Portable Appliance Testing

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Inspection or PAT Testing) is the name of a process by which electrical appliances are routinely checked for safety.

Health and safety regulations require that electrical appliances are safe and maintained to prevent harm to workers and users. Safe electrical appliances avoid legal claims and higher insurance policies. Many equipment manufacturers recommend testing at regular intervals to ensure continual safety.

Gortnaskea Electrics use specially developed testing equipment for PAT inspections which is based on testing equipment used by manufacturers to ensure compliance with the British Standard Code of Practice and European product standards.
