We carry out Portable Appliance Testing across the North East; we will come to you, wherever you are in Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Co. Durham or North Yorkshire to complete your PAT Testing.
Ensuring electrical appliances in a workplace are safe, is crucial – a faulty appliance can lead to a fire or give someone an electric shock, worse still it can kill!
Safety in the workplace is a priority for every business, to ensure their staff and other users are safe – a safe working environment is a happy environment.
The current regulations require all portable appliances in the workplace continue to meet strict safety standards – there should be no compromise on this – Portable Appliance Testing conducted by us at regular intervals will help to ensure you remain compliant.
Regular inspections and tests of portable electrical equipment will help you maintain safe standards in your equipment, as portable appliance testing flags up faults which an engineer can fix, it may find appliances that have been recalled to the manufacturer and it will find and remove dangerous equipment.
Whats more, our PAT engineer will be able to advise you on improving safety in your workplace by conducting on-site risk assessments and showing you where equipment safety can be improved, but also by advising you of the best course of action for interval periods until the next phase of inspections and or testing.
DRA Electricals, based in Newcastle upon Tyne is an independent Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) company. PAT Testing is a specialised process which should only be carried out by suitably qualified and skilled engineers who have the experience to reassure you that your equipment is being inspected correctly, so you comply fully with UK Health and Safety at Work directives.
DRA Electricals give their clients peace of mind that they are doing the right thing to ensure that portable electrical equipment they provide for use in the workplace is safe to be used; wherever it is used.
The process of portable appliance testing is recognised by the insurance industry as a risk reducer which can help to reduce premiums and does help in the event of an insurance claim.
We will discuss with you what your needs are, we will assess the risks within your workplace to determine appropriate intervals between first and next phases of inspections and testing.
