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 needed a job done really 'sooner rather than later' and at a weekend too! Karen came out, assessed what needed to be done and set to work straight away. Job done, cleared up and on her way within the hour! Not often you get that service! Certainly will keep her number on my mobile and recommend to anyone who needs an electrical job done!
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.
Our timer on our central heating went and my husband was miles away at work,it was early evening when I phoned karen, but straight away she told me not to worry,to send a photo of the timer and she'd sort it out,and she did, an electrician came out with a new timer fitted it and was gone, brilliant service from start to finish, will definitely use them again and would highly recommend them
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.
I have always found Karen and her team at Bright Spark to be friendly, professional and reliable. Their quotes have been reasonably priced and provide a thorough breakdown of costs for replacements parts and labour. I highly recommend them.
