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.

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!
