Why PAT test?


PAT testing helps businesses conform to the legal requirements of the Electricity at Work Regulations (EWR) and The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.

All electrical equipment in the workplace must be actively maintained to prevent danger and to ensure it is in good repair and efficient working order. The legislation places a duty of care on both employers and employees (including the self-employed) to ensure the safety of everyone in the workplace. PAT testing is the most reliable means by which you can ensure you meet your legal requirements.

Insurance companies assume when giving cover that businesses are compliant with all the necessary regulations. A company that suffers an incident of electrocution or fire as a result of a failure to maintain equipment to the required standard could find that their insurance company may reject their claim. The company may also be prosecuted under Health & Safety legislation.
