This is Top Secret information
Our competitors don’t want you to know this – Portable Appliance Testing should be done when you require it, and then you determine when it needs doing again, based on your assessment of the risks involved.
Check your insurers agree with your plan and go for it; you should up date your risk assessments on a regular basis, but as long as nothing changes you should be ok to continue doing what you decide. We’re more than happy to help you with this.
Plenty of companies will recommend you get testing done annually, which is best practice and preferable with insurance companies but it’s not set in stone; providing you have a risk assessment in place, and your insurer is happy, then you should be ok.
We’re acredited by CHAS and the PAT Testing Network, we work to the guidance of the IEE Code of Practice, hold Construction Skills Certification Scheme cards and are CRB checked. In addition all our team complete the PAT Testing Expert training course and are qualified by City and Guilds.
Our engineers work efficiently, quietly, and professionally ensuring minimal disruption to your staff, customers and guests. In addition we remove all old labels and apply our discreetly.
PAT Testing in the North East
We operate from our bases in Newcastle upon Tyne, and Durham City, giving us easy access to the whole of the North East meaning we don’t have to charge inflated call out fees, and can keep our ‘per item’ rates relatively low. Our minimum invoice charge is just £45.00.
How often is PAT testing Required?
Electrical appliance testing should be done as often as you feel it is needed. Your electrical equipment should always be safe to use, so whether you do regular maintenance or testing make sure it is sufficient for the needs of your business.
