PAT Testing Bristol & Surround Areas
Firelec delivers PAT Testing in Bristol & surrounding areas in line with the Health and safety regulations which require that electrical appliances are safe and maintained to prevent harm to workers. Many equipment manufacturers recommend testing at regular intervals to ensure continual safety; the interval between tests depending on both the type of appliance and the environment in which it is to be used.

The responsibility to have this checked lies with the manufacturer or the importer and is policed by Trading Standards.
Firelec own testing equipment has been specifically developed for PAT inspections, based on the testing equipment used by manufacturers to ensure compliance with the British Standard Code of Practice and European product standards relevant to that type of appliance.

Bristol PAT Testing requirements for students living in Halls of Residence
Many Universities including Bristol will state in term contracts that students living in student halls must have all personal electrical items PAT Tested. This can sometimes be a requirement of their building insurance policy and at other times be a part of their own electrical safety policy.
What this means is that any electrical item that students take with them to their student halls must be PAT Tested. This includes T. V’s, X-Boxes, laptops or PC's and even fans or heaters. Firelec is passionate about the safety of all electrical appliances which is why we are the Premier company to choose for PAT Testing in Bristol.
