Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)

Part of: Electrical Testing

Electrical equipment is required to be properly maintained to prevent danger; inspections are necessary and testing may also be required. Our work adheres to all legislation relevant to electrical maintenance.

PTSG Electrical Services is a leading expert in Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) – specialised processes which ensure that electrical appliances comply fully with UK legislation and where necessary, are tested and certified. A full report is provided which lists all assets inspected and tested, their locations and results. This satisfies the requirements of the HSE Memorandum of Guidance (HSR25) for records that should be kept.

Through our fast, efficient and cost-effective portable appliance testing (PAT), PTSG Electrical Services Ltd. gives businesses total peace of mind, knowing they have taken the right steps to ensure equipment is safe for use – both on- and off-site. We can also provide bespoke solutions for varying inspection and testing frequencies and offer a range of labelling to suit clients requirements.

Testing includes:

  • A visual check covering suitability of use, switching, wiring, connections, plug condition etc*
  • Tests to verify earth continuity and insulation resistance
  • Functional check of the equipment
  • Identification of necessary repairs to the equipment

 

The process is recognised by the insurance industry and without up to date risk assessments or test certificates, your insurance could be invalidated.

Note: this is a formal inspection not to be confused with standard user checks that are regularly carried out.
