PAT testing for CQC

MPAT has undertaken PAT testing across a verity of CQC (Care Quality Commission) regulated companies. CQC covers not only the quality of service each provider delivers but also covers safety, and this is where MPAT have helped by making the PAT testing unobtrusive, timely , efficient and always provided them with notification in advance of their next testing, to take away any unnecessary hassle. We are qualified, DBS certified, fully insured (£10m) and all our test equipment is calibrated.

An example of types of CQC company and locations we work with are:

  • Mental Health – Burgess Hill, Dorking, Portsmouth, Southwick, Lancing
  • Dental – Haywards Heath, Uckfield, Burgess Hill, Lewes, Worthing
  • Care homes – Crawley, Newhaven, East Grinstead
  • Doctors Surgery – Haywards Heath, Littlehampton

An example of one of our jobs is a Mental Health unit where we manage their PAT testing in accordance to the HSE and IEE guidelines – In advance of their retest we inform them with plenty of time so a suitable time/day can be selected to limit the impact to their daily operation. For this customer it is to get the testing completed before their peak time starting from 13:00. As they still have people working before this time, undertaking consultations etc. we always find out which rooms are in use/free (with available times) so as to not impact on the vital services they are providing, but still ensuring the PAT testing is efficiently and thoroughly completed .

As part of our service we not only undertake the PAT testing but can also undertake remedial fixes found; this year we completed a cable management programme for one of their offices, this office had multiple desks with daisy chained extensions and had cables running all across the floors. We reconfigured this so each desk had its own dedicated extension lead, installed cable trays to raise all the cables off of the ground, which reduced the risk of overloading the socket, damage to the cables, trip hazards and left the office looking neater and professional.

  • MPAT PAT testing office

PAT testing in offices

PAT testing in office can vary massively from buildings with lots of separate offices to large open plan offices, what also varies are the opening times, peak business times, criticality of the work being undertaken at specific times, whether it’s primarily a hot desk environment, permanent PC’s, single monitor desk space, 5x monitor desk space with all the latest technology, 2 member of staff, 200+ members of staff – we have PAT tested for all these types of office and many more.

Before we start a PAT test we will always liaise with our customers to work out the best days of the week/times to test. This can vary massively and we have started early to complete before staff members arrive, started late to complete in the evening, during the night where the offices are very large to limit any impact, undertaken on Fridays as they have most staff members working from home, over lunch for key areas of the business or just during the normal office working week– At MPAT we will always book the PAT testing to your needs and to limit the impact to your business.

We have PAT tested office in quite a wide area, but an example of some of these area are: Crawley, Guildford, Cranleigh, Horsham, Farnham, East Grinstead, Tunbridge Wells, Hastings, Bexhill on Sea, Eastbourne, Newhaven, Brighton, Hove, Shoreham, Lancing, Worthing, Littlehampton, Henfield, Uckfield and many areas in London

 

One example is a multiple office company in Crawley and Lancing that has comfortably in excess of 300+ employees. Due to the nature of the business we agreed it would be best to undertake the testing during the evening and night. We agreed a schedule, passes and covered lock up/alarming etc. and have undertaken this for this customer over multiple years now and have proved to be very successful.

  • MPAT PAT testing for ISO

PAT testing for ISO

Many businesses as they grow or look to take on larger customers/contracts/tenders will find a need to become ISO registered. Part of the ISO criteria is to have proof of your PAT testing – If you know any company going through ISO registration, or increasing their ISO level, you will understand that they have a lot of information to have in place and it can be a very busy period preparing for your audits. If you would like MPAT to take away one thing for you to think about contact us to see how we can help you, if you are however very close to completion and have just realised the PAT testing is not complete, we will always do our best for you and turn your testing and paperwork around in the timescale required…

A resent example is a business service provider in Burgess Hill that is looking to increase the size of tender they can put in for, they required the PAT testing completed, we were notified with 12 days notice before the paperwork was due, we visited the site, agreed the price, booked in the testing, completed the testing and sent the paperwork with 5 days to spare –saving any additional stress.

If you are looking to go through ISO, are going through ISO or you are wanting a company that will put its customers first with our PAT testing please contact us
