PAT Testing

Portable appliance testing (PAT) is the term used to describe the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. Any appliance which needs testing is anything with a plug attached to it. It should also be portable. A Personal Computer for example, has a monitor, power lead, speakers and maybe a multi-socket extension to test. Other examples include Kettles, Irons, Leads, Extension Cables, Treadmills and Printers. Fridges and washing machines are also considered to be portable.

Most electrical safety defects can be found by visual examination but some types of defect can only be found by testing. However, it is essential to understand that visual examination is an essential part of the process because some types of electrical safety defect can't be detected by testing alone.

Whatever your business or trade, Devon Builiding Services can Test, Inspect and undertake any remedial works to certify that your electrical installations are safe for you, your employees, and the general public.
