Portable Appliance Testing or PAT Testing is the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to make sure they are safe. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 require that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition and PAT Testing is one of the steps you can take to meet this requirement.
More information on PAT Testing can be found at the HSE website: - http://www.hse.gov.uk/electricity/faq-portable-appliance-testing.htm
Having completed a City and Guilds Level 3 Award in the In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment (PAT) I am deemed to be a competent person and carry out PAT Testing on your electrical appliances. I carry out PAT Testing for small business and offices, voluntary and community groups and landlords. On completion of PAT Testing I provide a full set of reports both in digital and hard copy for your records.
