If you manage company operations, you know how important it is to schedule electrical services. Services are featured that include the following:
- Inspection and testing
- Installation and maintenance for industrial and commercial businesses
- Installation and maintenance of emergency lighting systems
- Safety services including CCTV systems, intruder alarms, and fire alarms
- LED and solar upgrades
One of the needed electrical services involves portable appliance testing, or PAT tests. Portable appliances are used daily. Therefore a PAT evaluation can minimise problems with fire or electric shock. It is the responsibility of businesses, landlords, and institutions to make sure that appliances meet the safety requirements along these lines.
The Advantages of Testing
When PAT testing is scheduled with electricians in Derbyshire, it provides a cost-efficient way for employers or landlords to reduce insurance premiums. When you work with the right electrical contractor, he or she can economically perform out-of-hours testing to minimise operational downtime or interruptions.
Items can be tested in bulk with the price per appliance significantly reduced for amounts between 150 and 1,000 appliances or more.
Periodic inspections are also conducted so the risk can be reduced for the following:
- Overloaded circuits
- Lack of earthing or bonding
- Heat damage
This type of inspection can also be performed out of business hours. In addition, remedial works can be undertaken if needed. A detailed report is submitted after the inspection.
Regardless of the type of assessment, it is necessary to ensure the serviceability of electrical equipment and appliances as well as the safety of others. Make an appointment today to have your electrical equipment evaluated or tested.
