Why Opt for Professional PAT Testing?

November 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 252

There are technically only two types of PAT testing available across the UK today – professional and otherwise. However, while the vast majority are as of now aware of the importance of PAT testing in order to fulfil legal safety requirements, what often goes overlooked is the way in which the quality and competence of the PAT testing carried out will have a direct and perhaps serious effect on the health and safety of those coming into contact with the appliances and circuits in question.

Ever since online retailers began offering devices like the megger 1720 found at www.tester.co.uk/megger-mft1720-multifunction-installation-tester for affordable prices to all buyers, more and more businesses and landlords have begun taking on the task of PAT testing themselves as an affordable and seemingly sensible alternative. The trouble is, what most don’t seem to realise is that when it comes to PAT testing, a great deal of knowledge and experience is required to do anything more than cover the basics with any level of competence.

 

Or to put it another way, the PAT tests being carried out by those without professional training may not in any way be capable of offering the same level of health and safety as the professional alternative.

It really comes down to a matter of common sense and a situation whereby any job worth doing for the wellbeing of others is 100% worth doing right. As such, this means not only picking up a megger mft 1720 from http://www.tester.co.uk/megger-mft1720-multifunction-installation-tester and toying about with its features, but knowing exactly how to put its features to work in a real-life situation.

Remaining with equipment, there is also the fact that the elite, professional testing service will be equipped with far more than just a basic multifunction tester alone. As such, once high-end thermal imaging cameras and the like have been brought into the equation, the once seemingly affordable alternative of DIY testing starts to look a little less of a possibility by any right.

What must never be taken for granted is the common assumption that 21st century technology and electrical appliances/circuits are so advanced and sophisticated that problems can be ruled and never have to be considered. Not true, as while appliances and circuits etc. are indeed safer and more sophisticated than ever before, they are also complex and intricate on a whole new level making accident, incident and fault impossible to rule out by any other than the most advanced professional.
