PAT - Portable Appliance Testing
Test, Maintain and Protect
What are your legal duties?
It is a legal requirement under The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, that all portable appliances used at work shall be adequately maintained in order that employees are protected from the dangers presented by a faulty appliance.
Are you sure your electrical appliances are safe?
If not, your staff and your building may be at risk. Faulty appliances are common causes of electric shock or even the outbreak of a fire so appliances at work should be properly maintained so that employees, contract workers, temporary staff and site visitors are protected.
EH Systems can carry out comprehensive Portable Appliance Testing to identify any potential hazards and to make sure you are compliant with all current guidelines to minimise any risk.
