HSE, ISO and Insurance Compliance

HSE legislation does not state that you need annual PA testing but in the event of a fire in your business premises or an injury involving an electrical appliance you will almost certainly be asked to provide up to date PAT testing documentation. Similarly our PAT testing documentation complies with ISO requirements and in the event of an insurance claim our documentation will demonstrate your commitment to health and safety and compliance with health and safety at work legislation.

RCD Testing  - Now Available

RCD testing is the process of safely "tripping" your RCD to ensure it will operate quickly should there be an electrical incident. This is also known as safety switch testing. Your RCD is designed to trip, or switch off all the power to that circuit. United Kingdom standards detail the maximum "trip times" for various RCD's and the competent technician testing your RCD will be able to determine whether your RCD is tripping quickly enough. The quicker a RCD trips, the smaller the electric shock sustained by an individual.
