PAT testing Laptops for Schools, especially for home schooling shouldn’t be forgotten. With the current Coronavirus lockdown refurbished laptops are getting sent all over the UK from schools to student homes, but are you sure the power lead and charger for the laptop are the right original device, or a recommended by the manufacturer replacement?
A cheaper device bought by the company doing refurbishments may be from abroad, and not meet British Standards. Even if it does, and is all genuine, it’s not brand new so should be checked before being released by the school.
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 business, with free remedial repairs and promptly issued PAT test Certificates, to help you comply with the latest electrical safety regulations.
A laptop is battery powered so in itself it doesn’t require a PAT test, although it does need to be visually checked by a competent person as part of your obligations for electrical equipment safety. We can check that when we check the power lead and power adaptor to make sure they meet appropriate safety standards, giving you peace of mind before sending it to a pupils home.

You also need to do a risk assessment to determine, once issued, if you still own the laptop, when you will need to check it again.
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.
