What is P.A.T. Testing ?

P.A.T. Testing is an Important aspect of a company’s health & safety policy to ensure that staff aren’t harmed by any electrical equipment within a business premises.
This should be performed regularly to protect company employees, customers and yourself, against any accidents and liability within the workplace.
