Compass Community School Victoria Park – electrical equipment testing in schools

Here at Hawkesworth, we carry out over seven million electrical equipment tests (also known as PAT tests) a year. A large amount of these tests take place in schools, colleges and universities across the country.

One of the schools we carry out testing for is Compass Community School Victoria Park.

About Compass Community School Victoria Park

Compass Community School Victoria Park is located in Tipton in the West Midlands.

The school supports vulnerable pupils and students, helping them not only achieve educational qualifications but also develop as young people.

The problem

Schools in England are 1.7 times more likely to suffer a fire than other commercial buildings. This means thorough electrical equipment testing in an academic environment is vital to identify old, faulty and malfunctioning equipment.

Another issue schools face is all PAT testing ideally needs to be carried out outside of school hours to prevent the risk of disruption to students. This can sometimes be inconvenient and costly.

The solution

We test a wide range of equipment at the school, from televisions and computer monitors through to the microwaves and kettles in the staff room.

After testing, we provide detailed records that specify which equipment has passed and failed inspection, helping the school keep tabs on what is working safely and what they need to replace.

We start our testing early in the morning. This means we can be in and out of the school as quickly as possible; all while still providing a high-quality service.

We carry out work out of hours at no extra charge, helping schools keep to a tight and efficient budget.
