Pass the PAT - outsourcing your electrical equipment testing

If you are a facilities or estates manager, you are responsible for ensuring the building you look after is comfortable, appealing and most importantly… safe.

You need to manage both your hard and soft FM services, providing facilities that are not only of exceptional quality, but are cost-effective too.

This is where outsourcing some of the services you provide can be of benefit.

PAT testing for facilities and estate managers – what you need to know

Why outsource your PAT testing?

Rather than have PAT testing (also known as electrical equipment testing) engineers in-house, outsourcing your PAT testing services can have a range of benefits for your FM company.



  • Flexibility. You can increase or decrease the number of testers you need at any one time, making you more receptive to your customer’s needs
  • Reduced costs. You are only paying for the PAT tester’s time, saving money and meaning you can provide a more cost-effective and efficient service
  • Increased coverage. Outsourcing your PAT testing means you can cover more buildings and increase the coverage that your FM company offers
  • Business growth. You can apply for a broader range of tenders and quotes if you outsource PAT testing, helping your business and portfolio grow
