Electric shock can seriously injure or kill. Therefore, all electrical systems and equipment should be maintained if danger would otherwise arise. Therefore, regular inspection of equipment is an essential part of any preventive programme.
Laws such as the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations, and the Electricity at Work Regulations, requires that employers ensure, for example, the safety of employees by both providing equipment suitable for the job, and that it is electrically safe for continued use in its intended environment. PAT testing is a way to meet this obligation.
The 'repairing' standard of the Housing (Scotland) Act requires that a private landlord ensures that the electrical appliances, electrical heating and hot water systems they provide be in a reasonable state of repair and working order. PAT testing is away to meet this obligation.
Therefore, whatever your requirements as an employer or landlord, your needs are important to me, and I will make the effort to ensure that your equipment is safe for continued use. So contact me today, your local electrician in Aberdeen, to arrange for PAT testing to be carried out at your property.
