some appliances don t appreciate being powered up for just a few seconds e g computers as they have a start up routine If the power is cut part of the way through a start up routine it could damage the appliance Hidden features Some equipment may not be all it appears to be it may have components or features which could interfere with the tests we normally carry out and therefore could give misleading results For example you would not believe the number of extension leads we find with FAIL labels applied Why have they Failed Perhaps it s got something to do with the surge protection circuit they have which will interfere with an Insulation Resistance Test carried out with 500V and the fact that either the PAT Tester didn t know what they
