​Portable Appliance Testing (PAT).


Health and safety regulations require that electrical appliances are in a safe working order and maintained to prevent harm to workers. For many companies with no in-house maintenance teams this can be difficult to keep on top of.

Our PAT Testing service gives you peace of mind by identifying electrical faults and offering advice to make sure your business avoids dangerous accidents.

During a PAT test we will conduct a visual inspection of the equipment and any flexible cables for good condition. This includes:

  • Checking plugs for compliance, damage and correct secure fitting

  • Ensuring fuses are fitted with the correct rating

  • Checking cables for wear and tear; heat damage; cuts and abrasions

  • Checking appliance housing for compliance and damage: cracks, dents and corrosion

  • Checking earthing of appliance meets acceptable standards

  • Ensuring the insulation protecting the conductors is not broken

  • Measuring the leakage current to the earth while the appliance is operating

  • Ensuring the appliance is fully operational

  • Following the testing you will receive a full report highlighting remedial actions needed

Please note: access is required to all plug sockets and extension leads. If cables are caught up this may impact on time and incur an extra charge.
