Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)

Portable Appliance Testing or PAT testing is the inspection of any portable electrical equipment. The engineer will carry out a visual inspection and electrical tests using the latest electrical equipment of the market. Appliances which have passed the tests are guaranteed to be safe to use until next test date, which will be usually up to twelve months, but it can be shorter depending on the environment.

Portable appliance testing (pat)

According to the Health & Safety at Work Act, places in where appliances are used by employees or the public, or they’re hired, supplied, serviced or repaired, they must be tested to make sure that they’re safe for use. Besides, some councils require PAT testing of furnished properties before letting to tenants, similar to insurance companies, which will give a discount if equipment on the premises is PAT tested.

At Electrician London, our aim is to make this process easier. In order to accomplish this, we provide portable appliance testing to businesses and organisations in London. Our PAT tests include a fast service in the same day, and they’re competitively priced depending on how many appliances are going to be tested. In addition, our electricians are registered with the qualification, so you can expect a high quality and reliable work.
