Portable Appliance Testing

PAT Testing

The best way to ensure that your appliances are safe is to have them PAT tested regularly. Landlords and businesses can ensure that they are meeting their legal obligation to demonstrate duty of care to their employees and tenants.

Portable appliance tests involve a visual inspection of the appliance, its plug and lead. For equipment with an earth conductor, we will also inject test signals into the cable and appliance to ensure their integrity.

Upon completion of the inspection and testing we will supply a report with:

  • An inventory containing each appliance type, name, location and description
  • A full set of test results for each appliance tested
  • A full list of any failed items with an explanation of their failure
  • A visible pass or fail label on each appliance detailing the inspection date, next test due and the inspector’s signature

Our electricians will inspect your portable and handheld appliances, as well as your movable, stationary and IT equipment providing you with complete peace of mind.

Our PAT testing services include:

  • Fast and efficient testing – with minor repairs completed free of charge
  • A full test report
  • An annually programmed service

This is defined in the Duty of Care from the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and the Provision of Work Equipment Regulations 1988.

The Electricity at Work Act 1989 states you have a duty of care to test and inspect your portable appliances regularly in accordance with the IEE Code of Practice to reduce the risk of fire and shock!
