Yorkshire Has Never Had a Better PAT Testing Team!

Here at UKSM, we specialise in providing the full range of electrical and fire safety services, from fire alarm servicing to PAT testing. When it comes to PAT testing, it’s important that you pick a trained, licensed, competent individual to complete the inspection. That’s because electrical appliances and equipment can be very dangerous if not properly tested and cleared.

A person could be electrocuted while using the equipment, or an appliance might catch fire, causing widespread damage to or even the complete destruction of the building.

Our Yorkshire team is highly knowledgeable when it comes to PAT testing. We’ll inspect your electrical appliances and equipment and carry out the full series of tests. Once concluded, your electrical equipment will be working correctly and safe to use, and your insurance premiums may even be lower. In fact, many insurance companies offer lower premiums as an incentive for regular PAT testing.


What Actually Happens During a PAT Test?

A PAT test is incredibly straightforward, and there are no special requirements or arrangements that must be made beforehand. One of our trained electricians will arrive and proceed to carry out a visual inspection of all your electrical devices. This inspection is then followed up by a series of tests that are designed to expose faults and gauge whether each device is safe to use.

As an employer, landlord, or self-employed individual, you are obligated to ensure your electrical devices are working safely. So, PAT testing is, in effect, a mandatory requirement. Our electricians will look at factors such as:

Insulation Resistance
Earth Continuity
Lead Polarity
And they’ll determine if any of these or other factors are showing abnormalities that could point to a defect or sign of damage. PAT tests are quick and cost-effective, saving you money on costly repairs and replacements and even helping to lower your insurance premiums by serving as a risk assessment aid.

What Exactly Does a PAT Test Mean in Practice?

So, what is PAT testing? PAT (Portable Appliance Testing) testing is a specialised process whereby portable electrical appliances and equipment are tested to determine if they’re faulty or not. Any piece of equipment that connects to a power source using a flexible cable or wire qualifies as a portable appliance and will need to be inspected.

This includes anything from a kettle to a vending machine. Electrical devices like power drills or flashlights don’t need to be inspected. However, the charging docks or cables they connect to the power supply with will need to be checked.

A PAT, Yorkshire customers, involves an engineer inspecting each device, looking for a range of issues, such as earth continuity, insulation resistance, and lead polarity.

Why is a PAT Test Important?

PAT testing is an important task that should not be overlooked. As stated previously, you, as an employer, landlord, or self-employed individual, are responsible for ensuring your electrical devices are safe to use. Therefore, it’s vital to have PAT testing carried out regularly.

There are even government regulations in effect, which are designed to protect people and businesses. Such regulations are overseen by the UK Health and Safety Executive, who, along with insurance companies, require that PAT testing is carried out to ensure all laws and regulations are complied with.

These include:

Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974
The Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations of 1998
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations of 1999
Any portable electrical devices MUST be tested in accordance with the law if they are utilised in anything other than a non-domestic setting. Homeowners aren’t required to have their devices tested if they are solely for personal use.

Furthermore, PAT testing is important because, as well as keeping people safe, it keeps your costs down. It can highlight damaged devices, preventing further damage from occurring that could lead to costly repairs or replacements. And regular tests keep your insurance premiums low.

Costs Connected to PAT Testing

As you’d expect, the cost of PAT testing will vary depending on the number of electrical devices that need testing. What you might not expect is that the job becomes cheaper as the number of devices increases. In short, it pays to have all the devices tested rather than one or two.

At UKSM, we’re always transparent about our costs, and we remain committed to delivering affordability, so there’s no financial excuse to put off PAT testing. Get in touch today to get started with a FREE, no-obligation quotation.

How often should PAT testing be carried out?

How often should PAT testing be carried out? depends on several factors, including the equipment type, where it’s being used, and the manufacturer’s recommendations. Typically, PAT testing is completed every two to four years in low-risk environments, but high-risk site owners might want to have this testing completed more often. The team at UK Safety Management can provide you with expert advice if you’re wondering how often you should be having PAT testing carried out on your electrical appliances.

Spotting Counterfeit Goods with PAT Testing

In some cases, people end up with counterfeit electronic appliances that can significantly diminish health and safety. It’s essential to find out whether you are dealing with authentic products, which is something that can be determined through PAT testing. Spotting counterfeit goods with PAT testing is a practice at which we at UK Safety Management excel.
