When carrying out Portable Appliance Testing leighpattesters.co.uk will perform the following standard series of tests on each appliance where applicable:

  • Full visual inspection
  • Insulation resistance test

  • Earth leakage current test
  • Functional test to ensure correct and safe operation of the appliance

All items with a plug is tested using calibrated test equipment.A full report and certification are produced for your files showing the results of the individual tests.

All tested items are labeled with an electrical safety pass sticker showing date of test, an unique item number and date of next test. This will ensure that the item can be tracked and provides a clear indication of its pass / fail status.

Failed items (items deemed dangerous - i.e., electric shock or fire hazards) are removed from use, labeled and any necessary action required is discussed with the site manager for the Health & Safety of users.
