Inspection and Testing
Electricity kills and injures people. Around 1000 electrical accidents at work are reported to HSE each year and about 30 people die of their injuries. Haynes Ltd provides a full range of testing and inspection services for both commercial and domestic environments.
PAT Testing (Portable Appliance Testing)
Haynes Ltd offers a complete electrical testing and inspection service to British Standard BS7671. We are fully qualified inspectors and use the highest standard test equipment to ensure that appliances are electrically safe. Our PAT testing equipment is calibrated on a regular basis to ensure that we provide the most accurate test possible. All our testing is carried out in accordance with The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) code of practice.
Appliances and leads are tested for a variety of faults, and given a pass or fail sticker as appropriate. A certificate of PAT testing and PAT test schedule is provided showing the results of all tests. These can if required also be reproduced on CD-ROM.
If required, we will at the time of testing, also carry out minor repairs e.g. change an incorrectly rated fuse or damaged plug so that equipment is safe and eligible for PAT certification. More significant faults or serious damage will, however, be reported to our client.
Electrical Circuit Testing
Periodic inspection and testing of electrical circuits is necessary to provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, for:
Periodic inspection and testing is also necessary because all installations deteriorate. This can be due to a number of factors, such as damage, wear, tear, corrosion, excessive electrical loading’ ageing and environmental influences.
The legislation requires that electrical installations are maintained in a safe condition and therefore must be periodically tested Licensing authorities, public bodies, insurance companies, mortgage lenders and others may require periodic inspection and testing of electrical installations.
- The safety of persons and livestock against the effects of electric shock and burns
- Protection against damage to property by fire and heat arising from an installation defect, and
- Confirmation that the installation is not damaged or deteriorated so far as to impair safety, and
- The identification of installation defects and non-compliance with the requirements of the Regulations which may give rise to danger.
In addition, periodic inspection and testing should be considered:
To assess compliance with BS7671 and the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
On change of occupancy of the premises
On change of use of the premises
After alterations or additions to the original installation
In the event of any significant change in the electrical loading of the installation
Where there is reason to believe that damage may have been caused to the installation
Our qualified and accredited inspection and testing team can perform all of the necessary tests to ensure a supply and installation conforms to all of the relevant safety legislation and standards. This includes:
- Continuity of Protective Conductors and Equipotential Bonding conductors
