Providing PAT testing in schools and reducing the risk of fire
Giving you peace of mind that your electrical equipment is safe and you remain compliant
PAT testing reduces the risk of fires in schools
In the past 3 years the fire brigade has been called to almost 2000 school fires across the UK; with faulty electrical equipment and electrics among the leading causes of these school fires. This study was carried out by Zurich Municipal, which found that schools in England are 1.7 times more likely to suffer a fire than other commercial buildings.
PAT testing in schools
Regular PAT testing in schools will help to reduce the risk of an electrical fault, which will in turn reduce the chances of an electrical fire occurring.
We can carry out our work outside of the normal school day to reduce disruption, starting as early as 6am and working until late at night if necessary.
All our school PAT testing engineers are DBS checked, qualified and competent in electrical inspections and testing.
DRA PAT testing carries out electrical equipment testing in schools across the North East of England, including a school in County Durham that said our “Engineer was very efficient and completed the inspection within the day“.
DRA PAT Testing: providing an electrical equipment testing service in schools across the North East
DRA PAT Testing Ltd is Newcastle upon Tyne and the North East‘s leading (electrical) PAT testing company with more 5 star reviews on Google than any other electrical testing company.
With over 10 years experience of electrical equipment testing in schools we have developed a system to guarantee you minimal disruption, with sensible guidance and peace of mind that not only do your appliances maintain safety standards but you remain complaint with the legal regulations at all times.
We recommend that secondary schools, and colleges are only tested during school holidays or on weekends, but primary and nursery schools can be tested on a normal school day.
For PAT testing in Primary schools we can go in early with the caretaker to get the classrooms done before students come in.
We are also able to provide you with other electrical testing including fixed wiring inspections (EICR), emergency lighting, fire alarm testing and thermal image surveys, all carried out by our NICEIC registered electrical inspector.
We are a small but experienced team, qualified, PAT testing expert trained and competent with CSCS, DBS, Police checks, PATTA registered and CHAS accredited. We cover all of the North East of England from our Newcastle upon Tyne base.
