When it comes to owning your own business, there are many guidelines you must adhere to. But did you know that Electricity Regulations state that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury has to be maintained to make sure it is safe? This is where PAT Testing comes in.
Portable appliance testing (PAT) is the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. In most cases, a visual test can be carried out to see if the electrical device is faulty, but some types of electrical safety defects can’t be detected by visual testing alone. Which is why it’s important to have your devices PAT Tested.
Here at Harvey Electrical Services we offer a PAT testing service, making sure you are covered and have the correct certification for all your electrical equipment. Our team have many years experience and can not only provide you with a testing service but help and advice too!
When it comes to how often you should have a PAT Test carried out, we recommend that the equipment you use more frequently be tested more than equipment that is used once in awhile. Although once a year is a good guideline to follow to make sure all of your electrical equipment is safe and working correctly.
