APOLLO SERIES Seaward’s latest generation portable appliance testers establish a new approach to electrical safety testing.

Leading the new range is the Apollo 600, a multi-purpose PAT tester with an on board digital camera to capture images for inclusion in risk and inspection records. When used with PATGuard 3 software, it provides unrivalled results management including photographs for visual evidence.

The Apollo 500 has the same range of PAT tests as the Apollo 600, but does not include a camera, and is designed for dedicated plug and play electrical testing. Both testers incorporate all of the safety tests recommended by the latest IET Code of Practice, including


ORIGINALS The growing appeal of A-SAFE products within the food and beverage industry has been highlighted by a recent installation at U.S beverage experts, Eight O’Clock Coffee.

A number of A-SAFE products were used on the installation, including Pedestrian Barriers with gates, Column Protectors, Rack Guards, Kerb Barriers, Traffic Barrier Plus and Dock Rollers.

As with all A-SAFE installations, traffic management was a key concern. Eight O’Clock Coffee wanted to prevent employees from straying into areas where forklift truck traffic was active. A-SAFE used Pedestrian Barriers to reduce vehicle/pedestrian crossover points and clearly segregate vehicle routes from pedestrian walkways. The barriers’ modular design allowed green gates to be fitted


for permanently connected and 3 phase electrical equipment.

Both the new Apollo testers, alongside the latest PATGuard 3 test data management software, are designed to comply with the latest best practice advice on maintaining a risk based approach to managing workplace safety.

The Apollo series testers include all of the electrical safety tests required by the IET Code of Practice including earth continuity, insulation resistance at 250V or 500V, protective conductor current, touch current, IEC lead polarity and portable RCD trip time, without the risk of tripping the installation RCD.

In addition to testing plug in appliances, the Apollo is fully equipped to test permanently connected and 3 phase electrical equipment as required by the new Code of Practice.

The new Apollo testers can be used with battery or mains power and include a built-in risk assessment tool, suggested re-test interval calculator and Bluetooth and USB

into the walkways at convenient safe crossing points.

Elsewhere in the warehouse internal structures needed to be protected from vehicle impacts. A-SAFE Column Protectors neatly protect vital structures from these vehicle impacts;

connections for easy results storage. Also included is the ability to transfer data remotely using a mobile phone or tablet.

first by providing an absorbent barrier that dissipates collision forces, secondly being fixed sufficiently away from the actual structure to avoid any impact with it at all.

Tanya Bryan, Engineering Manager at Eight O’Clock Coffee, commented: “I went with A-SAFE because I believed the maintenance costs would be lower and the installation seemed easier. I was trying to achieve a safer environment for the forklift truck drivers through visual safeguards and my biggest issue was excessive damage due to forklift impact.”

A-SAFE barriers are also ‘wipe-clean’, non-toxic and resistant to chemicals and they do not corrode or flake like traditional barriers, meaning rust or scraps of old paint do not corrupt food hygiene standards.
