Saffron Walden PAT Testing are specialists in Portable Appliance Testing. One of the company's main goals is to supply your company or organisation with a total business solution to comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations.

All Employers and Landlords/Letting agents are responsible by law for preventing any harm coming to their employees, customers and tenants when using equipment provided for their use.

If your working environment or property has any appliances with a mains voltage plug attached, for example:

Computers, Monitors, Printers, Kettles, Microwaves, Fridges, Vacuum Cleaners, Cash Tills, etc.

You will have a duty to comply with all the necessary regulations. Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is the best way you can fulfil this obligation. Failure to implement a programme of Portable Appliance Testing can also have insurance implications.

Additionally 110 volt site equipment needs to be checked on an ongoing basis. Tools of this nature are one of the high risk categories due to the arduous environment in which they are used.

Electricity can kill! Each year about 1000 accidents at work involving electric shock or burns are reported to the Health and Safety Executive. About 30 of these are fatal.

Faulty electrical appliances and leads are the main cause of accidental fires in commercial buildings, representing over a quarter of all such fires.

Make sure your appliances are safe! Make sure they are TESTED!
