Building Contractor PAT Testing
Construction is among the most vital and hazardous industries, and it is vital to ensure that your tools and work equipment are inspected and up to standards. The risks associated with working with electrical equipment are more significant than those associated with working with office equipment. Sometimes, the contractor’s tools may not be lawful to use on the job site because they do not meet with the rules or the site’s insurance requirements. A builder, for example, may not be eligible for an insurance claim if any injuries or accidents occur because they have not implemented a regular programme to ensure the electrical safety of the equipment.
Contractors and builders may work in all kinds of weather situations, whereas office employees’ appliances are mainly in a pleasant, dry, somewhat clean workspace. Therefore, when your electrical equipment is used and left in various circumstances, this might harm its condition. In these conditions, the likelihood of equipment developing fractures in casing slits in cables or plugs becoming hazardous are significantly higher.
We will advise and collaborate with you and conduct a testing programme to guarantee you are informed. In addition, we can advise you on the frequency of testing required for your business.
PAT Testing Regulations You Must Know
The Safety, Health, and Welfare at Work Regulations, SI 299, 2007, set forth the rules for portable appliance testing in Ireland. The rule requires employers to have all portable equipment used at their workplace examined and regularly tested by a qualified person. Submitted by PAT, employers can determine whether any portable equipment was safe and without danger to individuals coming into direct or indirect touch with any live portion of the equipment on the day of the test by testing it.
If the competent person’s certificate shows that the portable equipment tested was not safe and without risk on the test day, the employer must guarantee that the equipment is not used until it is made safe and certified according to PAT testing rules. PAT inspections and tests must be documented and preserved for five years after the inspection. These must be available for examination by an inspector, and users of the equipment are given access upon request.
If tools and equipment are subjected to conditions that cause them to deteriorate, may it become a safety hazard? Periodic inspections and testing will be carried out to protect against this. In addition, when work equipment is moved to a new location, it is accompanied by proof of the most recent inspection and test.
