Newcastle – Gateshead – Tyneside – Washington – Sunderland
Providing a North East PAT Testing Service
We provide PAT testing services to all types of workplace throughout Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead, Tyneside, Washington and Sunderland for just 65p per item.
Health and Safety in the UK requires you to maintain safe electrical equipment – the best way to do this is through regular PAT testing; otherwise known as Portable Appliance Testing.
The process involves a thorough visual inspection by a competent PAT tester, plus, when required tests using a PAT machine.
PAT testing should be an important part of your health and safety policy, and should not be ignored – it may even reduce your insurance premiums!
The HSE report that around 25% of all electrical accidents involve Portable appliances which is why regular inspections are so important. The Health and Safety at Work Act requires an employer or business owner to ensure appliances that are used by employees, the public, tenants, students, guests or anyone else, are safe to continue using.
We offer one fixed price for PAT testing all portable appliances including remedial repairs, replacement plugs and fuses, itemised labels and the PAT Testing Certificates which we aim to get to you within 24 hours of the job being completed.
Our PAT testing will help you to comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act, Electricity at Work Act and many others.
During this difficult time we are still operating as normal, and providing an essential health and safety service to our clients. This is strictly in line with government guidance which we will continue to monitor daily.
Our engineers are taking all necessary precautions to ensure their own and your safety.
If you would like your PAT testing carried out whilst your business is closed or operating with reduced staff, and can arrange access for our engineers then please contact us by email from our contact page or call 0191 666 1009.
Our team of experienced, professional engineers are fully competent with enhanced DBS checks, and cover all of Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead, North and South Tyneside, Washington, Sunderland, Cramlington and Blyth, possibly even further afield.
With many years of experience in PAT testing we ensure the service we provide you is of a high standard, completed efficiently, safely and with minimal disruption.

What do our clients say?
“The process to book testing, was very easy, and they could fit in the exact time frame we had. The tester had spare parts and was very professional and efficient, I gave him a quick tour of the building, and the testing was done promptly. Great value, and respectful of covid guidelines. I would highly recommend and we will be using DRA Testing in a years time”.
“As always, an excellent and reliable service. Due to covid19 guidelines we only had certain times available but Richard was more than accommodating and offered an alternative suggestion which meant we were able to get the whole school PAT tested, which we are so grateful for. Thank you!”
