PAT (Electrical Equipment) Testing

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT), also known as a PAT inspection or electrical equipment testing, is the easiest way of ensuring that all your electrical equipment is safe to use.

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 makes it your responsibility to make sure all of your electrical equipment is safe and compliant. If not, you could be putting yourself, your employees, your office and ultimately your business at risk.

We’ve been providing PAT testing at Hawkesworth since 1993, providing nationwide electrical equipment testing services across the UK and Ireland.

Our network of experienced PAT testers carries out over seven million electrical equipment tests every year, keeping businesses across a wide range of industries compliant and safe.

PAT testing all across the UK

We have over 150 skilled and experienced testing engineers operating across the UK, as well as Ireland and the Channel Islands.

This means no matter where you are, we have a locally-based engineer who can make sure your commercial or rental property stays compliant.
