The PAT testing is required to meet strict safety regulations in the workplace and employers and landlords should arrange for all their portable electronic devices and equipment to be tested periodically.
By carrying out regular inspections you are enabling us to pre-empt any damage or areas for concern which could potentially lead to endangering lives or damage to the workplace. The importance of regular portable appliance testing (PAT) cannot be understated. For your PAT Testing service in Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire please contact us here.
