Portable Appliance Testing

All our prices are incluive of all plugs, remakes and fuse changes and start from as little as 65p per item.

'As may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger'


The above statement is taken from the Electricity at Work Act 1989 and in basic terms means that any electrical appliances on site must be maintained to minimise any risk.


The new 4th Edition Code of Practice was released in November 2012. The main change here is that each establishment needs to appoint a duty holder who must then make a risk based assessment for the frequency of test required for their specific environment.


Please click here for the Seaward new Portable Appliance Testing Guide, incorporating the 4th Edition Code of Practice and the new Frequency of Test Table on page 19 of the booklet. 


The Health and Safety Executive states that 25% of all reportable electrical accidents involve portable appliances.


Risk encompasses many factors that can eventually influence a final decision and should include the following:


  • The Environment
  • The Users
  • The Equipment Construction 
  • The Equipment Type
  • The Frequency of Use
  • The Type of installation methods
  • Previous Records


Most of customers chose to have testing carried out annually as this can be more cost effective that carrying out your own inspection and logging in interim periods.


If you need any assistance with your risk assessment or your requirements to test, please contact us for advice.


Please note that we do offer a price matching service; if you can get a like for like service at a cheaper price, we will always try our best to match it.
