Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is an important part of a company's or individual's responsibility to health and safety. This is done using a series of specialised testing procedures on your portable appliances.
Electricity kills and injures people. Around 1000 electrical accidents at work are reported to HSE each year and about 30 people die from their injuries.

Many injuries at work are a result of:

•Poorly maintained electrical equipment.
•Inappropriate electrical equipment used in unsuitable places.
•Fires started by poorly maintained electrical equipment.
•Damaged electrical equipment still in use.

Swift PAT has a  professional and comprehensive approach to Portable Appliance Testing and could help your company minimise the risk of injury and death.

Below are some examples of dangerous electrical items our engineers have found on premises we have recently inspected and tested.

What needs to be tested
Employees or members of staff that are Untrained  should not be allowed to carry out remedial repairs to electrical equipment themselves. In the example on the left, someone has to joined two wires together leave the core wires exposed and un-insulated .

A potentially lethal situation and one of the most dangerous things we've come across this month.
Self Repair
Self Repair
Incorrectly Wired Plug
The live and neutral wires on this appliance have been switched in this incorrectly wired plug. Comprehensive checks  carried out by our engineers to ensure the plug is wired correctly and that the earth connection is intact.

Incorrectly wired or missing earth connections are extremely dangerous.

This item was re-wired free of charge as part of our service.
Plug Incorrectly Wired
The Well Known Disaster
The Well Know DIY Disasters
Yet another example here of an untrained member of staff creating a dangerous situation by trying to repair a blown fuse themselves.

Our engineers check all plugs to make sure fuses are of the correct amperage and that dangerous self-repairs haven't been done.
Damaged Plug Top
Plug top Damaged
Damaged plug tops are common. Misuse of equipment or appliances used in the wrong environment could lead to excessive damage to equipment and exposing the user to risk from electric shock hazards

Our Engineers replace plugs Free of Charge included in the PAT Testing Service
Poorly Connected Equipment
Poorly Connected Equipment
The wiring of equipment that is in regular use or poorly connected can easily become loose or disconnected.

A common and extremely dangerous situation if not fixed.
Damaged AC Adaptor
Damaged AC Adaptor
Mobile phone chargers and other AC adaptors are very susceptible to damage because they often sit underneath desks where they get kicked around.

The example above shows how dangerous these can be when damaged
