PAT Testing – (Portable Appliance Test) in Milton Keynes and Buckinghamshire From £0.54p Per Item
PAT testing (portable appliance testing) is the only way to ensure that your electrical devices are not electrically unsafe and a risk to your employees/customers. It is not a legal requirement to have a PAT test, BUT it is a legal requirement to ensure all electrical devices are safe to use. The most accepted way to ensure this is by carrying out a PAT test. You may also find that if someone was to suffer in an accident caused a faulty electrical appliance, you not be insured if you do not have any records of testing.
We only use the latest test equipment and fully trained engineers to ensure our testing is accurate and non-disruptive. Once we have completed the testing, you will be provided with a full list of equipment tested. All items will have a sticker which contains a unique I.D number relating to the report, so you have full traceability.
