Keeping our customers safe with our expert PAT Testing service

While making sure your electrical installations are kept in top working order, don’t neglect your portable appliances.

Why? – It’s simple. Your portable appliances have just as much power to be safety hazards to you and your people.

 

According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 requires that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition. While Portable Appliance Testing is not a legal requirement, it is highly recommended to maintain the safety of both your staff and visitors.

 

To help keep our customers and their portable appliances safe, our engineers are equipped with the very best Apollo testers, which can store up to 50,000 assets, 2,000 visual inspection images and rapidly transfer data, making the entire process thorough and efficient. We go the extra mile for our customers, marking each appliance with a pass or fail label (in accordance with the 5th Edition Code of Practice), which means you’ll always know which appliance needs further inspections.

How we carry out Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)

  1. Examination: Prior to testing, our engineer will conduct a visual examination of the appliance in question, checking the following:
    • Plug casings, including cover removal
    • Correct fuse rating and wiring
    • Terminals and connections
    • Bare wires
    • Indications of overheating, such as discolouration. We will then test the appliance, performing an earth continuity, insulation resistance, and functional test to highlight any anomalies.
  2. Results: The appliance will then be labelled with a pass or fail sticker as appropriate, with the result reflected in your final report.At BES Group, we’re here as your trusted advisor to keep you, and your people, safe. This means that our engineers will never leave a potentially dangerous electrical appliance on location without informing the Site Contact or appropriate person so that remedial action can be carried out.
