What is PAT testing?

Portable appliance testing (commonly known as “PAT”, “PAT Inspection” or as “PAT Testing”) is the name of a process in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, New Zealand and Australia by which electrical appliances are routinely checked for safety.

Why do I need to get all of my electrical applicance tested?

Entrusting Greater Manchester PAT Testing with your electrical safety needs also protects you from unwanted issues with insurance companies. If an accident happens in your workplace or property, and your electrics haven’t been PAT Tested, insurers could reject your claim outright or could delay your claim and then pay out a minimal sum.

When you let Greater Manchester PAT Testing take care of your PAT testing you will be given the relevant certificates. Insurers will therefore look more favorably on any claim you might have to make. You’re also much less likely to suffer a workplace accident. It really is win-win situation!

Everyone within the business responsible for the safe use of electrical equipment (e.g. contractors, managers of electrical/electronic laboratories, office managers, maintenance supervisors), are each regarded by the EAWR as duty holders. This means that they should operate a routine safety testing programme for all equipment within their control and at a time based on the principles of risk assessment.
