PAT Testing Services

There are many misunderstandings about PAT testing – who should do it, how often, why it is done, and whether it is the law.

PAT testing or portable appliance testing is an important part of any health & safety policy.

The Health & Safety Executive states that 25% of all reportable electrical accidents involve portable appliances. The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment.

This in effect requires the implementation of a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing. The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances:

1. Where appliances are used by employees.
2. Where the public may use appliances in establishments such as hospitals, schools, hotels, shops etc.
3. Where appliances are supplied or hired.
4. Where appliances are repaired or serviced.

Key Tasks
  • Visually inspect the appliance looking for defects.
  • Plugs are dismantled where so designed.
  • Terminals are checked for tightness and fuses are checked and replaced with the correct rating if incorrect or of a non- approved type.
  • Each item is put through a series of pre-set tests on specialised equipment to establish if it conforms to current legislation.
  • Those items that pass have a PASS label attached stating the date on which a re-test is due.
  • We produce a written report telling you the status of each of your appliances.
  • We maintain a copy of the report back at our office in case of loss or if required in the event of an enquiry.
Testing and Labelling

You can be sure that any appliance that does not meet electrical safety requirements will be marked as such with a FAIL sticker and rendered inoperable. All those that pass will carry our PASS label which tells you, your staff and your customers that the appliance can be used in safety.

You can rest easy knowing that we have taken care of everything from your report, to remembering your next test.

Our Inspection Procedure

We use a unique 6 digit bar coded system to produce a label for each appliance, which enables you to compare readings year on year. It can also help you if you keep an appliance inventory in your office or work place.
