3 reasons to keep on top of PAT testing
When you see a small testing sticker on an appliance, you might look at it once and then completely forget about it, assuming it’s a problem for the next person. However, if employers don’t pay close attention to PAT testing, they could find themselves on the receiving end of significant problems. Read on to find out just a few of the reasons why you need to stay up to date with PAT testing in the workplace.
You can avoid significant accidents
PAT testing is done to make sure that all of your appliances are in usable condition, and more importantly, that they won’t cause accidents. An electrical appliance breaking down can lead to sparks and even fires breaking out. PAT tests involve visual inspections of your appliances as well as more in-depth checks using specialised testing equipment. These checks monitor the lead polarity, earth continuity and insulation resistance of your appliances.
Your workplace can keep operating
Electrical faults can come in all shapes and sizes, but even the smallest issue can lead to a blown fuse and stop power coming into your office. And let’s face it, the last thing you want or need is your workplace grinding to a halt. Regular PAT testing helps to reduce the chances of an appliance failing and keeps your business running as smoothly as possible.
Reduce insurance costs with PAT testing
PAT testing might seem annoying to organise, but it offers a number of financial benefits. For example, you will likely see your insurance costs go down, as you have the assurance that your appliances are safe and in good working order. What’s more, having your equipment checked regularly means you can repair or replace it before major issues arise, potentially saving you more money in the long term.
