Put in simple terms electricity can KILL , which is why legislation has been put in place. The electricity at work regulations requires, in regulation 4(2) that
As may be necesarry to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger.
Portable applince testing covers this regulation and Ltm pat testing rochdale will provide all documentation, ensuring your electrical appliances are safe to use.
Many PAT testing companies will tell you that it is a legal requirement to have all electrical equipment pat tested.
This is not the case, as it is not a mandatory requirement which actually makes it a bit of a grey area.
The truth is although its not a legal requirement, if you where to have a fire which was found to be caused by a faulty piece of electrical equipment and you failed to keep adequate electrical maintenance records you will find your insurance may be VOID, making any claim against your insurance impossible.
Another important point is that if there was to be a death in the workplace caused by a faulty piece of electrical equipment and you failed to keep adequate electrical maintenance records then the health and safety executive will hold you fully responsible and you could find your self looking at a court case.
