PAT Testing of your portable electrical appliances is what we specialise in. We, DRA PAT Testing Limited are experts in portable appliance testing in offices, schools, shops, salons, doctors surgeries etc. 

We come to your workplace or home to inspect and test equipment to make sure it is safe for use, and being used safely. 

PAT testing

We provide a bespoke to you, risk based PAT testing service, unique to your circumstances. The service we provide is different to most of our competitors as we don’t insist on annual retests; which is something that makes us unique, and the reason why our clients tend to stay with us long term.

The law makes you responsible for ensuring electrical equipment is safe and leaves it up to you to do risk assessments to determine what needs doing and how often, but we understand that you are unlikely to have the necessary knowledge to do that, so we do it for you. 

Automatically we assess the risks associated with the portable appliances you’re using, and the environment they are being used in and recommend the most appropriate frequencies for retests. See our PAT testing Frequency page for more information. 

We also manage the retest periods for you, and adjust them as necessary. We keep you informed and remind you with plenty of time when due dates are approaching. We also provide advice on how you could improve electrical safety. 

Furthermore, if we find damaged sockets we report them to you – other companies charge you to do this. We also check your fixed wiring inspections are up to date, and if not, can manage this for you too. 

We provide every client with a comprehensive PAT Testing Report including certificate, listing all appliances tested and their results.

DRA PAT Testing test a lot of appliances in Sunderland for companies including the automotive industry, printers, even debt management (not that we’ve had to use their services… yet). 

On a sunny day we like a nice drive to Seaburn or Whitburn to test appliances at the arcades or fishmongers; grab a coffee and watch the waves off Roker pier. 

However, it was in a doctors surgery in Sunderland that Richard suffered an unfortunate electric shock, luckily he was well grounded at the time!
