PAT Testing

PAT testing or ‘Portable Appliance Testing’

Under the “Health and Safety at Work Act 1974”, “The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999” and the “Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998” there is a requirement to ensure that electrical equipment used in the workplace is safe to use.

PAT Testing is particularly important for the following where you might have electrical equipment in general use:

  • shops
  • offices
  • factories
  • schools/ colleges
  • voluntary organisations
  • building companies who supply staff tools

One way to comply is to ensure all electrical equipment used at work (by employees, customers, employers) is checked for electrical safety and this check is known as PAT Testing.

I offer fixed price rates for PAT testing for small and medium sized businesses and organisations:

  • £2.00 (no VAT) an item or
  • £20 (no VAT) an hour

whichever rate is cheaper for you at the end of the job!

All PAT testing jobs are completed with a certificate of test results and green ‘PASS’ labels on all passing appliances. Replacement plugs, fuses, flexes and any other materials are charged extra at cost where relevant. Most electrical appliances will require an annual check but not all. For example IT equipment less than 5 years old may not require testing… 

All PAT testing is undertaken in line with the “IEE code of practice for in-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment”.

I will even contact you each year to remind you when your PAT testing is due. If you are interested or would like more information please get in touch.
