Portable Appliance Testing is essentially an examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. Whilst some electrical safety issues will be found by visual examinations, some will only be discovered through testing.
Businesses, employers, institutions and landlords all have a statutory responsibility to ensure that any portable appliances on their premise are safe for use. If PAT Testing doesn’t occur and someone is injured the company can be heavily penalised for it. Regular PAT testing plays an essential part in documenting your duty of care and would be highly recommended to avoid any complications or problems arising.
The frequency depends upon the type of equipment and the environment of operations. The law simply requires employers to ensure electrical equipment is maintained in order to prevent danger – it doesn’t state what needs to be done or how often.
At Bright Spark, we can provide a PAT service to all and would also recommend it; give us a call today on 01892 531 728 or fill out an enquiry form on the website to discuss your requirements.
I live an a very old house with many different electrical systems. As a condition of my household insurance I had to have the house electrics upgrade to a modern standard. I engaged Bright Spark for the complex project. My experience of their service was that they are a highly professional company who completed the work on time and on budget. However, and just as importantly, the work was carried out with consideration and care, sadly a rare occurrence in today's society. I have no hesitation in recommending Bright Spark to my friends.
We are very pleased with the high standard of the recent work carried out by Bright Spark and would happily recommend the service. We were particularly impressed by the quick response to our online enquiry and the email follow up by Karen after the job had been completed. We will definitely use her for any electrical job in the future.
This company was recommended by some people on the Streetlife website. I wanted new lights installed in my kitchen, dining room and conservatory. Karen got back to me within minutes of my email and both Ian and Robin proved to be efficient, friendly and tidy workmen. I will be keeping their business card handy for future use.
Karen recently came to our place on a Sunday afternoon when our kitchen suddenly lost all power. She found and fixed the problem with the breaker very quickly, and also checked the others. She did a great job and we were very pleased to get it fixed so quickly! I recommend her to friends, and will definitely call her the next time we need an electrician.
I was very pleased with the prompt and efficient service. The electrician phoned in advance to confirm his time of arrival and was friendly and polite.
