Why PAT Test?
Electrical equipment that is purchased from a reputable supplier should be of a satisfactory safety standard, but it must be maintained to stay that way, so that it does not deteriorate so far that it puts users at risk.
It is recognised that PAT Testing is the easiest and best way to check electrical equipment is safe, and the process that is followed to achieve this includes carrying out repairs to ensure the appliance is safe.
Using a local PAT testing company to do this is a benefit to you as it means if you need urgent help anytime you can call on your engineer to come out, who knows you and your business and will be the best possible help.
If you do not undertake regular electrical testing, such as PAT Testing, then you leave yourself or your business open to all kinds of issues, should an incident occur. For example, if it is proven that you didn’t undertake appropriate preventative maintenance which resulted in injury or death, this could lead to prosecution from the Health and Safety Executive; and your business insurance could be rendered null and void if it is proven that appropriate measures didn’t take place.
