Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
We often find that most companies have never heard of PAT Testing or have not been informed that they are required by HSE Guidance Notes that advise "regular testing" and this is generally interpreted as a requirement for annual testing.
We offer PAT Testing for all types of businesses including: offices, schools, local government and council premises, factories, landlords, retail premises, care homes, nightclubs, hotels, public houses, shops, hair salons, beauty salons, as well as local authority premises. Ensuring that your business complies with the most current and up-to-date Health and Safety legislation as well as the insurance requirements for employee and public liability.
Fixed Wire Testing
All fixed wire installations will deteriorate with age and with use. Therefore, it is your companie's responsibility to have them inspected and tested at regular intervals. This will ensure they are in a satisfactory condition for continued use or highlight any repairs or dangers present. Once completed you will be issued with an safety report.
A periodic inspection will:
- Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded.
- Find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards.
- Identify any defective electrical work.
- Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding.
Testing is invaluable for your business. We will carry out any minor repairs and safely modify any unsightly and dangerous wiring as part of our service to avoid the obvious happening.
We also carry out Fire Safety services and Fire Compliance programs
Target PAT Testing also offer Fire Detection inspection annual tests which includes testing of wall mounted alarm activation points, heat detectors, smoke detectors, sprinkler systems and sounders as well as main control panels.
Fire Extinguisher testing is something that most businesses take for granted. Target PAT Testing can carry out all your fire extinguishers, no matter which type, in compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and will replace any small or large parts due to wear and tear. You will be supplied with a full report and all extinguishers passed, will be marked as such on each unit. Never use your fire extinguisher as a door stop.
Target PAT Testing can also test your Fire Compliance Management Program to ensure you are complying with the above order. A full fire risk assessment and compliance audit will be carried out by fully trained and experienced engineers ensuring you have all safety documentation, emergency plan, evacuation procedure and log books in place. You will be awarded with a certificate of compliance annually.
Every business should have a security alarm system. Target PAT Testing offer testing of your alarm control panel, any external boxes or sounders, and internal sounders, security gates, doors and windows. This will also come with a security report and certification.
