PAT Testing

PAT Testing (Portable Appliance Testing) is the standard method of checking the safety of any electrical appliance that has a plug.

Our PAT Testing Service

A fully qualified PAT testing engineer will attend site to carry out your portable appliance testing in accordance with the IET Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment. Each engineer is qualified to city & guilds 2377 certification and has had enhanced DBS vetting.

At the client’s request, each appliance on site will be visually inspected and tested for electrical safety. If there are sensitive areas such as comms equipment, fire alarm or CCTV that cannot be switched off a full visual inspection can be carried out.

Each appliance will be labelled with a unique barcoded number and will state the retest date once fully tested.

If any appliances are deemed ‘not fit for use’ and ‘fail’ after the electrical safety inspection the client will be informed and a detailed explanation of any problems found.

Upon completion of the job the client will receive a full report and certificate.
