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.
The two guys from Bright Sparks arrived promptly as arranged. Took their outdoor boots off before making their way to the job - a nice touch . Efficient, pleasant; I could not have asked for more. When the invoice arrived I was also pleasantly surprised. Overall a good experience 10/10
We were very pleased with the recent electrical work which was carried out in a professional manner by your electrician and will certainly use your company again when future needs arise. Also I would be happy to recommend your services to any of our friends.
I had a number of light fittings that weren't working and, on a recommendation from a friend, called Bright Spark. Karen called in to evaluate and price the work the same day and sent one of her colleagues, Peter, to carry it out before the end of the week. It was a very impressive response and the work was done to an excellent standard. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bright Spark and it's reassuring to know such a reliable firm exists the next time I need an electrician.
We have been very impressed by Bright Spark Electrical Services. Karen Smith visited us to discuss our requirements and gave advice which cut our costs. The work was carried quickly and on time with excellent results. The areas affected were clean and tidy when the work was completed. We had a slight problem with a unit but it was dealt with as soon as it was reported. I have no hesitation in recommending this company and will definitely contact them again for any further electrical problems.
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
