Why PAT Test?
Should I Consider PAT Testing?
Neglecting faulty equipment can result in damage to property, loss of income, injury or even death. This in turn can lead to heavy fines by the courts for breaching your legal statutory responsibilities. It is a statutory requirement that your electrical equipment is safe for use by your employees and members of the public.
In the more severe instances of injury or death, you could be liable for serious legal consequences, and your insurance claims could be invalidated, leaving you financially unprotected.
Many insurance companies require the insured to comply with all current regulations. This includes the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, which state that "As may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as reasonably practicable, such danger". Legal Requirements
PAT testing is the accepted method of performing appropriate, rigorous testing to ensure your electrical equipment is safe and fit for purpose.
All businesses regardless of the services or goods they provide need to maintain their electrical appliances, including both those permanently connected and those connected via plug and socket outlet. How We Pat Test
PAT testing is a recognized method of proving your compliance with the statutory requirements, for both legal channels and most insurance companies. By PAT testing you are taking reasonable action to prevent damage and injury caused by faulty equipment.
