About our PAT Testing Service
PAT testing reduces risk
One of the biggest electrical problems in the workplace is the use of portable appliances, such as computers, kettles, toasters, etc. but it is also a problem that is not going to go away. Modern technology is improving all the time so you’d think appliances are getting safer but with the huge surge of cheap (and fake) goods coming onto the market the risks are actually higher – appliances are no longer built to last.
One of the main problems with portable appliances is they each have a flexible insulated cable to connect it to the mains via a plug and socket, that means it can be moved easily. Therefore, it can also be damaged and tampered with easily. Additionally many cables are not permanently connected to an appliance, so can be used elsewhere or come under excessive strain – all increasing the risk of damage.
Because of these risks, portable appliances are responsible for a high proportion of electrical accidents in the workplace.

PAT testing Northumberland and across the North East
We’re based in North Tyneside with easy links to all of Northumberland. We know it’s not always easy to arrange service industries to come to some Northumberland locations but we are happy to enjoy a nice drive into the beautiful countryside. We do work for the National Trust among others in the area and regularly drive up to Kielder, Alnwick and Morpeth. We also have clients in Hexham.
