PAT – PORTABLE APPLIANCE TESTING
EMS Portable Appliance and EICR Testing Newbury Basingstoke High Wycombe : providing electrical solutions across the West Midlands.
Portable Appliance Testing, or PAT, is a safety procedure that involves a series of inspections and electrical tests to ensure the appliances within a property meet the legal obligations to ensure a high standard of electrical safety.
PAT tests are particularly important in buildings used by employees and members of the public, such as schools, hospitals and office blocks.
To make sure an appliance is safe, all aspects of it will be tested including the plug, the lead and the appliance itself. The 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 inspection date, 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.
