What is PAT testing?
PAT testing is the examination of an electrical appliance to ensure it is safe to use.
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 require that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition, and The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances:
- Where appliances are used by employees.
- Where the public may use appliances in establishments such as hospitals, schools, colleges, hotels, shops etc..
- Where appliances are supplied or hired.
- Where appliances are repaired.
The level of inspection and testing required is dependent upon the risk of the appliance becoming faulty, which in turn is dependent upon the type of appliance, the nature of its use and the environment in which it is used.
What Our Customers Say
This is to recommend Marvel Plumbing for the fantastic job they did fitting in a new shower for us.
The job was done fast and efficiently and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who needs plumbing or central heating work done.
Every detail is handled meticulously from quote through to the finish so you always know what is going on.
Many thanks to Allen and his team.
I would like to thank Marvel for coming round to service our household boiler. The team was punctual, professional and got on with the servicing the boiler with the minimum of fuss. I was happy to be told that everything was in good order and that there was no need for expensive repairs and that when I turn the central heating on next winter all should be in working order.
