Southern Fire Protection Ltd offers a professional portable appliance testing service. We are able to test and certify any electrical equipment used within your place of work.
Tested portable equipment is labelled with pass or fail stickers and this is accompanied by a log which gives a full report on the work carried out.
Health and Safety
Health and safety regulations require that the electrical appliances be safe to prevent harm to the workers. Many types of equipment require testing at regular intervals to ensure continual safety; the interval between tests depends on both the type of appliance and the environment it is used in.
The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) places an obligation for regular electrical testing in the following circumstances:
- Where appliances are used by employees.
- Where the public may use appliances in establishments such as hospitals, schools, hotels & shops.
- Where appliances are supplied or hired.
- Where appliances are repaired or serviced.
Professional and Transparent Service
Misleading advice and advertising, often by companies who offer the testing, can result in some businesses such as offices, shops and hotels paying unnecessarily for excessive maintenance procedures. You can be reassured that all work undertaken by Southern Fire Protection Ltd is carried out by fully insured and fully qualified engineers.
