What is PAT testing?

Untitled design.png

Portable Appliance Testing or PAT Testing is the process of checking electrical appliances for safety through a series of visual inspections and electronic tests. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (EAWR) places certain requirements on employers, designed to manage risks that can arise from the use of electronic appliances. The best way of ensuring that your appliances are safe is to have a PAT test carried out on them. This is often required by landlords and insurance companies to ensure that businesses are meeting their legal obligations to maintain high standards of electrical safety.

Performance and immersive venues operate differently from conventional work environments. For example, the proper placement of props is crucial, and any modifications made for testing purposes must be reversed before audience engagement.

Drawing upon my expertise and adaptability, I am equipped to handle the unique challenges of testing in a performance venue and am willing to accommodate your operational hours.

Wha you need to know

What you need to know

The items tested are all electronic items, cables and extension leads that plug into a normal 240V wall socket.

110V  workshop equipment is also testable upon negotiation.

This is not a repair service, minor damage to plug sockets and fuses are included in the service but anything beyond this will need the skill of a qualified electrition.

Any appliance that is wired directly into the building and has no plug (fixed appliances) cannot be PAT tested and must be tested or serviced by an electrician.



Our pricing structure is designed to be both affordable and fair. For your convenience, we offer a flat rate of £50 for the testing of up to 30 items. For any additional items, we charge a fee of just £2 per item.
