AB Compliance has been Pat Testing since its establishment in September 2009, offering the following services:
The Pat Testing service is provided to enable compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 regulation 4 sub section 2, and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
The inspection consists of a visual check on the appliance's plug, connector, cable or flex and to then confirm the suitability of the appliance in the environment. This inspection includes removing the plug top, inspecting the wiring and connections and confirming the correct fuse rating is used.
A series of instrument tests to check for less visible faults and to fully comply with the Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) Regulations are performed.
Microwave ovens provide a convenient and safe way of cooking food in the workplace, however faults can occur and unless periodically tested they may become a health and safety hazard without you being aware.
As microwaves are used usually on a daily basis, after a period of time, the door seals can become faulty causing leakage levels to exceed the recommended limit. The safety interlock switches and the door seals are inspected for any signs of damage to ensure that they function correctly and safely.
A microwave oven leakage testing service to complement our Portable Appliance Testing is available and is completed at the same visit.
All appliances and extension leads are labelled with the unique item asset number; date tested and date of the next test. Specific and more robust labels can be specified at an additional charge.
The customer service is completed by the provision of a ‘Customer Completion Package’ consisting of the following printouts:
- A report of the assets tested and their location.
- A report detailing the electrical tests completed and the results with pass fail information.
- A Certificate of compliance signed and dated by the accredited engineer.
The Customer Completion Package is available by email or in hard copy depending on the customer’s preference.
