Portable Appliance Testing Chatham

To make certain that electrically powered equipment and appliances in Chatham are safe enough to use, they should be examined by a procedure known as PAT (Portable appliance Testing). Some electrical safety flaws can only be uncovered by a testing process, while most problems can be found by a visual inspection alone. Visual examinations are however still an important element of the PAT process and may discover specific issues that testing alone may well not detect. Aided by a simple tick-off list and some simple, step-by-step instructions, brief user inspections can be performed as an accepted part of any electrical maintenance routine. Visual examinations can pinpoint incorrect fuses, damaged or loose outlets, damage to the actual appliances, wobbly plug connections, frazzled or damaged cables, indications of overheating, loose or unconnected wires and damaged plugs. However, at appropriate intervals a more professional testing and visual inspection might be needed.
