Why choose us? _
Portable Appliance Testing (or PAT to use the popular acronym) ensures that electrical appliances remain safe to use. Over time with general wear and tear, faults can develop, this poses a risk of electric shock or fire.
PAT testing would find this kind of fault so that the appliance can be repaired or removed. Whilst PAT testing in itself is not a legal requirement, it is the most effective way to comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 4(2) that states ‘as may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger’. Similarly, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 places a duty of care upon employers and employees to ensure the safety of all persons using work premises.
PAT testing is the most effective way to show you are meeting your legal obligations and that you have a maintenance regime in place. Often, insurance companies will require businesses to conduct annual PAT testing which, if not completed, may void an insurance claim. Many insurance companies will offer a discount if PAT testing has been completed.
LMTS PAT Testing uses high-end equipment to conduct electrical testing which is calibrated regularly to ensure the results remain accurate. We provide an honest and reliable service where all appliances are thoroughly checked, regardless of how long that takes. We conduct our testing strictly in line with the ‘Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment’ and will NEVER simply label an appliance without a thorough visual and electrical test. We take your safety and that of your employees, customers, and property very seriously.
We work in a wide array of environments, each with unique challenges, so we do not claim to complete 300+ tests per day. Our approach is simple to work efficiently, minimise disruption, and complete every task thoroughly.
We pride ourselves on providing a high-quality service, making sure each item is visually and machine tested. All customers are provided with a detailed equipment register, as well as any applicable forms required for
In-Service Inspection and Testing by the IET Code of Practice.
