We’re a nation of tech lovers, especially in the office. Just take a quick look at your desktop – how many gadgets, gizmos and electrical appliances do you rely on every day? We’d be lost without our computers, printers, shredders (and perhaps most importantly, our kettles!) to get us through the working day.
So it’s important to ensure they remain in full working order, because faulty equipment not only has a negative effect on the efficiency and productivity of your office, more importantly it has the potential to cause serious harm to your employees. If you’re a business owner, make sure that booking a PAT test is at the top of your to-do list. Read on to find out how C Squared make it as straight-forward as possible, so you can get on with your working week safe in the knowledge you’re protecting your team.
A PAT test, or Portable Appliance Test, is the best way to ensure your office meets today’s electrical safety standards and it should only ever be carried out by a registered electrician. The test itself involves a visual check of appliance, including the lead and plug, as well as testing of the equipment to ensure it is in good working order and safe to continue using.
Here at C Squared, we understand that offices can be hectic environments, so to make things as simple as possible, we provide a full report following every PAT test to keep you in check. Our reports include the following:
- A full inventory detailing every appliance in the office, including the type, name, location and description
- A full set of test results for each appliance tested
- A full list of any failed items with a detailed explanation of their failure
- A visible pass or fail label on each appliance detailing the inspection date, next test due and the inspector’s signature
