P.A.T & F.A.T Testing

Joelec Ltd provide commercial and industrial customers with PAT (Portable Appliance Testing) and FAT (Fixed Appliance Testing) services. Although not a legal requirement, PAT and FAT testing is the cheapest and most convenient way to ensure your business complies with the legal requirements surrounding electrical safety. 

The main requirements for electrical safety are as follows:

  • Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. This legislation places legal implications on employers (including the self employed) to ensure the safety of electrical devices in the workplace. The purpose of the Regulations is to require precautions to be taken against the risk of death or personal injury from electricity in work activities. The best way to ensure compliance is to ensure that all portable equipment is inspected and tested regularly to ensure that it is safe for use.

  • The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. This legislation is the primary piece of legislation covering occupational health and safety in Great Britain. It is subdivided into categories and covers electrical safety. It states "It shall be the duty of every employer to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees."

We are aware that there are many companies offering PAT testing, however we are also aware that a number of these do not completely test your appliances, some do not issue certification afterwards leaving you with no proof of the tests, and some simply leave some dangerous situations unchecked (such as paper sleeves left on plugs). We advise that you check the competency of the company you choose for your PAT and FAT testing. Joelec Ltd are registered with and overseen by the National Association of Professional Inspectors and Testers (NAPIT) for PAT and FAT testing, giving you peace of mind that we continuously meet (and exceed) national standards.
