PAT Testing Newcastle upon Tyne and the North East

DRA PAT Testing Ltd is one of the leading, most experienced PAT testing companies in the North East of England, based in Newcastle upon Tyne – We come to you at home or work to test your electrical equipment and carry out any necessary repairs giving you peace of mind that it is safe to continue using each appliance we pass.

To help you comply with health and safety regulations we will email to you a PAT Testing Certificate Report to show the results we obtained when carrying out our PAT tests. 

Regular electrical testing has to be carried out on any mains-powered electrical appliance, and the mains wiring to ensure safety standards are maintained to reduce the risk of fires and electrical accidents. 

What we can do for you

If you run any kind of business that has electrical equipment you are legally required to ensure that equipment is safe to use at all times so users and buildings are not put at risk. This includes all kinds of equipment that run off mains power including appliances with plugs (see Portable Appliance Testing) and those without – appliances without plugs are the ones that are fixed to walls or hard wired into the mains using a spur connection unit (see Fixed Appliance Testing).

There are different methods for checking electrical equipment is safe but the easiest and most recognised is that of inspection and testing of electrical equipment, more commonly known as “PAT Testing“.

What is PAT testing? PAT testing is a process that is carried out by a competent person to assess whether an electrical appliance is maintaining safety standards, being used appropriately and suitable for its use – read more.

It is PAT Testing that we do – we come to you at home or work, to inspect and test your electrical appliances, we will carry out maintenance needed and provide you with a report to confirm the appliance is safe to continue using it. We also offer free consultations to determine the most appropriate retest periods for your business needs and insurance.

DRA PAT Testing engineers are experts in what we do; we specialise in maintaining electrical equipment safety through PAT Testing in offices, schools, and rental properties. In fact we can operate in almost any working environment and have the specialist equipment to cope with anything up to 415 volts as is required by the IET Code of Practice.

Never forget – Electrical safety should be a priority action for any environment as electricity is one of life’s biggest killers, and a faulty appliance or wiring installation can really put your life at risk.

To keep you safe our PAT testing engineers carry out a thorough assessment of the site and appliance use, a visual inspection of each appliance and test each appliance that needs doing, then recommends retests intervals appropriate to those risks. We will discuss our findings with you to ensure that the frequency we recommend fits in with your business need and insurance, before putting it in place, which we will then manage for you moving forward. We then create a comprehensive PAT Testing Certificate Report which we email to you as a pdf document which includes all test results, itemised by item and location. When tests are next due we get in touch to remind you, so you don’t need to remember and always remain compliant.

✅ Experienced, PATTA registered engineers

We are an experienced company, established in 2009. All employees are moulded into our way of doing things, which is recognised as a high standard in the industry

✅ Free replacement plugs and fuses

Some companies charge to replace defective plugs and fuses, and as they seem to replace a lot you would ask were all those changes necessary? Which is why we don’t charge to replace them, so you know we only do genuine replacements. We also carry out remedial repairs free.

✅ Free advice on retest periods

PAT testing frequency is a big discussion point. How often PAT testing should be done caused a lot of confusion but at the end of the day it is determined by a risk assessment or HSE guidance.

✅ PAT Test Certificates including test readings

Every client receives a Certificate pdf document with itemised appliances for each site location and test results, guidance on failures and retest periods

✅ Cable management (tidying) included

Some companies charge extra to tidy cables under desks, we feel that if we leave you with a tidier working environment not only will you appreciate it but it will make our job a lot easier next time. Cables easily get messed up as more and more get added and IT teams don’t have the time to tidy, so we will do it for you

✅ Old pass labels removed

We hate seeing old messy labels left on appliances, so we aim to remove these before applying our own. Ours are clean, printed professional with unique ID numbers
