Testing Procedures

Key inspection tasks:

On site:

  • We visually inspect the appliance looking for obvious, and some not so obvious, defects.
  • Plugs are dismantled where so designed.
  • Terminals are checked for tightness and fuses are checked and replaced with the correct rating if incorrect or of a non- approved type.
  • Each item is put through a series of pre-set tests on specialised equipment to establish if it conforms to current legislation.
  • Those items that pass, have a PASS label attached stating the date on which a re-test is due.
  • Our engineers download their reports from the testing machine, and email them to the Kingsmead office.

At the Kingsmead office:

1) We cross-check the machine report against the list of appliances on site, and produce a detailed written report telling you the status of each of your appliances.

2) We provide you with a copy of your report, and maintain a copy of the report at our office in case of future need.

3) We remind you when testing is due next time, based on our understanding of the equipment at your premises, and the type of visitors you have. Many organisations such as schools and dental surgeries require annual testing. Other businesses that use tools, might need testing every 3 or 6 months. Your risk assessments will dictate your testing interval, and we make a note of this on our database.


At KTS we use the latest equipment manufactured by Seaward. The Apollo range ensures accurate reporting and detailed results for your asset register. The equipment we use is calibrated regularly, and certificates are checked each year by our Health and Safety certification body, Alcumus Safecontractor.


All relevant equipment is inspected and tested. We even carry out minor repairs as we find them.

Testing and Labelling:

You can be sure that any appliance that does not meet electrical safety requirements will be marked as such with a FAIL sticker and rendered inoperable. All those that pass will carry our PASS label which tells you, your staff and your customers that the appliance can be used in safety.

You can rest easy knowing that we have taken care of everything from your report, to remembering your next test.
