We offer quality and accurate PAT testing for all local businesses and households to help reduce the risk of electrical faults, fires and circuit shortages.


Portable Appliance Testing, otherwise known as PAT testing, is the process of examining and checking portable electrical equipment. This includes extension cords, power tools and computers to ensure they are safe to use with visual inspections and electrical testing.

Poorly maintained or faulty electrical equipment has an increased risk of causing electric shocks, burns or even starting fires. To help ensure a safe working environment, across all sectors, PAT testing is used to help evaluate the electrical safety of hand-held electrical equipment.

If you are a business owner or landlord, PAT testing is highly recommended to ensure the safety of your employees and tenants. However, at this present time, there is no legal requirement for PAT testing. On the other hand, ensuring that all working conditions and electrical equipment used in a commercial setting are safe to use IS a legal requirement. We also offer EICR inspections for all commercial and rented properties.

However, you may wish to check with your insurance provider how regular PAT testing is required for your business. Power Tools on a construction site may need to be checked more frequently compared to a hair dryer in a hotel room, for example.
