The responsibility for testing these items lies with appointed contract maintenance engineers managed by Estates.

Users of electricity are responsible for informing the College maintenance department about defective fixed installations, for example a power socket that is unreliable or shows signs of heat or other damage.

Testing of Portable Electrical Equipment

'Portable' means apparatus or appliances which are moveable or transportable and which are connected to an electrical supply by way of a flexible cable when in use.

Testing is of two kinds:
2 An informal visual inspection carried out by the user
3 A combined formal visual inspection and electrical testing using Portable Appliance Test (PAT) equipment, managed by the College maintenance department

Informal Visual Inspection

All users of portable electrical equipment must carry out their own regular visual inspections, using the guidelines given in appendix 1. Equipment must be switched off and then unplugged before inspection (or cleaning).
When a fault is found, the equipment must be taken out of use until the fault has been rectified. Where any doubt arises about correcting an electrical fault, the College maintenance staff must be consulted.
N.B. Faulty switching or intermittent failure of equipment may indicate an internal fault such as a loose wire, which could cause external metalwork to become live.

Combined Formal Inspection and Testing

A combined formal visual inspection and electrical testing using Portable Appliance Test (PAT) equipment managed by the College maintenance department.

When testing is required, it is the responsibility of Departments to complete the necessary clearance certificates where required.

Record Keeping

After the equipment has been tested the person carrying out the test must:

4 place a label on each piece of equipment which has passed the test, showing the test date and the initials of the tester.
5 place the label 'faulty' on each item which does not pass the test. These items must be taken out of use until the fault has been rectified. The repair must be carried out by someone who has the necessary skill and knowledge to complete the task safely.
6 keep a written maintenance department record of each test result.
7 inform the Department which requested the testing to be carried out about the results of all the tests.

N.B. Some items of electronic equipment, for example computers, telecommunication devices and other equipment used for data processing, require special consideration because inappropriate testing could cause damage to the equipment. In these cases, users of the equipment should consult the supplier to discover the test procedure to be used.
