Why Power Testing?
Quite simply, we believe our company values are industry-leading, ensuring value for money and an excellent working relationship with any size client.
Our organisational culture is based on safety by consistently promoting and following our internal “Speak Up” and “WorkSafe” policies. This encourages staff to discuss any safety issues they may see without the fear of repercussions.
Our WorkSafe principles help us stay focused on remaining safe at all times:
- All jobs are done safely, no matter how urgent or small they are.
- Each of us has a personal responsibility for our safety and that of those around us.
- We must ensure we routinely and visibly put people to work safely.
- Each of us will take responsibility to spot, report and deal appropriately with hazards when and where we see them.
These principles have ensured our excellent safety record and we are proud to be OHSAS 18001 Certified (occupational health and safety management).
‘To ensure a safe and secure future for our people by delivering the best electrical solutions to our customers.’
Our people are our success. Power Testing Ltd is a family-run business, trading successfully in the electrical engineering and maintenance industry since 1966. We employ around 60 staff, over a dozen of whom have more than 20 years’ service. Several employees are the 2nd generation to work with us and are on first-name terms with our many regular clients. As well as long-standing staff members, we also have other electrical engineers who have extensive experience working in utilities companies and private networks.
We invest heavily in our people, with both internal and external training to ensure their skills, knowledge and understanding are all up to date and of the highest level. From committing to all staff being First Aid and IOSH trained to an internal mentoring programme, continuous professional development is one of Power Testing’s main values. This has led to an interested, diverse and highly skilled work force who love a challenge.
Keeping a loyal, experienced and engaged work force of this size has produced a lean, responsive SME (small medium enterprise) able to adapt quickly to the changing needs of our customers, from small businesses to international, blue chip electrical companies.
