ATLAS Certified

After around 8 months and a lot of training, auditing and documentation, we have finally been certified
by the Association of Technical Lightning and Access Specialists (ATLAS).

This will enable us to tender for future lightning protection works and we will now also be exploring all other potential lightning protection works with our existing clients.

Well done all involved, especially Alan Ager, Pat Templeman, Brad Tomlin, Mark Morgan and Kevin Smith.

End of An Era

On Friday, we said goodbye to two pillars of Power Testing – Mike and Mandy Sansom, following their retirement.

Mike was with Power Testing for 33 years and occupied several key roles, such as Engineer, Authorising Engineer and of course, Director.

Mandy was with the company for over 20 years, providing accurate administration support in the office, as well as being our office Mum.

But more importantly, they provided the foundation to make the company what it is today – successful.

It was great to give them such a wonderful send off on Friday – even though Mike’s signed Fulham shirt may have bad memories from this season!!

From all at Power Testing, we wish you the very best on your retirement – thanks for all the memories.

                                 

Power Testing win 2019 RoSPA Gold Award

For the 2nd year in a row, Power Testing have won the RoSPA Gold Award for our ongoing commitment to raising health and safety standards within the company.

The RoSPA award is internationally renowned as one of the most prestigious health and safety awards, and is the longest – running industry award scheme in the U.K.

We are extremely proud to have received this award again and credit goes to all our people, who continue to demonstrate a great awareness and understanding of the importance of health and safety within the company.

We will be taking some of the team to the Awards Ceremony on the 18th June 19 at the ExCeL in London – watch out for photos of the day.

 

And the Winner Is….

Following the announcement of our participation in this year’s World Cup-on-Sea 2019 Trophy event, we decided to run a ‘Create the Power Testing Football Kit’ Competition and after many entries and some difficult decisions, the lightning bolt stole the show.

The winning kit was submitted by Dan Cann with the colours matching our company branding and the lightning bolt representing our work – and speed hopefully!

As well as a kit we needed a team name and Tom Hughes came up with the winner – Power Rangers – which will be included on the back of the shirts.

Training Begins…

Following our announcement of taking part in the World Cup-on-Sea 2019, training has begun to find the best of the best (or maybe just the best of a bad bunch 🤦‍♂️)

Over the next 3 months training will take place every Monday between 7 – 8pm at PlayFootball The Chase.

The weekly training sessions give our Power Rangers the time to polish up on areas such as speed, technique, strength & stamina as well as gel as a football team for the upcoming event!
