There are many myths surrounding PAT testing, the most common is that a business MUST by law have all of appliances tested each year. There are no laws set out that force you to test your portable appliances annually, however as an employer your legal duty under the ‘Electricity at Work Regulations (1989)’ (EWR) is to provide a safe working environment for your employees. So depending on the type of equipment, how often it is used and the environment that it is used in will depend on the frequency of an official PAT test.

We offer a drop in service at our Beeston branch where businesses can drop in and have an appliance tested there and then (there is plenty of parking if you are bringing a Van Load!).


We do not charge extra for very minor repairs such as switching a misrated fuse or tidying up a plug, however for items requiring more serious repairs we will offer advice and/or a quote.


All of our technicians at designacable are certified PAT testers and are backed by a £4 million public liability insurance.


Please do not hesitate to give us a call if you have any further questions on 01159 225 660
