Expert PAT Testing in Edinburgh

We know that PAT testing is hugely important for our commercial customers to keep them in line with the latest regulations. When renting a property out or running a businesses you have to be certain that every appliance you provide employees or residents with is 100% safe for them to use.

While there are no current legal requirements for PAT testing, the government has implemented regulations relating to the maintenance of electrical appliances. The best way to ensure that these regulations are met is by carrying out a PAT Test.

Peace of Mind PAT Testing

There are many landlords and business owners who are not sure how often their appliances should be tested, this depends on the type of appliances and the environment in which they are used. For example, power tools that are used on building sites will require more frequent testing than a lamp in a hotel room.

Is PAT Testing Compulsory?

By law electrical appliances have to be properly maintained in order to prevent danger to users, however, it is not specified how they should be maintained or how frequently. We recommend that landlords and employers minimise risk as any problems with appliances could put people in danger or cause a fire that will damage property.

A PAT test ensures that the following regulations are met:

  • 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.

If you refuse to have a PAT Test carried out, you can run into a great deal of trouble including fines up to £5000 and imprisonment.
