The Benefit of PAT Testing

  • YOU are responsible for providing SAFE electrical equipment to your staff, and other users.
  • YOU are responsible If they become dangerous and cause an accident.

If there is an electrical appliance fault that leads to an accident at your workplace, your insurance company, and possibly the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) may hold an enquiry to see who is responsible; it is now that you will experience the real benefits of using DRA Solutions to carry out your PAT Testing.

The technical expertise of our electrical testing engineers will ensure that all equipment is inspected correctly, giving you peace of mind that you have followed the correct procedures, in the event of an enquiry. 

How often do we need PAT Testing?

Electrical Inspections should be carried out as often as your health and safety policy, and risk assessment requires it. There is no set rule, although we can provide guidance on the best course of action. If you carry out regular maintenance or user checks we can amend the frequencies. However, some insurance companies insist on annual testing so it’s worth checking with them.

What does PAT Testing Cost?

The cost is dependent on the number of appliances to be tested, so the best action to take is to request a quotation from us. As an example; if you have only a small number of appliances (up to 100) we charge £1.25 per item with a small initial fee, but high numbers command rates as low as 60p per item.

Electrical Appliance (PAT) Testing 

Electrical PAT Testing of appliances is something that needs doing to protect your users, and workplace; faulty electrical appliances can be very dangerous. You shouldn’t cut corners by going for the cheapest option, or the longest frequency – go for a PAT Testing company who will offer you a high standard of service at a time to suit you.

Insurance and Electrical Safety

Most insurance companies now require you to operate to the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 on a regular basis dependent on risk assessment; Inspection and Testing of electrical appliances (PAT) is part of this. However where the HSE may say you don’t need testing annually your insurance company will differ; most prefer annual inspections. In addition the HSE suggestion in 2012 that annual electrical PAT testing was too often was taken out of contest and misrepresented – make sure you get specialist PAT Testing advice before you follow that guidance.  Failure to meet these requirements can render your building, contents, employers and public liabilities invalid which means if you are found in breach of Health and Safety your insurance may not cover the costs incurred.
