If staff use appliances you provide, away from work, make sure they’re at work when the PAT testing is done

Equipment provided by the company for use elsewhere

So you get your office equipment PAT tested, but what about the gear in the vans, or the laptop Joe the sales guy uses at home?

Every electrical appliance the company owns needs to be checked to see that it is maintaining a safe standard, whether it is used in work or not.

So round up all your equipment on one day and arrange for us to come in and test it all for you.

An example is school teachers; they get given laptops and tablets – the chargers they’re given need testing as the school is responsible for them. Check out our PAT Testing in Schools page for more info.
