A Professional Health and Safety check of Electrical Appliances and Wiring within the Home or Workplace

The Health & Safety Executive reports that 25% of all reported electrical accidents involve portable appliances.

PAT testing or portable appliance testing is an important part of any health & safety policy. Electrical safety of all equipment in the workplace falls within the Health and Safety at Work Regulations. Increasingly PAT Testing is becoming an insurance requirement and is called for by Fire Risk Assessments

The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment. This requires a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing

The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances:

  • Where appliances are used by employees.
  • Where the public may use appliances in places such as hospitals, schools, hotels, shops etc.
  • Where appliances are supplied or hired
  • Where appliances are repaired or serviced

The level of inspection and testing required is dependant upon the risk of the appliance becoming faulty, which depends on the type of appliance.

Most customers also have any Microwave Leakage Tests done at the same time as their portable appliances as over time the door seals become less effective and harmful microwaves 'leak' from the oven.

All our Engineers are qualified to the industry recognised City & Guilds or NAPIT 2377 standards and work to the IEE Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment.

Testing is a vital part of protecting your business
