We specialise in Portable Appliance Testing, a mandatory Health and Safety Regulation governed by a Code of Practice issued by the Institute of Electrical Engineers.
Our Engineers will check for signs of damage to the appliance and its supply cord (IEC Lead) and then test the functionality of any switches before checking that the fuse within the plug top is correctly rated for the safe disconnection of the appliance. After this process, the appliance is energised by a test machine which uses a sequence of checks to establish the integrity of the live, neutral and earth wires. The machine, depending on its findings, will establish a “pass” or “fail” status for the appliance, and the Engineer will label the equipment accordingly.
We are able to offer Microwave Leakage testing upon request.
The legislation and guidance governing PAT is quite clear in most cases about how to protect your people and property and why, however EasyPat does not assume, as others do, that everybody has read the Electricity at Work Act 1989 or the British Standard that governs electrical safety. The fact is that common sense tells us that electricity is dangerous and any equipment using or producing it should be well maintained, EasyPat negate the need for our customers to worry about the legislative requirements by managing their electrical safety requirements on their behalf.
