Testing Procedures...

Portable appliance testing includes a thorough visual inspection of the appliance to check for:

Damage to the flex
Damaged to the plug and casing (overheating, burn marks, discolouration)
An incorrectly wired plug
An incorrectly rated fuse

A series of tests are then performed. Depending on the class of equipment, they may include:

Earth continuity testing
Insulation resistance
Flex polarity test
Earth leakage test
Operational test

Our testers follow a standardised testing procedure, designed to thoroughly test the safety of all your appliances. Our procedure wholly conforms to the code of practice laid out by the Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) - the standards body responsible for PAT testing.

As all appliances need to be unplugged for testing, testing can be carried out outside of normal working hours or on a weekend ensuring there is no effect on staff productivity.

Appliances are discreetly labelled with the result of the test (pass or fail). Any remedial action that can be taken during testing (repairing plugs/fuses etc) will be carried out at that time at no extra cost. More complex faults or damage are reported to the business manager.

As a final assurance for the quality of our testing, all contracts are underwritten with full public liability insurance, allowing you to concentrate on your business objectives safe in the knowledge that your working environment is in good condition.
