Portable Appliance Testing

What Is Portable Appliance Testing?

Portable Appliance Testing is an integral part of the health and safety policy in the working environment. Where appliances are supplied, used by the public or employees, tests carried out by a competent person will reveal potential problems with the device which could lead to electrical shocks, or an electrical fire.

Who Should Carry Out The Portable Appliance Testing?

The person or person(s) carrying out the test should be deemed competent.

Basic Terms and conditions:

We would ask that all items that require testing are fully accessible on arrival. Access to plugs is vital, if this is not possible then a “Visual inspection” will be carried out. All items would need to be switched off for testing to be carried out, please be aware our testers are not permitted to switch off the following items for insurance purposes:

Medical Equipment, IT Equipment, Networked equipment and IT servers. Please ensure a suitable member of staff has switched these items off either prior to our arrival or at the time of testing, if the items are still switched on a “Visual Inspection” will be performed.

Damaged plugs and fuses are replaced free of charge, incorrect rated fuses can be replaced with the correct rated fuse for a fee of £1.50 each, some clients prefer to manage this aspect themselves to reduce costs, please inform us of your preference when booking in your test.
