PAT testing Cumbria is a thorough and rigorous procedure of physical inspection and tests which are applied to all electrical portable and transportable equipment to certify their safety and thereby help to prevent fire or electrocution.
PAT testing Cumbria will keep your organisation or company up to date with your insurer’s requirements and with the statutory regulations under the Health & Safety at Work Act (HASAWA), the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) and the Electricity at Work Regulations (EAWR’s).
We ensure each appliance is correctly tested to meet the requirements of the IEE code of practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment (PAT testing). We use the latest Seaward PAT testing equipment and software and are able to test all appliances in your company or business.
Once complete, a PAT Testing Cumbria Electrical Appliances Certificate will be issued, each appliance will be labelled ‘tested’ and a detailed log of all appliances tested will be held on record. We will contact you when the annual test is due, so that you have no need to remember to contact keep your testing up to date.

If an accident were to occur due to a faulty unmaintained appliance there is the risk of a hefty fine or imprisonment, unless you can prove that you have undergone steps to ensure its safety. Obtaining a PAT testing certificate is the best way to do this.

A landlord has obligations to all tenants to ensuring electrical items are tested before a tenant moves in. They must also carry out regular maintenance of all appliances to ensure the safety of the tenant. PAT testing is the best way to ensure this.
Due to the high risk environment on a construction sites or in a factory all electrical items should undergo PAT testing more often than those in an office environment.
Schools and PAT testing
It is imperative that in an environment where there are children electrical safety is maintained. If you ensure that all electrical items are PAT tested by a qualified engineer at least one per annum then you are ensuring the safety of everyone.
