At Catten College we are continually striving to assist the businesses we work with to conform with all regulations.  With this in mind we now offer complete health and safety appraisals and electrical testing (PAT).  Complete details are shown below.  PAT testing starts at a mere 60p per item for those companies which have learners from Catten College.

If you have any further questions about these services please contact our Health and Safety Advisor, Gareth Coe on 01206 366199 or by e-mail

Health and Safety Policy Preparation

Catten College will construct your policy using the data gained in a site visit.  It is important to remember that under section 2 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 any employer who has five or more employees must produce a written safety policy.

In this document key responsibilities for health and safety will be recognised, and the general arrangements for health and safety within the organisation be outlined.

As it is intended to be a living document, it must be reviewed on a regular basis, and revised to account for any changes in the law or in working procedures. With this in mind the college will keep a copy of your H & S policy on file and thus will be able to assist you easily in any changes that need to be made.

The assessment will be carried out by our fully trained Health and Safety Advisor.  We will provide you with a document that fulfils your company’s legal requirements.

Risk Assessments

  • Identify the hazards
  • Decide who could be affected
  • Evaluate how likely employees and others are to be hurt and how effective your existing precautions are
  • Decide what can be done to eliminate or minimise the risk
  • Record the outcome of the health and safety risk assessment and suggest any corrective action that needs to be taken

Portable appliance testing (PAT) – In-service Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment.

Catten College can now offer complete In-service Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment.

The Electricity at Work Regulations (1989) require that “All electrical systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, any danger” and “It is the duty of every employer and self employed person to comply with the provision of these Regulations.”

Our qualified tester will provide:

  • Formal Visual Inspection
  • Replacement Fuses
  • Earth Bond Safety Test *
  • All appliances labelled
  • Polarity Inspection and Test *
  • Insulation Safety Test

A complete asset register and certificate of conformity will be provided.

Please note the extra special price of 60p per item for those businesses which have learners with Catten College.
