Local PAT testing in Sunderland

To comply with the UK’s Health and Safety regulations, and to ensure your insurance policy is valid, you need to be able to prove that electrical equipment is safe to use; the best way to do this is to have a PAT test carried out on them.

We provide local PAT Testing in Sunderland to businesses of all shapes and sizes – if you need some PAT testing doing then get in touch.

We can help you with your electrical testing needs including:

  1. Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
  2. Fixed Appliance Testing (FAT)
  3. Fixed Wiring Inspections (EICR)

Our engineers are based in the North East, so don’t worry we’re not about to send someone who doesn’t know the local area, and you get the benefit of working with the same engineer(s) long term as the same one of us will keep coming back, as he/she will be the best person to manage your equipment safety as we’ll know the history of it.

Regular PAT testing helps to keep your legal obligations for electrical safety in check, and also keeps your insurance policy valid; but perhaps most of all it gives you peace of mind that your electrical equipment is safe.

What’s involved in the PAT Test?

We will inspect and test all your portable electrical appliances, and can give you guidance on what to do with other electrical systems too.

This is what we do..

  1. Firstly we check our own safety – can the appliance be switched off safely, etc.
  2. Then can the appliance be switched off – if something can’t be switched off, tell us asap.
  3. We check appliance is suitable for the environment it is in
  4. Then we check the appliance, starting with the plug, then the cable, then the appliance.
  5. If the cable detaches from the appliance it is tested independently.
  6. If repairs have to be carried out we will do so; nearly always included in the price and supply parts as required.
  7. If the appliance passes all checks we will label it and the results are recorded on our PAT testers.
  8. If it fails, we photograph it, record it and mark it with a fail label. We report it to the site contact too.
  9. On completion of the job we feed anything necessary back to our site contact then download the results.
  10. Using the results obtained and our risk assessments we compile our report which will be sent to you as a pdf either before we leave the site, or within 24 hours.

What’s included in the price?

  1. Rewiring of plugs and replacement parts
  2. Supply and fit of replacement plugs to meet British Standards
  3. Supply and fit of replacement fuses (3, 5, 10 and 13amps)
  4. A tidy up and sort out of messy cables
  5. Guidance on how to improve safety measures
  6. Unique ID numbered label for every appliance
  7. Failure report detailing failures and actions
  8. Itemised report of passed appliances including electrical readings
  9. Certificate of compliance
  10. Reminders for retests so you’re always compliant

As always, an excellent and reliable service. Due to covid19 guidelines we only had certain times available but Richard... was more than accommodating and offered an alternative suggestion which meant we were able to get the whole school PAT tested, which we are so grateful for. Thank you!read more

I have known Richard since he set up and developed our Seaham Harbour website some 8 years ago. He managed the website... for a number of years before he trained me and another member of our U3A to manage it ourselves. I’m pleased to say he still has overall control and we can always contact him if we encounter any problems. We haven’t had many problems but when we do Richard is very helpful and approachable, taking on the problem if we can’t solve it out more

We came across DRA last year having been recommended to use them for our office PAT testing. We obtained a number of... quotes and DRA were the most competitive. They duly completed the work. Found their service exemplary. We were duly contacted by Richard this year 4 weeks ahead of our renewal date to remind us that the PAT testing was due for renewal. We had no hesitation in asking his firm to complete the work. They have been out and we are compliant for another 12 months. They provide a great service and would highly recommend. They politely remind you when the testing is due for renewal so you are always more

I used DRA PAT testing to test all of my professional audio equipment, I was attracted by the price and the excellent... reviews I had heard from many others in my field. He was highly competitive on price, he arrived and showed an amazing amount of customer service compared to others I had used previously, he was more than happy to offer free advice and went above and beyond what i have had before with other companies, such as explaining correct fuse ratings, proper earthing etc. I have already booked him for next year and will certainly be recommending him to all my friends and more
