Portable Appliance Testing
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is necessary to maintain the continued safe use of a range of portable appliances throughout your property. According to the Health and Safety Executive legislation, employers are required to ensure all electrical equipment is adequately maintained to promote a safer working environment. Additionally, landlords looking to rent out their properties are also obliged to ensure the safety of any electrical equipment supplied to their tenants. The frequency at which these tests should be carried out depends on a variety of factors, including:
- The type of installation.
- The use and operation of the installation.
- The electric frequency of the installation.
- Any maintenance performed on the installation.
To help you ensure your compliance with the relevant British Standards, Red Electrical Ltd can carry out comprehensive PAT service on commercial and domestic properties throughout London and Essex. When we have completed our PAT, we will compile and provide you with a certificate detailing every appliance that was tested, as well as the location of the appliance and the result of the test.
While testing your electrical appliances, each item will be awarded a pass or fail status, as well as an ID number. Where necessary, Red Electrical Ltd will also assist you in rectifying any issues identified during the inspection for your convenience.
Periodic Inspection Reports
A Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) is a test carried out to determine the condition of various electrical elements, such as wiring, installations, and connections within commercial or residential properties. This inspection should be carried out to determine the following:
- If any electrical equipment or circuits are overloaded.
- Whether or not there are any potential shock or fire hazards.
- If any electrical work is faulty or inadequate.
- If there is a lack of bonding or earthing in any electrical work.
At Red Electrical, we take care to test all electrical installations against the highest standards to ensure they function at the safest possible level. Following our inspections, we will also provide you with a thorough report listing any faults and problems that require further investigation.
