PAT Testing Services Hertfordshire
PAT testing (Portable Appliance Testing) is an examination of all your portable electrical equipment and devices (anything with a plug attached), to ensure that they are safe to use.
Often, safety defects are visual and can be easily spotted. However, faults are generally detected by plugging the device into our specialist PAT testing equipment.
If electrical appliance testing is not carried out, the defect could cause danger to the individual using the equipment, or to the whole fabric of the building.
- Faulty electrical equipment is the cause of 8,000 fires every year
- More than 15% of all domestic fires in England and Wales are caused by electrical faults
Prevent Electrical Accidents at Work
The level of inspection and testing required depends on the nature of the appliance and how likely it is to become faulty. The environment in which an appliance is used can also have an effect on the efficiency of the device. The requirement for a PAT test on a portable appliance is dependent on the guidelines provided by your insurer.
Most insurers will require annual testing of your portable appliances.
