Appliance testing for your business

It is a legal requirement to have electrical appliances tested to ensure they are safe and workable for what they are intended. Over 25% of all electrical accidents involve appliances, so it is essential that they are regularly tested so do not pose any danger to your buildings, employees or members of the public.

The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places an obligation on appliance testing where appliances are used by employees, the public (such as schools, hotels, hospitals), and where they are hired or supplied.

CGH electricians are highly trained in every aspect of FAT & PAT Testing. Your electrical appliances will be tested to the highest standards in line with the latest IEE Code of Practice and Electricity at Work Regulations.

What do we test?

Here are just a few examples of the appliances that we regularly test and maintain:

  • Hand dryers
  • Storage heaters
  • Machine tools
  • Cookers
  • Computers
  • Fridges

All employers and organisations have a duty to meet numerous health and safety regulations, and one of the ways in which this can be done is by choosing CGH for all your fixed appliance testing (FAT) and portable appliance testing (PAT).
