PAT Testing in Kent

We provide all aspects of PAT Testing services throughout Kent

At GD Engineering Solutions Ltd, we offer our routine PAT testings to all property and business owners situated throughout Kent. We are a team of NAPIT approved electrical contractors and qualified electrical engineers, making us not only highly skilled in all areas of the electrical trade but also broadly experienced in all aspects of portable appliance testing. Therefore, all PAT services carried out by our team are complete to the highest possible standard, and with nothing less than optimum safety.

Over time, the condition of all portable electric appliances can deteriorate, putting the appliance and property in a potentially hazardous position. Unfortunately, electrical faults or general issues are not always easy to visibly detect in a portable appliance until the problem has escalated beyond repair, which can be highly stressful and extremely costly to replace. With this, our portable appliance testing services are in place to ensure all portable appliances throughout the property are working to their fullest potential, decreasing the chance of an unexpected breakdown or inconvenient issue from occurring. 

Our PAT services involve a number of intricate testings on all portable electric appliances, allowing us to inspect their condition as well as assess their workings. These inspections and tests will allow us to detect and locate any signs of wear and tear, faults or damages, which will prevent the issue from escalating further. 

Although routine PAT services are not a mandatory requirement, we strongly suggest that all businesses undergo a PAT service regularly as checking electrical equipment in the workplace for safety is a well established practice, following the introduction of the Electricity at Work Regulations (EAWR) in 1989, but also The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and subsequently, the original edition of IET Code of Practice in 1994 . Also The Housing Act 2004 came into force in April 2006 making landlords responsible to make sure that equipment in rented accommodation must be safe and kept in a safe condition. If any electrical equipment comes as a part of tenancy it should be checked for safety periodically as required. Each time a new tenancy is arranged, the equipment should be checked. That is why following regular PAT service will prevent any unexpected, disruptive problems from occurring with the appliances you rely on, on a day to day basis for your business to run. However, depending on your property type and equipment used, different service intervals may be suitable, and with this, we advise all customers to seek further advice from our team to conjure what would be most suitable for you personally.   

Safety is always a priority of ours at GD Engineering Solutions Ltd, along with ensuring our customer service is always faultless. It is our job to ensure all tests carried out are complete with efficiency whilst never compromising on the quality of our work, keeping any disruption or inconvenience to a minimum. Along with this, we ensure all regulations will be complied with from start to finish, keeping your property or business environment in a secure position for the entire duration of the PAT service. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) produce guidance on maintaining electrical equipment in three publications:

1. INDG236 Maintaining portable electrical equipment in low-risk environments

2. HSG107 Maintaining portable electrical equipment

3. HSG141 Electrical safety on construction sites

All publications are available free of charge from the HSE website:

At the end of every PAT service, we will provide a detailed report of our findings, along with labelling all appliances checked during the service, which will include the date the testing was carried out. 

Therefore, once your service is complete, you can then rest assured that all portable appliances fully comply with the health and safety standards, keeping the chance of an unexpected issue or hazard from occurring, to an absolute minimum.
