Home OwnerPAT testing
PAT testing, also known as Portable Appliance Testing, is required by Irish law for retail owners, companies, and landlords. Insurance providers are increasingly requesting PAT testing records before offering coverage. Portable Appliance Testing also refers to the inspection and testing of hand-held, portable, and plug-in electrical equipment while it is in operation.
The Irish Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2007 and SI 732 of the Regulations require you, as the owner, manager, or occupier of a place of work or residential complex, to ensure that PAT testing is carried out regularly in your property, with records kept for five years.
In Ireland, it is the responsibility of business owners, directors, managers, and safety officers to guarantee that PAT testing of all electrical equipment used in the workplace is included in the workplace health and safety inspection schedule.

What Exactly Does This Service Entail?
We provide a full PAT testing service at Oxley Electrical & Security Ltd. Our service is available for all voltages between 115 and 400 volts. Our first job will be to come to your home and survey all the portable appliances that need to be checked. A piece of electrical equipment that is not part of a fixed installation but is connected to a fixed installation through a flexible cable, plug, and socket is known as a portable appliance. Toasters, kettles, microwaves, refrigerators, freezers, and a vast range of electrical equipment are only a few examples.
After the survey is completed and you give us permission to begin, we will meet with you again to agree on a testing plan that meets your needs. We’ll then schedule a time with you to cause the least amount of disruption to your company, and we’ll get started. After payment is made, you will get a complete report that includes a list of test results and your compliance certification.
