Who Can Do The Testing?

Our City and Guilds trained team of engineers are dedicated to provide a discreet efficient service working outside normal working hours if required to minimize disruption especially in a busy office environment.

What Qualifies as a Portable Appliance?

All equipment used in the work place with a flexible cable and/or plug, examples are:- Computers, microwaves, heaters, fans, lamps, kettles, faxes, photocopiers, printers etc.


Minor faults highlighted during inspection of the appliances can be repaired as we find them and then retested. Un-repairable or dangerous faults will result in the appliance being failed and labelled accordingly.

Reports And Certification

During testing all portable appliances will be labelled and numbered with a safety sticker to enable easy identification in the event of a Health and Safety Inspection. On completion of the testing we will issue a safety certificate and a detailed report identifying each appliance with information on the tests carried out.

We will not be beaten on price or service!
