The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 state that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition.

Portable Appliance Testing or PAT, also known as “in-service inspection & testing of electrical equipment”, is a standardized process where electrical appliances or electronic machines are checked at a regular frequency to ensure they are working up to their full potential. This is also

a check for the safety of the electrical equipment which involves testing the earthing, testing of wires and their insulation, flexibility of the attached cables and all other check points that are deemed necessary for running the appliances.

We, at Strathclyde Domestic Repairs, extend our services to the companies and individuals for Portable Appliance Testing of their electrical equipment.

We make sure that your work environment complies with the UK Health and Safety Work Directives.

Why does your company need a PAT certificate?

PAT (Portable Appliance Testing) must be maintained to prevent any sort of electrical danger. It helps in checking all the safety and health statuses of your appliances. It is carried out every one or two years to maintain the equipment which can potentially cause any damage or injury hazards. PAT is essential to ensure that your appliances are safe to have and use. With PAT, the equipment is more reliable and safe as it meets the legal standards and obligations of high standards of electrical safety especially if it is categorized in rented property.

A PAT certificate will be provided at the end of PAT testing, which has no set expiration date and is dependent on other circumstances. Every 24 months, portable equipment in hotels, offices, and shops should be retested. Every 48 months, Class 1 equipment, such as computers and stationary equipment, should have their certificates renewed.

How much does PAT cost and is it worth it?

PAT testing cost is estimated based on the number of appliances to be checked and tested. The number of electrical equipment in your company that require testing, can alter the price. However, the more the items, the lesser cost is to be paid per item.
