P.A.T Testing is an essential part of running a business. It ensures the smooth running of operations where all electrical appliances and equipment are running at a steady, efficient, and effective standard so as not to interfere with your day to day operations. It is also there to ensure the health and safety of both employees and customers. Any accidents that could happen due to electrical faults can range from minor delays in operations to catastrophic injuries to people. Electricity is a wonderful thing in the modern day, but it can be extremely dangerous when faulty equipment or wiring is involved. That is why it is so important to have regular P.A.T. testing done by a registered electrician such as Electrician Woking. We do testing for several types of commercial businesses as well as residential homes also. Some of the places we do P.A.T. testing for include factories, offices, colleges, schools, pubs, clubs, restaurants, hotels, banks and much more. Whatever the industry, give us a call and we will schedule your P.A.T test today.
Why it is Necessary
It is so important to make sure that everything is working correctly in your business in order for it to run at full capacity. Problems with electrical appliances can slow your business down significantly. If some appliances are stopping and starting, or are only running at fifty per cent capacity, then that directly effects the business. Business owners are here to make a profit and if operations have to close down for days or even weeks due to electrical hazards then that costs the owner a significant amount of money. The key is to get a P.A.T test done regularly so to identify potential hazards before they arise. This in turn keeps the business running smoothly and making money which is what every business owner wants.
Health and Safety
You can’t put a price on the safety of your employees as well as your customers. From a business point of view, any accident that arises on the property due to electrical faults fall back on the owner. This type of lawsuit could cripple the business if it is proven that there was faulty electrical equipment on the premises as well as no recent record of P.A.T testing done. This could also affect your insurance claim.
There are Health and safety laws that must be upheld in all businesses also to ensure that everyone on the premises is in a safe environment. This includes both the employees and the customers.
