What is PAT Testing?
PAT testing is an examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure that they are safe to use. Our testers are trained to the City and Guilds (2377) standard in Portable Appliance Testing and are enhanced DBS checked.
What does it include?
Our quote to you includes:
- An inclusive rate regardless of whether it is for out of hours work, at night or the weekend
- All travel expenses
- Uniquely numbered easily identifiable labels on all appliances
- Replacement fuses where necessary.
- Certificate of Compliance and report issued and e-mailed to you as a pdf
- Timely reminders for re-tests at a frequency to suit you.
The level of inspection and testing required is dependent upon the risk of the appliance becoming faulty, the type of appliance, the nature of its use and the environment in which it is used. The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment provides the basis for our recommendation.
All customers now have a duty of care under the regulations to provide us with a full risk assessment of your equipment prior to us attending site, this is the bases that we use to form, the testing criteria. If you are unable to do this we can assist you.
