Portable Appliance Testing

Portable Appliance Testing literally involves testing any movable electrical appliance. In an office, this typically includes computers, printers, telephones, vending machines and kitchen equipment, and in large factories, manufacturing plants or hotels, this can involve thousands of individual pieces of equipment and machinery.

PAT testing ensures the safety of your employees and visitors. This type of testing is not mandatory by law but it does ensure that you are compliant with Health and Safety regulations ( read more about your legal responsibilities).
