Portable Appliance
Testing

Portable electrical appliances are an integral part of many organisations, providing convenience and functionality.

However, regular inspection and testing of these appliances are essential to ensure their safety and compliance with regulations. At Whitestar we offer comprehensive Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) services to help businesses maintain the safety and integrity of their electrical equipment. With our expertise, thorough testing procedures, and commitment to safety, we provide peace of mind knowing that your appliances are safe for use.

What is an Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)?

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) involves the inspection and testing of electrical appliances to ensure they are safe for use. This process helps identify any faults, defects, or potential hazards that could pose a risk to users or property. PAT testing is typically conducted by qualified electricians using specialised testing equipment and techniques.

Our PAT Services

Inspection and Testing

Our team of experienced electricians conducts a thorough inspection and testing of your portable electrical appliances, including items such as computers, printers, kettles, microwaves, and more specialised equipment that can be plugged in. We use state-of-the-art PAT equipment to assess the safety and functionality of each appliance and identify any defects or issues that require attention.

Visual Inspection

We perform a visual inspection of each appliance to check for any visible signs of damage, wear and tear, or misuse. This includes inspecting the appliance casing, power cords, plugs, sockets, switches, and other components.

Electrical Testing

In addition to the visual inspection, we conduct electrical testing to assess the electrical integrity and safety of each appliance. This may include tests such as insulation resistance testing, earth continuity testing, and polarity testing to ensure that the appliance meets safety standards and regulatory requirements.

Documentation and Reporting

Following the inspection and testing, we provide you with a comprehensive report detailing the results of the test. This includes a detailed inventory of all tested appliances, along with a summary of any defects or issues identified, and recommendations for remedial action.
