Health and Safety regulations recommend that electrical appliances in the workplace are tested and maintained at regular intervals to prevent any dangerous situations arising. If you run a business, you are legally required to test all of your portable appliances periodically, including PC’s, printers, kettles and microwaves.
A large amount of electrical accidents are caused by faulty portable appliances. The risk of this can be reduced by getting all workplace equipment periodically tested by a trusted electrician. Every business uses electrical appliances of some kind, making portable appliance testing vital. At J&C Contractors (UK) Ltd, we offer PAT Testing services to keep businesses safe and compliant in the most hassle-free way.
PAT Testing gives you the peace of mind by identifying potential electrical faults and offering advice to make sure your business avoids dangerous accidents. An accredited record of testing will help with any insurance claims and will allow you to avoid potential heavy fines. We provide our services to all types of businesses from small to large business premises.
The Electricity at Work Regulations are in place to prevent death or personal injury caused by electrics in the workplace. Business owners without a record of safety measures will be liable in the event of an accident and may fail to claim insurance without proof of safe practices. PAT Testing is a safety net of evidence when it comes to legal compliance.
