Very professional team and very proactive - Rob always checks in to see what is needed and diaries the annual service checks for our rental property. So easy to work with, everything is online for invoicing which being remote from the property helps massively. Great service and great price - thank you!

Is PAT testing a legal requirement?

Regular PAT testing will help you comply with “Health and Safety at Work”

If there is an accident (or fire) at your work, caused by faulty electrical equipment, the investigator will ask to see evidence that maintenance has been carried out to prevent the accident occurring – to confirm the appliance was safe. 

More information is available on our PAT testing information page, but what this means is the investigator needs to see documentary evidence that the equipment was checked and deemed safe within an acceptable period of time before the accident took place. If you have a PAT test Certificate dated within that period, that details the appliances checks were carried out and the results obtained were satisfactory then that will help protect you.

How often should you PAT test electrical equipment?

Considering what we said above, PAT testing frequency should be carried out often enough to protect you if an accident occurs or to prevent the accident occurring in the first place. This could be anywhere between monthly on a building site up to every 5 years for servers in an office environment; in most cases a check every couple of years will suffice. Many workplaces get testing done every year, which may not be strictly necessary but is best practice for peace of mind, ease and is preferred by insurers. It’s also the requirement for any location where equipment is used by the public (hotel rooms), children (e.g. schools), etc.

We discuss all the options with our clients to ensure we work together to prevent accidents occurring in the first place.
