Both the UK Health and Safety Executive, and all major insurance companies, require employers to perform regular PAT tests on electrical equipment.
PAT testing is usually carried out on an annual basis; however, you may need to carry out more frequent testing depending on the nature of your business. For example, it is recommended that equipment on construction sites be tested every 3 months for health and safety purposes.
What is a PAT Test?
A PAT test is an electrical equipment inspection that is usually carried out in two parts: a visual inspection and an electrical test carried out using specialised testing equipment. After the test, a label is normally attached to the equipment indicating whether it has passed or failed and detailing the next test date.
It is a legal requirement that all emergency lighting systems undergo a full 3-hour discharge test every year.
This works to ensure that the system is fully functional and ensures that, in the event of an emergency, all escape routes remain lit for their required length of time.
Thermal imaging is used to scan electrical objects for internal deterioration or other abnormalities.
Thermoimaging inspections are one of the most thorough and valuable forms of maintenance for large businesses or organisations, where continuity of process is paramount.
How does Thermal Imaging Work?
A thermographic camera is a device that forms images using infrared radiation. Thermal imaging is a widely used method of detecting problems in electrical equipment as it can identify issues that cannot be seen with the naked eye without interfering with the equipment.
Thermal imaging can help detect problems before they surface, allowing for planned maintenance, minimising the risk of fire, and preventing costly production downtime’s.
We were really impressed by the professionalism of Griff Services and would recommend them in the future. The work was undertaken well and we had positive comments regarding the corporate identity of Michael and his co-worker and the company vehicle.
Along with the big contracts I know you usually work on the professionalism and quality of work you provided for me on a one off job was truly outstanding. I have had many previous encounters with tradespeople who are late (or never show up) and only do half a job, and ask for more money than originally quoted. To my relief Griff Services have been an absolute pleasure to do business with and I have recommended their services to my colleagues, family, and friends who are in the Construction trade.
Griff Services ltd are an extremely dedicated and professional contractor, on which nothing seems to hinder their performance. Mike and Joanne has an in-depth knowledge of products and applications required for each job. We as his electrical supplier can only recommend any potential works his way with the upmost faith the project will be satisfied completely. Good luck in the future.
The EV charging point install was very tidy and efficient. Happy to recommend Griff Services in future.
Meeting Michael and the GRIFF team was a breath of fresh air. Michael and his entire team were on-hand and available through the whole process to cope with the inevitable challenges of a project this size, and their ongoing quality assurance throughout the programme ensured that on move-in day, we did not even have one item which was not fully operational. I would thoroughly recommend GRIFF tor commercial projects of any scale.
We needed 6 Solar Panels to be assembled and dismantled few days later. These were for training purposes for local Fire Brigade in Manchester. Project was successful with just few minor issues that have been addressed and resolved at the time. We would definitely use Griff Services Ltd in future.
Griff Services did a great job for me. They arranged for the installation of the EV charging point at short notice and provided update and reminder text messages prior to the job. On the morning of the install they also notified me of the installer Tom's ETA. Tom did a great and tidy job and was extremely pleasant to deal with. Overall I would highly recommend them for future work. Thank you
