We believe ‘pat testing’ or ‘portable appliance testing’ is an important part of any health & safety policy. Electricity can kill! Each year about 1000 accidents at work involving electric shock or burns are reported to the Health and Safety Executive. About 15 of these are fatal. Those using electricity may not be the only ones at risk: poor electrical installations and faulty electrical appliances can lead to fires which may cause death of injury to others. Most workplaces and types of work in this country have or use electricity in one way or another. It is our aim here at R&G to make it simple and cost effective for all types of businesses to comply with Health & Safety regulations regarding portable appliance testing and to promote a safe working environment. We look to provide a service that takes care of this important safety aspect for businesses and organisations, leaving them free and piece of mind to concentrate on running their specialist area’s of business. The Health & Safety Executive states that 25% of all reportable electric accidents involve portable appliances. The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers, employees and self employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment. This in effect requires the implementation of a systematic and regular program or maintenance, inspection and testing.
