Faulty Equipment Policy
Faulty Equipment Procedure
Following any equipment or lead failing the portable appliance inspection or test procedure the following solutions will be offered:
In the first instance, the faulty equipment or lead will be repaired where practicable, and if safe to do so, will be retested and put back into service.
Leads that have failed and are beyond economic repair will be removed from service, labelled with a failed sticker and reported to the responsible person. For the convenience of the customer, if a new replacement lead can be obtained and supplied by Patman 4 Safety, where practicable, this will be offered to the responsible person, an additional cost maybe chargeable which must be agreed and signed for onsite by the client/responsible person.
Equipment that fail and cannot be repaired, will be removed from service, labelled with a failed sticker and reported to the responsible person.
Equipment and leads that have failed, and cannot safely be removed from service, due to potential lose of data and/or life-saving equipment etc. the equipment will be labelled with a failed sticker and reported to the responsible person. It is the responsibility of the responsible person to then immediately arrange an appropriate replacement and rectification.
A faulty equipment register will be given to the responsible person on site at the end of each day, and it is their responsibility to remove or replace these items.
All users should never use the equipment which has been found faulty. This is taken from the IET Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment (4th edition).
