Church PAT testing

Whether you’re enquiring about PAT testing the electrical equipment in your church, church hall or another place of worship we can help – all facilities catered for here.

We work with many Churches around the region.

PAT testing (Portable Appliance Testing) is the best method for checking electrical equipment with a plug is safe to continue using, and helps you to comply with workplace regulations.

Dodgy electrical equipment is known to be the cause of numerous accidents and fires in Churches and other places of worship.

Our Church PAT Testing Service

We specialise in PAT testing electrical equipment, so whether you need your Church, church hall or other place of worship safety testing we can help! We tend to find the likes of sound equipment and kitchen appliances in most religious environments, which are standard type appliances we can inspect and test relatively quickly making it easier for you to get this work done.

We provide an efficient, reliable and cost-effective service with minimal disruption by experienced engineers whose work gives you peace of mind that your equipment is safe to continue using.

As an experienced PAT testing company we can operate in all environments, so even if your business is not exclusively office we can still help you.

  • Free and automatic remedial repairs
  • Free replacement plugs & fuses
  • Free cable management to ensure efficiency, safety and tidiness
  • Minimal disruption guaranteed

We’re also fully DBS checked giving you a bit more confidence and security about the engineer coming into your premises.

We have experience working for Church of England, the Catholic Church, Spiritual Churches, Gospel Churches and many more.

If you have server systems we can work with you to test them out of hours, once in a five year spell (they don’t need doing every year either), and can check them visually or even with thermal imagery at regular intervals.  Some companies say they will do a ‘full visual inspection’ on your server but if they can’t unplug it they can’t fully inspect it.

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.

On completion of the job you will receive a fully itemised PAT Testing Certificate Report with guidance on what we have done and ways in which you could improve your office appliance safety.

Included in the price is remedial repairs to the existing plug and cable, replacement plugs and fuses, guidance on retests, timely reminders and your fully itemised PAT Testing Certificate Report sent within 24 hours. On top of that we can also do your electrical installation inspection too (EICR).

Frequently asked questions about Church PAT Testing

What are the benefits of PAT Testing?

  • It reduces the risk of injury or death to yourself, employees, visitors, etc.
  • It reduces the risk of fire through faulty electrical equipment
  • It reduces the risk of fire from misuse of electrical equipment
  • It helps you fulfil your legal obligations for a safe workplace

Many insurance policies require PAT testing; if you do not maintain safe equipment and there is an accident your insurance policy may be void.

How often should we get the church PAT testing done?

Many churches get their testing done every year, which is perfectly fine and best practice. Getting appliances tested every year ensures you keep on top of things and any issues arising will likely get fixed before they become too much of an issue.

However, if you follow HSE guidance you don’t need to do that; when we see your set up, and have tested all your equipment we’ll be able to best guide you. In most cases a test every couple of years should be enough.
