Weymouth, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 28, 2009 -- As employers we all have to make sure that we keep our employees safe and that they work in a healthy environment that is as risk free as possible. Most of us see it as our moral obligation to the people who work for us but unfortunately not all employers look at it like that. Which is why there have to be Health and Safety regulations, whether we like them or not.
One of the facts to have come out of Health and Safety is that 25% of all electrical accidents that happen within work are due to faulty portable electrical appliances. It is little wonder that the current legislation decrees that all portable electrical appliances used within the workplace should be tested, by qualified electrical specialists, in order to be certified as being fit for use by employees.
This Portable Appliance testing (known as PAT) has to be done annually and the impact that will have on your company both in terms of finance and the length of time it takes to complete, will obviously vary depending on the number of appliances that are used. Regardless of that you need to find the right company to deal with this on your behalf.
Luckily, we have found a great company with fully qualified pat testing staff that works throughout the UK. PAT-Pro offers good rates and is well aware of how to reduce the impact of testing on the running of your business. Their staff works in a highly professional manner to keep any downtime to a minimum whilst carrying out the work to the highest standards. To make sure of this not only do PAT-Pro keep them constantly up to date with training they also do random quality assessments on every electrical engineer that they employ. Guaranteeing that you are getting the very best.
When every portable electrical appliance is tested it is given a sticker saying that it has been passed as fit to use. From the point of view of any health and safety inspector no sticker means that any appliance does not conform and puts you at risk of fine or indeed prosecution. All you need to do to avoid this, and of course to keep your employees safe is to first get a quote in minutes from PAT PRO on line at www.pat-pro.co.uk and then arrange a convenient time for them to carry out the inspections.
