Why should we carry out PAT testing?


PAT testing can help you to comply with the following regulations:

Health and Safety at Work Act 1974

Electricity At Work Act 1989

Provisions & Use Of Work Equipment Regulations 1998

Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 2003


Is the testing disruptive?


As each appliance to be tested has to be disconnected from the mains supply there

will always be a degree of disruption, however we try to keep this to a minimum.

As an alternative we can also carry out an out of hours service.
