At National PAT Testing Ltd, we take the health and wellbeing of our employees and customers seriously and due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we consider it our duty to prioritise and ensure the safety of both employee and customer whilst maintaining business efficiency and continuity.
While undertaking portable appliance testing on a client’s site we will ensure all necessary steps, procedures and policies are in place to reduce and control the risk associated with COVID-19.
As we may encounter staff, contractors and members of the public while on a client’s site, we will ensure a minimum of 2-meters distance is always maintained.
Our engineers are at risk from exposure to COVID-19 while undertaking work on a clients’ site. While strictly following the 2-Meter minimum rule other hazards may arise, for example, Coronavirus contaminated surfaces including plugs, switches, appliances and workstations. To control this hazard, firstly we have educated all members of staff using toolbox talks and meetings. Secondly, we require the use of PPE and encourage regular sanitisation of tools, equipment and staff.
National PAT Testing Ltd provides the following items of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to the attending engineers.
· Face Masks (Disposable)
· Powder-free nitrile gloves (Disposable)
· Hand-sanitiser (Ethanol and Hydrogen Peroxide based)
All used PPE is placed in sealed bags to ensure successful and safe disposal.
We regularly check and follow the guidelines for reducing the risk of COVID-19 set out by PHE (Public Health England) and HSE (Health & Safety Executive)
National PAT Testing Ltd review this statement on a weekly basis to ensure we are following the latest recommendations PHE, HSE and WHO.
