Recently I have been involved with sorting out some power issues - we have too many extension strips here and there and so I have been getting quotes for new power points etc.
Whilst doing this I have come across various things about PAT testing and it occurs to me that in the 7 years I have been here, it has never been done. (well, I think the site manager started it once, but he didnt get to my IT suites).
I have been looking at the regulations and it doesn't exactly state that we HAVE to PAT test, only that we have to make sure equipment is safe (and PAT testing is the obvious way, I suppose).
I am concerned that things have not been PAT tested, and I know that staff bring in their own stuff which of course has also never been tested.
I have been advised that this could affect the school's insurance in the case of an electrical fire - can anyone confirm this is true?
I really think this needs to be sorted out and I don't quite know how to go about it. If I just'tell' the head he will agree and do nothing
