Fast, efficient PAT Testing in the North East

We provide every client with an in-depth PAT test Certificate (if you just get labels you have nothing). Our experienced engineers guarantee minimal disruption to your office and staff.

Portable Appliance Testing, also known as PAT Testing is required on all electrical equipment fitted with a plug (or intended to be) and involves testing all electrical appliances to ensure they meet legal electrical safety requirements.

This involves a thorough visual inspection by a competent PAT tester (if a repair is needed we do it automatically), followed by a series of electrical tests dependent on the appliance and its use. Some cheap PAT testing companies skip the visual and the repairs in order to record as many ‘tests’ as possible; which is a waste of your money.

DRA PAT Testing specialise in PAT testing offices equipment, and provide PAT testing in the North East of England.

Having more 5-Star Google reviews than any other North East company, with our wealth of experience, and as founder members of the Portable Appliance Testing Trade Association we have high standards, and are not a ‘slap a sticker on’ company – we actually want to work with you long term and help you improve safety in your business.

PAT testing for your business

Arranging your PAT testing couldn’t be easier… all we need to know is where you are and how many appliances you have (the working environment may help us too), you can use our online booking form to get started, even to choose your price, and give us an idea when you’d like the work carried out.

We’ll consult our diary and return to you by email an estimate for the work and proposed date to do it, all you need to do is confirm.

We’ll then send you confirmation of the booking and that’s it; job booked. If you have a plan for how often you need equipment testing let us know so we can put that into our system for reminders, or we can talk to you about the best recommended frequencies we would suggest based on our findings. In most offices this could mean not getting the IT equipment tested for another 2-3 years!

When we do the job we check visually each appliance is safe, changing fuses if necessary, repairing or replacing faulty plugs all included in the price so no hidden charges will be added to the invoice.

Our engineers are experienced, competent engineers trained to meet the high standards our business expects, guaranteeing you safer electrical equipment when we leave – our engineers are paid salary, not per item, so they are not rushed. They are encouraged to do repairs, tidy cables and so on, unlike contractors for cheaper suppliers. They also hold enhanced DBS reports and have passed Durham Police vetting checks.

Furthermore, the work we do is recorded on the machines we use, then downloaded to our cloud based office server system for storage. From that we create your reports, and hold them on file indefinitely should you ever need a copy.

What is PAT testing and why do you need it?

PAT testing is a process that we carry out on electrical equipment to make sure it is safe to continue using, so that it complies with legal regulations. The process involves an inspection of the plug, fuse, cable and outer casing of the appliance to check for wear and tear, correct use, etc. and electrical tests using a PAT tester machine to check for internal faults in the earthing and insulation.

At any point during the inspection there may be a need for the engineer to carry out repairs so that the appliance will pass PAT testing; if this is necessary we will do it automatically. If something can’t be repaired then it would be deemed too dangerous to continue using and would fail the test; we’d then advice you what can be done with it.

PAT testing is carried out on appliances fitted with a plug (or industrial adaptor) that can be easily disconnected from the mains power socket. Integrated electrical appliances such as fridges in a kitchen are included in the inspection even when the plug can’t be accessed.

You need to get PAT testing done so that you comply with UK workplace regulations for health and safety; a duty holder for the business is responsible for ensuring equipment is safe to use and continues to be so. Regular PAT tests are recognised as the best and most efficient way of confirming electrical equipment is safe; especially as you will get a Certificate to confirm it.
