Don’t let electrical safety void your insurance.

Although PAT Testing is not a legal requirement it is a critical part of your company’s health and safety and should be considered part of a solution to your safety concerns.

If you don’t maintain your electrical appliances properly your insurance provider may not cover your business.

The UK Health and Safety Executive along with insurance companies will expect you to perform PAT testing to ensure that you are compliant with certain regulations including:
• Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974
• The Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989
• The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations of 1998
• The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations of 1999
Not complying with the above mentioned regulations can result in fines up to £5,000 and/or six months imprisonment.

Get your electrical appliances inspected and keep everyone safe and secure from danger.

Here at Greater Manchester PAT Testing we can provide you with labels of items that have been tested and a certificate of testing for you to present to your insurance company if needed.

Note: Portable Appliance Testing (commonly known as PAT or PAT Inspection or PAT Testing) is a process in which electrical appliances are routinely checked for safety. The correct term for the whole process is In-service Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment.
