Why all businesses in Telford should PAT test

As an employer you must keep your customers and employees safe by ensuring your electrical equipment is regularly tested and maintained.

Whilst there is no actual law to PAT test, the only way to comply with British parliamentary legislation is through the testing and recording of results. PAT Testing is good evidence that you have performed “due diligence” in the conduct of your duties.

So what needs to be checked?  Wiring Works in Telford are NIC EIC approved electricians and provide commercial electrical services including PAT Testing and they tell us that any appliance with a plug that is intended to be connected to a wall socket or generator needs testing e.g.

  • Desk Lamps
  • Computers
  • Printers
  • Photocopiers
  • Vending Machines
  • Electric tools
  • Fax machine
  • Fridge
  • Kettles
  • Toasters
  • Hairdryers
  • Radio/CD player/Television
  • And much more!

If you don’t comply and refuse to have your appliances properly tested, it can lead to fine or even imprisonment.

If you would like more information on PAT Testing, talk to a member of the team at Wiring Works today on 01952 427859.
