Healthcare PAT testing

Our PAT testing engineers are experienced and professional, providing a comprehensive inspection and testing service for all your electrical appliances. All our work complies with the latest HSE requirements and industry standards. A regular PAT testing programme helps you to ensure your electrical system is safe for continued use.

We provide an efficient and professional PAT testing service with minimal disruption to your medical centre, with free remedial repairs and promptly issued PAT test Certificates, to help you comply with the latest electrical safety regulations and CQC requirements.

Healthcare PAT testing should be repeated as your risk assessment requires, although in most cases the CQC demands equipment is checked every 1-2 years; an initial inspection by us can count as a good starting point for the assessment, from there between us we should be able to set up an effective retest period to keep residents safe.

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.

Why do we need to PAT Test?

PAT testing is the best way to make sure that your workplace complies with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. The ‘regs’ cover the electrical safety element of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. The regs require employers make sure that electrical appliances use is safe, and that future risks are assessed and minimised as much as possible. This basically means that you need to assess the risks and take action to prevent accidents occurring; regular PAT tests help to complete a risk assessment and to reduce the chances of accidents occurring through fault finding.

The regulations are not purely to prevent electric shocks, but also mean employers must take into account the suitability, design, construction and installation of electrical systems used for specific tasks in the workplace.
