What our clients think of us
Why is PAT Testing important?
✅ The law requires thorough inspection and testing to ensure electrical equipment is properly maintained – Portable Appliance Testing is inspection and testing for electrical equipment fitted with a plug.
✅ A PAT engineer will assess the suitability of an appliance for the environment it is being used in. When PAT is completed, you’ll be provided with a record of results and PAT Test Certificate – a record of maintenance, which is a requirement of The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998
✅ PAT testing records can be used to demonstrate compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 as they confirm that your electrical systems are being maintained to prevent danger.
✅ Regular PATs check that workplace electrical equipment, devices and systems are maintained in good working order and repair, to comply with The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992
✅ Regular inspections and testing (PAT) of electrical equipment in residential property help you comply with The Housing Act 2004 (England and Wales)
✅ Carrying out PAT tests on appliances supplied as part of a rental agreement, before the start of every tenancy help a landlord to comply with The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s guidance.
✅ An electrical equipment test will check that an appliance is safe, and carries a genuine ‘CE’ mark when first supplied, hired, sold second hand, or as part of accommodation lettings to help you comply with The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016
✅ If the plug of an appliance does not meet the Plugs and sockets etc. (Safety) Regulations 1994 we will change it for one that does.
PAT testing is important because it confirms whether or not an appliance is safe to use (by inspecting and testing); the engineer will usually carry out repairs if there is a fault (maintenance) and it provides you with a PAT Testing Certificate (records) – all of which you are required to do to comply with UK workplace regulations and insurance.
