Shocking Experience

All businesses are legally required to ensure that all electrical appliances do not cause any danger to staff or visitors.

A periodic PAT test is a way of ensuring that you are meeting your legal requirements under the following acts and regulations –

  • The Management of Health and Safety at Work Act Regulations 1999.
  • The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.
  • Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.
  • The health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

Our testing is carried out by qualified engineers who have been DBS checked.

We only use the latest calibrated testers.

What should be tested?

All electrical items that are designed to be connected to mains power or a generator power supply that are not part of the fixed building wiring comes within the remit of PAT testing. This includes items that are not usually considered to be ‘Portable’ such as hand dryers, heated towel rails or built in dish washers, boilers and cookers. The testing frequency of these fixed items can often be longer than more portable items such as a vacuum cleaner or a hand held drill.

Battery powered items such as cordless drills only require a visual check but the battery charger used with them will require a full PAT test. All IT equipment should be tested along with any power cords that are used to power them. These power cords are treated as separate items as different standards apply to them. Electric cable extension leads must also be tested and these are often the most commonly failed items.

The testing frequency of each item is down to a risk assessment by the duty holder but there are recommended test frequencies based on the type of equipment and the environment where it is operated. For more details please contact us.
