DRA PAT Testing provide PAT Testing for hair and beauty salons, shops etc. to help their owners comply with health and safety regulations, helping to keep staff and customers safe. 

Hair salons, shops, cafe’s etc. all have a heightened risk as there is a chance water is going to come into contact with electrical equipment so you need to make sure that equipment maintains safe standards; for example, hairdryers and wet-hands, curlers and wet hair, toasters getting too close to the sink. 

Water, being a conductor of electricity, poses a significant risk. 

A defective appliance that comes into contact with water, presents a real risk of giving a user an electric shock. 

So ensuring appliances maintain safe standards is essential. 

Getting periodic portable appliance testing carried out is the recommended method for ensuring equipment is maintained; we’ll carry out any necessary repairs and recommend ways to improve safety measures. 

Contact us to discuss your PAT testing needs or to arrange to have your electrical equipment tested. 

Wherever you are located in the North East we will come to you to test your appliances

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Have used DRA PAT Testing for a number of years now. Hassle free, brilliant service. Provides reminders as to when your testing is due which is helpful. Has also informed me in the past that some items aren’t annually tested – saving me money rather than just going ahead and doing it. Excellent friendly serviceFree index logo for reviews

Why Choose DRA PAT Testing?

DRA PAT Testing Ltd is a privately owned local pat testing company that specialises in the inspection and testing of electrical equipment making us the best choice if you want to make sure your appliances are safe. We are members of the Portable Appliance Testing Trade Association, qualified through City and Guilds, DBS checked, CSCS approved and fully insured. 

We can offer you guaranteed peace of mind that when we say equipment is safe, it is; because we know we work to high standards – we do not charge to supply replacement plugs and fuses, we give free advice on best retest periods, we manage your electrical safety for you. 

Business owner, Richard Ayre, is also on the committee that runs the national standards organisation, the Portable Appliance Testing Trade Association. 

✅ 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
