Professional PAT testing services

PAT Testing must be carried out across a range of electrical appliances and equipment in order to ensure that they are safe to use. Although many electrical safety defects can typically be found through visual examination, there are some faults that can only be found through PAT Testing. Our experts will be able to provide PAT testing on any number of items, so you can be sure that your business meets health and safety requirements.

The electricity at work regulations 1989

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 make it a legal requirement for electrical equipment to be regularly maintained to prevent danger in the workplace. While the law does not state how this should be done or how often, inspections of electrical equipment must be arranged at least yearly to protect employees.

Why you should get your equipment PAT tested

It reduces health and safety risks

A faulty electrical appliance can cause an electric shock, which can end up taking someone’s life, so this is no matter that can be taken lightly. PAT testing can stop this from ever occurring.

Your appliances will last longer

Electrical appliances are not exactly cheap to buy. So, it is a good idea to get them tested regularly to ensure they remain in perfect working order.

It helps to keep your insurance valid

If the electrical devices at your company are not inspected as regularly or thoroughly as they should be, your insurance firm could void your cover.

It helps you financially

When you invest in regular PAT testing and maintenance of all portable electrical appliances in your building, you are saving yourself a lot of money in the long run.
