Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use.
Portable Appliance Testing helps to find any defect in electrical devices. There are different classifications of electrical equipment. A portable appliance is defined in the management standard and includes any electrical equipment your employees use at work, whether it is their own or supplied by offices, hotels, shops and residential care. Testing for electrical safety defects is essential in preventing electrical shock, fires and burns.
Safety at work should always be paramount with the highest standard of safety maintained. Electrical equipment can cause serious bodily harm including death.
The B38 Group Portable Appliance Testing team manages a complete service of the testing, labelling and certification for portable appliances in the workplace.
With an overall aim to provide a service that works for each environment rather than an ‘off the shelf’ design, B38 Groups PAT team manage the testing process, minimising disruption where possible, ensuring your portable appliances are safe and working effectively.
The plug will be checked for signs of damage, heating or crack. Ensuring it is correctly fitted and connections are tight. The fuse will be checked, as will the cable anchorage.
Our PAT engineers are professionally trained in line with HSE guidance and the new guidelines of the 4th Edition of the IET Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment.
PAT quotes are provided to ensure our customers receive the best value service that incorporates all their requirements as opposed to an ‘off the shelf’ price.
