PAT Testing

Professional Services / PAT Testing

At FlatWorldWorks, all of our testers have completed the necessary training to allow them to carry out PAT testing safely and to the very highest standard. Once the PAT testing is complete, you will receive a report detailing all the appliances that were tested, whether they have passed or failed and an explanation as to why. You will also be provided with a pass or fail label for the appliance that displays the inspection date, when the next test is next due and the inspector’s signature.

Flatworldworks are able to ensure that your organisation meet the legal responsibilities in ensuring electrical equipment is maintained in order to prevent danger.

We can book your PAT testing for your domestic or commercial property with our technicians for a time that suits you. Accidentally missed your testing anniversary? - No problem! We can book you in as an urgent request.

The law simply requires employers to ensure electrical equipment is maintained in order to prevent danger. Inspecting electrical appliances as an employer and a landlord it is your duty to be vigilant. One way to do this is to get your appliances tested regularly within your property.

About PAT Testing

  • Cuts or abrasions to cable coverings
  • Cracked casing or bent pins
  • Loose parts and screws
  • Burn marks
  • The outer covering of the cable not being gripped where it enters the plug or equipment

PAT guidelines were put into effect to ensure that all companies conform to the Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974, Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989, Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations of 1998 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations of 1999.

Based on the situation, the punishment for not addressing the legal requirements on electrical equipment well-being or safety, it could be two years’ imprisonment along with a limitless financial penalty.

    PAT testing is not, in itself, a legal obligation. However, current UK legislation states that businesses must maintain electrical equipment in a safe condition. They also have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of employees and the public. Because PAT testing is one of the most effective ways to do this, particularly for high risk or large, complex environments, it has become a standard way of meeting this legal obligation. If you would like to read the specific guidance concerning electrical equipment at work, you can find this in a number of pieces of legislation:
  • The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974
  • The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
  • The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998
  • The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999
