Portable Appliance Testing

Although Regular Portable Appliance testing (PAT testing) is not strictly regulated by UK law, all electrical systems should be maintained to prevent danger. This is enforced under regulations such as 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 and The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations of 1999. As portable appliance systems are responsible for causing almost a quarter of all reported electrical accidents, it’s crucial to make sure they’re in great condition. UK law dictates employers must provide a safe space for employees and customers, so any business in which portable appliances are used, repaired, serviced, supplied or hired, must ensure routine PAT testing. At RK electrics, we believe workplace safety should be of the utmost importance, and this can only be achieved by professional maintenance of electrical systems, particularly portable appliances. It’s a good idea to undertake annual PAT testing within your business. We offer well-trained and experienced electrical specialists, as well as exceptional customer service where we tailor our times around the needs of the customer. Customer satisfaction comes from the assurance of safety in the workplace, and the knowledge you have experienced electricians providing regular testing of portable appliances.
