What Tests we do
Assuming that equipment passes the visual inspection, the equipment can now be tested. Brief descriptions of the tests are detailed below indicating appropriate tests for the different classes of equipment.
All Portable Appliance testing is to be carried out by Pattest.us using appropriate instrumentation that should be calibrated regularly.
It is best practise that all the results of inspection and testing should be collated to form a register. Using this information it is possible for employers to establish a safe frequency of testing based on the failure rates, age and condition of equipment and the environment in which it is used.
Each appliance/lead that passes inspection and test will be issued with it’s own identification number. This number along with the retest due date and details of the test engineer should be affixed to each unit tested.
