  • PAT Testing Labels
    So why is it a good idea to put a label on an appliance after a PAT Test As well as showing the equipment user the management and any inspectors auditors that the appliance has undergone a Formal Visual Inspection or a Combined Inspection Tests it also shows the status of the appliance at the time of testing when it was tested and allows adequate traceability through appliance records So what information is required on a PASS Label There are typically three pieces of information required 1 The status of the appliance i e the fact that the appliance has PASSED an inspection and possibly a series of electrical tests If we don t include this the label is fairly meaningless 2 A unique number If you look around your workplace you will probably see many items which are basically identical e g an office containing 20 computers If there is an incident involving one of these computers and you want to demonstrate that it has undergone a programme of scheduled PAT Testing how will you be able to match the appliance with the corresponding paperwork if there is no accurate way of linking them together A simple unique number on the appliance and its test result records enables effective identification 3 The test date Until November 2012 it was common practice for PAT Contractors to put a re test date on the appliance so that the equipment user could see when the appliance was out of date and needed another PAT Test However this implies that the PAT Contractor knows the environment the equipment is being used in how much use the equipment gets and how the user uses the equipment This is highly unlikely so how does the PAT Contractor know that the appliance needs inspecting or testing in 12 months time Sometimes it may be an instruction from the customer e g I want everything PAT Testing every year or maybe the PAT Contractor is relying on the customer s lack of knowledge of the PAT Testing Process and tells them that everything must be PAT Testing every year A re test date should not be used by PAT contractors The bottom line is that PAT Testing should follow a risk based approach and it is up to the customer to decide when an item requires a Formal Visual Inspection or Combined Inspection and Test Therefore a Test Date should be put on the PASS Label thus leaving the re test period open ended It is NOT up to the PAT Contractor to dictate when the PAT Testing needs doing it is the customer s decision based upon a Risk Assessment You may decide to display additional information e g the Inspectors name or initials the company name the fuse size of the appliance etc but this is entirely your decision Some would argue that more information is better but it depends upon your own requirements Label Materials As the label needs to be on the appliance

  • Workplace Safety
    cleaning fluids etc etc so why are we so laid back regarding electricity in the workplace Don t forget electricity can kill So what can you do to help minimise the risks Firstly we need to make your staff more vigilant As they are adults they should have a level of commonsense so if they see something which doesn t look safe they should tell someone However as electricity is silent colourless and odourless it can be difficult to detect until it is too late so what should your staff be looking out for Is the electrical equipment suitable for where it is being used Is the electrical equipment being used in the way it was designed Is the wall socket damaged Cracked loose showing signs of overheating etc Is the plug damaged Cracked showing signs of overheating etc Is the wire flex or power cord damaged Has the wire been repaired with tape or choc block Is the wire safely secured to the plug and the appliance Is the wire trailing where it could be damaged or represent a trip hazard Is the appliance damaged Cracked casing missing parts missing controls missing guards etc Is the appliance being exposed to moisture or dust Has the equipment user been trained to use it safely Would it be reasonable to ask your staff to carry out these checks on a regular basis In reality they should already be doing it The points listed above constitute a User Check which was defined following the launch of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 so it isn t something new it s been around a long time Surely I can plug anything into a socket can t I The mains supply to a building is generally strong and safe enough to cope with most normal applications However it has a limit If you have too many appliances plugged into a circuit or use too many higher powered appliances on the same circuit the mains fuse or breaker on that circuit will trip in order to prevent damage or injury This has been the backbone of electrical safety in the workplace for many years and is constantly being improved As an equipment user we still have a responsibility to ensure that the equipment is being used safely as it is still possible to create an overload situation purely by accident or by sheer ignorance Whilst some overloads can be instant and very obvious sometimes they can build slowly and be more of a ticking time bomb leading to fires when you would least expect them One major issue we see almost every day is the overuse incorrect use and even abuse of extension leads Whilst our electricians take the time to ensure the fixed wiring circuits of a building meet the relevant safety standards an equipment user can create their own mini circuit by using an extension lead or trailing socket If a bit of commonsense isn t used it is possible to create a
