Going underground

Published:  30 April, 2021

Investment in advanced SEAWARD PAT (portable appliance testing) kits is helping London Underground comply with important electrical safety requirements.

Responsibility for compliance testing falls mainly to the maintenance department where electrical works controller Shaun Littleton oversees a team of 10 engineers, who regularly check the in-service safety of tens of thousands of items at 500 sites.

This responsibility requires a demanding approach to safety management that links test schedules with appliance identification systems and maintaining comprehensive test records for all items tested. To achieve this, London Underground has been a long-term user of Seaward PAT testing equipment, currently using 12 hand-held Apollo 600+ PAT testers with PATGuard 3 testing software.

These lightweight, versatile and compact testers together with Seaward Elite test and tag printers, can be conveniently carried by engineers in backpacks.
