Portable appliance testing is one of the most commonly required forms of electrical testing in Stoke on Trent as absolutely every business has some sort of ‘portable appliance’. This includes computers, printers, laptops, phone chargers and telephones – essentially anything that plugs into or hooks up to mains electricity. PAT testing ensures that the wiring in these devices is safe, that the voltage is correct, and that the device is safe for use by employees. PAT testing is required as a minimum every 3 years, but some appliances may require more frequent testing.
Fixed Wiring Testing
