Domestic and commercial PAT Tests and appliance safety testing

Do you need first-class electrical appliance testing in Mayfair or Kensington?

UK PAT are specialists in the field of portable appliance testing. We can provide fast, affordable, and professional service for all domestic and commercial organisations, including offices, factories, schools, hospitality venues, and others.

Electrical safety is of paramount importance and is essential to ensure staff and members of the public are not at risk of harm from electrical equipment. As opposed to an Electrical Installation Condition Report or EICR, which tests the electrical integrity of fixed installations such as sockets, light fittings, and circuit boards, our PAT tests check the appliances that connect to the electrical supply. This includes electric cookers, refrigerators, toasters, kettles, printers, TVs, and so on.

We have over six decades-worth of experience when it comes to dealing with property and compliance. Our appliance testing will check the safety of all electrical appliances to ensure that you comply with health and safety regulations. This includes The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, and The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.

Our tests will ensure that your electrical equipment is free of faults. Our company also offers other compliance services, including Legionella Risk Assessments and energy performance certificates. We come highly recommended – please see our reviews and recommendations on Checkatrade.com.

Do you need legionella inspections or testing in Mayfair or Kensington? UK PAT also provides comprehensive legionella testing. Legionella bacteria are found in natural environments, including lakes and ponds. They can also be found in small amounts in the main water supply, and where there is this risk, it needs to be mitigated and managed.

Legionnaires disease, sometimes called Legionellosis, is a type of pneumonia that can be potentially fatal. Commercial organisations and landlords are obliged to regularly assess their water systems, especially where water has been stagnant for some time. Particular attention needs to be paid to the following:

  • Hold & cold water systems
  • Cooling water systems
  • Spa pools
  • Spray humidifiers, air washers, and wet scrubbers
  • Sprinklers and vehicle wash systems

We can carry out a full range of legionella testing services tailored to your requirements. The assessment covers all pipework, boilers, water tanks, taps, showers and other outlets. Each legionella risk assessment will highlight the risk of exposure and potential dangers and the steps that should be taken to reduce the levels of bacteria. This bacteria is preventable and can be controlled by taking suitable precautions.

Our legionella risk assessments are valid for two years or whenever there is a change of circumstances.
