Our Service

High Quality PAT Testing Services to give you (and your business) peace of mind!

Honest

In setting out the ethos for MPAT, Mark moved away from the business model most PAT testing companies follow where they will happily charge you every year for every appliance to be tested, even when it may not be required. At MPAT we work with you and assess what needs to be tested and when, understanding your compliance requirements and all the relevant regulations or awarding frameworks. All this is included in our realistic and competitively-priced PAT testing service.

Expert

With over 10 years of expert testing, our competent, qualified, DBS-checked and insured PAT testers will supply you with a professional and flexible service, providing you with a cost-effective way to keep your business safe. Additionally, all our testers are trained to provide the customer service expected by our valued customers.

24/7 Service*

No additional charge for out-of-hours testing. MPAT puts your productivity first. We will always endeavour to complete our PAT testing service at a time convenient to you; this enables us to limit the impact of testing on your business operations and has the added benefit of enabling us to progress with maximum efficiency!

What's included in our PAT Testing service?

  • Plug Check

    The plugs are checked for signs of damage, then taken apart (where not moulded) to check the condition of their wiring and fixed if required

  • Fuse Rating

    Correct fuse rating is checked

  • Cable Assessment

    Cables are assessed for any damage to the surrounding insulation.

  • Appliance Damage

    Appliances are inspected for any damage that could be a safety risk.

  • Pass/Fail Verdict

    When passed we will apply a 'passed' sticker to the appliance, bearing a unique number linked to your inspection and testing report. If an appliance fails and we cannot pass it following remedial work we apply a 'failed' sticker. The item will either be left where it is or in a location of your choosing

  • Certificate

    On completion, we will send you your MPAT inspection and testing report within 24 hours. Where possible we prefer to send this report as a PDF file (saves trees!), however we will happily send you a hard copy if required.

Our Values

1. Safety

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.

2. Commitment

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.

3. Regulations

‘Electrical equipment is required to be properly maintained to prevent danger. Inspections are necessary…’ IET Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment, 4th Edition

MPAT’s PAT testing service ensures that all your portable appliances will comply with current legislation.

The responsibilities for the safety of persons at work are detailed in legislation, with the following relevant to electrical maintenance:

4. Cable Management

Albert Einstein famously quipped:

If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then is an empty desk a sign?

But what about under your desk?!

We create safe and clear leg space by tidying messy, tangled cables in a systematic manner.
