PAT tests are particularly important in buildings used by employees and members of the public, such as schools, hospitals, and office blocks. These tests make sure your employees are safe from faulty electrical appliances.
To make sure an appliance is safe, all aspects of it will be tested including the plug, the lead, and the appliance itself. For your protection, this work will be carried out by an electrician with the skills and knowledge to complete the testing quickly and safely.
Once the PAT testing is complete, you will receive a report detailing everything that was tested and whether it received a pass or fail. All appliances should have a sticker with the inspection date, the next test due, and the inspector’s signature.
Our electricians are happy to provide any help or advice about the report and any remedial work needed.
