Bars and Restaurants PAT Testing

Our specialist PAT testing engineers provide comprehensive inspection and testing of your electrical appliances

We work with a lot of hospitality venues in the North East, most in Newcastle / Tyne and Wear.

Some of the regions most well known bars use us to help them maintain electrical safety. Unfortunately we can’t name names as naughty rivals try to pinch the work, but rest assured you’re in safe hands with us.

I worked in bars for many years, and managed them in my younger days so understand the set up, so can really help you.

Most of the electrical equipment will be behind the bar or in the kitchens, but there’s sure to be a few items in the cellar too, DJ booth etc depending on your set up.

In most cases it’ll take around 2-3 hours to thoroughly inspect all your appliances, but some places will be less and some more but we’ll keep you informed.

We recommend trying to do this when you’re closed, we can start early in the morning if it helps. It’s very hard to test the bar whilst you’re open, and even harder to work in the kitchen when your chefs are making their amazing food, so lets find a convenient time to get the job done when it doesn’t affect your team.

Regular PAT testing can help you reduce insurance premiums, as it equates to a risk assessment of your electrical equipment, helping to determine the safety levels in your business, and the need for more or less frequent inspections.

Regular PAT tests are considered to be the most effective way to comply with your obligations for workplace health and safety, and electrical regulations – failure to ensure electrical equipment is safe can be considered to be a failure to comply with the law.

Have you heard of Newcastle City Council’s Late Night Levy?

It is a requirement that licensed premises authorised to supply alcohol between midnight and 6am will have to pay an annual levy of between £299 and £4,400, depending on their rateable value and whether the premises primarily or exclusively are used to sell alcohol for consumption on the premises.

The council offers a reduction for premises that apply for the “Best Practice Premises Inspection Programme” and succeed in achieving a rating which determines compliance.

Part of the programme is PAT testing – if you get your premises PAT testing done, and keep it up to date, it can help you towards a discount on your Late Night Levy fee.
