Portable Appliance Testing

Portable Appliance Testing

GreenLight offer Portable Appliance Testing for Landlords, Commercial and Industrial properties and competitive pricing for larger quantities of items.

With many years experience in testing electrical safety we can produce highly detailed reports for any type of property.

Our cloud based backup system eliminates the possibility of losing any data, once the electrical installation certificate is shared by the engineer it is instantly available for download in another location. It also allows multiple engineers to work on large projects where information needs to be shared across site and eliminates the need to carry around any paper copies.

Why do I need to have my appliances tested?

The best way of ensuring that your appliances are safe is to have a PAT test carried out on them. This is a good way for landlords to ensure that they are meeting their legal obligations to maintain high standards of electrical safety in their rented property.

What does it involve?

To establish the safety and suitability of your electrical appliances, we will carry out a visual inspection of the appliance, its plug and lead. For Class I[1] equipment we will also inject test signals into the cable and appliance to ensure their integrity.

Who should do the work?

Electrical work must only be carried out by people who have the necessary knowledge, skill and experience needed to avoid danger to themselves and others.

GreenLight’s Portable Appliance Testers are fully qualified and trained to the highest standards.

What will I receive?

Upon completion of the inspection and testing you will receive a report that details the following as a minimum:

  • An inventory containing each appliance type, name, location and description
  • A full set of test results for each appliance tested
  • A full list of any failed items with an explanation of their failure
  • A visible pass or fail label on each appliance detailing the inspection date, next test due and the inspector’s signature.
