Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)

Portable Appliance Testing  (PAT)

For affordable, sensible Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) for business, call in the experts at David Blundell Electrical.

With so much information available about PAT, it is easy to get confused about what has to be done, and how often. Our skilled electricians know exactly what needs to be done, and will only ever carry out necessary testing to ensure appliances are safe, so you are not putting you or your staff at risk.

The PAT guidelines are complex, but as a summary:

If you have any piece of electrical equipment in the workplace that is moved around on regular basis, you need to have it tested and make sure it is safe for use. This includes items such as:

  • Power tools
  • Kettles
  • Extension leads
  • Vacuum cleaners

Each item tested has to be labelled, and a certificate has to be issued to provide you with the evidence you need to show you are complying with the law.
