What does the law say?

  • Periodic Inspection and Testing is required to ensure portable electrical equipment is maintained to appropriate safety standards to prevent danger.
  • Those who provide electrical equipment to be used at work are responsible for ensuring electrical appliances are safe.

That makes you responsible

  • The business owner, duty holder or self employed person is responsible for the safety of any electrical appliance they provide for use in the workplace.
  • We give our customers peace of mind by providing high standards and not cutting corners like cheaper suppliers.
  • You are responsible for appliance safety – even after PAT testing has been done.
