Safety is something we should not take for granted. We are introducing more portable electrical equipment into our organisations; from essential business computers, to the appliances in the workplace kitchen or any electrical tools of the trade.
With an increased reliance on such equipment there is inevitably a greater chance of something going wrong, and in the most serious cases this can be far worse than the kettle not working!
Using the excellent service from MPAT for your PAT testing or Cable Management will help you keep all your portable electrical appliances safe and compliant with any industry regulatory body (CQC, ISO, CHAS etc.), the HSE and your insurance company.
We will remember your PAT testing anniversary and contact you in advance to arrange retesting, keeping you compliant and safe at all times.
If between testing schedules you or your highly diligent staff members become unsure of a device, for a small fee we will assess the item for you separately outside of your schedule. If you are ever unsure of an items safety please remove from use and we can check.
We also offer to test only what is required during our visit (as per HSE PAT testing guidelines), providing you the opportunity to save money on your PAT testing costs. This is achieved by assessing your business type, the type of portable electrical equipment you own and how/where it’s used. You will probably not need the blanket ‘PAT test everything’ approach, which many PAT testing companies use, keeping the cost to you and your business where they should be.
Referrals – Please do refer us, customers who do will receive a discount on their next inspection and testing. This can be deducted from your bill, or alternatively we will donate the discounted amount to a charity of your choice in your name.
