Conceived by Scott Caseby (Managing Director)
and John Linklater (Sales Director) PAT UK was set up in March 2006
to fill an
obvious gap in the
electrical inspection and testing marketplace.
electrical inspections and PAT testing are carried out by electrical
contractors who charge exorbitant costs for a second rate service,
sometimes using apprentices to carry out important Health and Safety
checks or supplying test registers and certificates which do not
meet industry standards.
option for the customer is the 'specialist' PAT testing company who
seldom use qualified electricians and routinely fail to update their
staff on the most recent regulation changes. Contact your PAT
testing company and ask to see the certification and qualifications
of the engineer who carried out your testing - you may be surprised.
At PAT UK we
use only fully qualified ENGINEERS
for our testing. With competitive prices and a total dedication to
customer service we offer a fast, efficient service using fully
calibrated EQUIPMENT by brand
leaders such as MEGGER, ROBIN and FLUKE.
consistency and accuracy in our testing we operate a quality control
system meaning a percentage of all work carried out is checked by
our Chief Electrician JAMES REITH who has over 30 years
experience in the electrical trade.

pairs as a team.
Two people working
together doing one job. One of the team is an electrical engineer
whose main job is to carry out the testing. The other's main
responsibility is data collection.
first job is to establish whether the equipment to be tested is
switched off. To do this the mouse is moved and the engineer will
look to see if this activated the VDU and will listen for any
activation of the hard drive. A visual check is also made to see if
the power light is on. If the computer is still on then, depending
on the instruction of the customer, the computer is either powered
down by the engineer or not tested.
the computer is off the preparation for testing begins. Files and
other items obstructing access to the cable management are moved.
The engineer should aim to move the customer's items as little as
possible, but allow adequate access to the cable management system.
This will allow for as little disruption as possible when the
testing is complete. The aim will be for the customer to be
unaware that electrical items have been tested with the exception of
the newly applied barcodes and pass labels.
this stage the engineer begins a visual inspection. He will trace
plugs to their respective item. While doing this he will visually
inspect the cables and items. The engineer will ask the following
| Is the plug ok, not
| Is the cable
securely fixed to the plug?
| Is the cable free
| Is the main unit
secure and free from obvious defects?
| Are the cables
organised and free from obstructions?
| Is the socket
| Is the item's
