Health and safety is crucial to any business. The importance is increased when children are involved, who at the best of times are unpredictable. The services we offer include PAT Testing, Fixed Wire Testing, Fire Alarm and Extinguisher Testing, and more.
What is PAT Testing?
PAT (Portable Appliance Testing) Testing is the testing of any piece of electrical equipment that is plugged in to the mains, TVs, radios, computers, etc. The recommended time to get testing varies on the business and what equipment it has. Give us a call to find out when you should get your equipment tested.
If PAT Testing covers equipment that is plugged in, Fixed Wire Testing is for the plug sockets themselves?
In a word, yes. Fixed Wire Testing covers the plug sockets, switches, as well as the lights in the building. Paperwork is required for proof that the testing was conducted as the testing is compulsory for legal compliance. You won’t have to worry about that though, as we will cover everything with regards to paperwork.
What does Fire Alarm Testing cover?
Fire Alarm Testing covers the whole system, e.g. the manual call points (the glass you break to set the alarm off), the smoke detectors, sirens, etc. The testing is thorough to ensure that every part of the system is up to the correct standards.
Do fire extinguishers also need testing?
Yes, Fire Extinguisher Testing will cover the maintenance and testing of any fire extinguishers available. Another thing that will be looked at is the type and class of fire extinguishers. There are different types of fire extinguisher that use different chemicals and they can only be used on different objects that have caught fire. Our experts will make sure that you have the right extinguishers as well.
Anything else related to fire safety?
There is also Emergency Lighting Testing, which looks at all of the signs in your premises. We look at batteries, switches, lighting, and controls. We will also assess the locations of the emergency lighting to see if they are best positioned should a fire happen.
