Oakpark Cleaning adds ‘PAT Testing’ to Our Services

After successfully upskilling several of our staff through Colchester Institute last month, Oakpark Cleaning Services are pleased to announce that we can now provide operatives with the qualifications and equipment to deliver Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) within any cleaning or FM solution that we deliver.

PAT is done to ensure that all electrical equipment that is classified as “portable” is deemed safe for use. The legislation deems that any competent person can perform it by using a PAT instrument or tester. The visual examination of each appliance in addition to the actual PAT test should be performed only by someone who is deemed competent.

PAT will help you to ensure that the portable appliances in your business are safe and help you to avoid violations of the Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974, Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989, Provision and Use of Work Equipment regulations of 1998 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work regulations of 1999.
