PAT Testing for all industries and sectors

PAT Testing

Portable appliance testing, also known as PAT test or Tag and Test is one of the many electrical services that our professional, skilled electricians can carry out. Our PAT testing is compliant with IEE’s code of practice and meets HSE guidelines.

What is Classed as a Portable Appliance?
A portable appliance is an electrical appliance that is not part of a fixed installation and can be plugged in and moved.

Why is a PAT Test Needed?
A PAT test will check that portable appliances are safe, helping you to ensure that your organisation meets health and safety requirements, including The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations and The Electricity at Work Regulations. The use of untested appliances may also invalidate your insurance.

What does a PAT Test Involve? 
The engineer will first perform a visual inspection of the appliance to ensure that it is in good working order, free from damage, has not been tampered with in any way and has the correct fuse fitted.

Following the visual inspection, the engineer will perform a safety test which will include:
• Earth Continuity Testing
• Insulation Resistance Testing
• Protective Conductor/ Touch Current Testing

Finally, the engineer will perform a functionality check, powering up the appliance to ensure that it is working correctly. Following these checks, the engineer will either pass or fail the appliance and label it accordingly.
