Portable Appliance Testing

Jay Sparks offers Portable Appliance Testing, and we provide a complete Portable Appliance Management Service as standard for all the electrical appliances on your site.

 

The process of inspecting and testing portable appliances by itself is only one step towards achieving full compliance with all aspects of various health and safety laws. Not only must employers comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (EaWR) but there is also the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 2003 and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) to consider.

 

Our Portable Appliance Management Service keeps you in control, at all times, with all the electrical appliances on your site and so helps towards full compliance with all your relevant legal obligations.

 

Our Portable Appliance Management Service comes as standard and the full benefits include: -

 

“No Fail Policy” all our portable appliance testing rates include undertaking, at no extra cost, minor repairs such as replacing damaged 13A plugs, fitting correctly rated BS1361 fuses into 13A plugs and re-terminating flexible cords into plug tops (where possible). This policy helps keep your plant in-service and can avoid production down time or disruption to your services. These minor repairs are often expensive “hidden costs” in quotations from other suppliers.

Complete electrical appliance asset register and management – we create a full asset register which holds all the details of every electrical appliance on your site and we'll keep it up-dated. Being able to demonstrate control of company assets is an essential requirement under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 2003.

Each item is clearly labelled with a unique identification number so it can be cross referenced with the inspection and test report and asset register.

Visual indication relating to the safety of equipment – each identification label will also clearly indicate a ‘Pass’ or ‘Fail’ marker allowing the user to determine if the equipment is safe to use.

In addition, each individual identification label also records the date the items was inspected, the recommended re-test date and the initials of the inspecting engineer allowing full quality control on inspections and giving users full confidence that all appliances are inspected, tested and up-to-date.

Scheduled site visits to cover all test frequencies with timely reminders to keep all appliances up-to-date.

Full and accurate record keeping including schedules of inspection and test results for every item, guidance for duty holders, asset register and certificate of compliance.

Non-intrusive testing - all portable appliance testing is undertaken in a manner which causes no disruption to your daily operations.

All work carried out by competent, highly experienced and fully qualified engineers to City & Guilds 2377 & 2382 minimum standards. Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 2003 you have to make a suitable and sufficient risk assessment of contractors working on your site – the use of competent people is essential.
