Electrical Safety

Electrical safety is a key part of a safe working environment in our industry, and proper testing is central to how this can be achieved.
Fujitsu Services have in place a policy to test all portable electrical equipment at intervals as laid out in mandated policy guidelines. This “Portable Appliance Testing” (PAT testing) can take the form of “Formal Visual Inspection” (FVI) or “Combined Inspection and Test” (CIT).
UNITE Health & Safety reps are working with Fujitsu Services to ensure Policy and Guidelines are adhered to. This has resulted in audits of areas within the Manchester Campus being carried out that have identified large numbers of untested items.
We are working towards ensuring that a proper programme of testing and record keeping operates as soon as possible.
