Seaward has launched a manual data entry software solution targeted at organisations that perform electrical safety testing and that maintain their own records.

The new Patguard Elements program is the latest addition to the company’s range of portable appliance testing (PAT) record-keeping solutions.

The software has been specifically designed for use with manual PAT testers that do not incorporate an internal memory for the storage of test results.

As a result, the software enables test results taken with manual PAT testers to be incorporated into a formal PC-based record-keeping system.

Patguard Elements is said to be in keeping with the HSE Memorandum of Guidance on the Electricity At Work Regulations 1989, which advises that records of maintenance, including test results, should be kept throughout the life of the equipment.

In doing so, the condition of equipment can be monitored and the effectiveness of preventative maintenance policies demonstrated.

Assets are visually presented using a tree structure showing the site and location of each asset.

Assets can be transferred between sites or locations using the drag-and-drop facility.

Full asset details and test result data can be entered via a single pop-up window.

Dates of the last test and retest date are shown, with a clear visual warning if the retest interval has been exceeded.

As well as enabling accurate records to be maintained, Patguard Elements also provides fast access to a number of inbuilt templates to prepare professional reports, certificates, work schedules and invoices.

The software also enables test history to be compared for trend analysis.

Professional test reports and certificates can be printed off directly or Acrobat reports can be produced for those who wish to operate a paperless system.

The introduction of the new Patguard Elements software complements the previously available Patguard Lite, Patguard Pro and Patguard Elite programs, which offer a range of direct data download and upload capabilities for PAT testers with an internal memory.
