The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers, employees and self-employed persons to take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no electrical danger results from the use of portable appliances. This means that a system needs to be put in place to ensure that all portable appliances are safe.

Part of this process will probably involve testing the appliances for; earth bond continuity, insulation resistance and functional tests. The level of inspection and testing required is dependant upon the risk of the appliance becoming faulty, which is in turn dependant upon the type of appliance, the nature of its use and the environment in which it is used. The objective being to avoid the risk of people getting electric shocks which could be life threatening.

For more information you may wish to consult a publication by The Institution of Electrical Engineers ‘Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment’ (ISBN: 978-0-86341-833-4) .

Very good and professional. The recommended electrician RH electrics Ryan was very good and nice guy. Recommended
Helen, Maidstone
Promptness of response : Sorry for delay in reply, I would like to say that Conrad was prompt to apply for the request I asked for. I was impressed that he kept me fully informed by txt when he thought he may be a little late. However he was only ten minutes late which was due to the traffic situation. He was very nice and polite and apologized for being late. Quality of service : Konrad did a really good job and also straightened up other wiring for me as well, that a previous electrician hadn't done properly. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Value for money : Konrad I think was very good value for money. He didn't charge over the odds and did little extras for me free of charge. Professionalism : Konrad was very polite and very professional at all times. He was lovely to speak with. I felt very comfortable in his company. I would without a doubt recommend KS Electrics to anyone and have confidence that he will do a good job and arrive to do it when he says he will. He would be the first person I would contact if I require or any friends and family require anything electrical in the future, yes he's a really nice guy.

I live in Darlington and had to get a company quickly to see to my Aunt in Newcastle who has dementia. Not knowing any local companies I used your site to find a good electrician. I tried 3 on your list, one couldn't do the job quickly, one took details and later got back to me and the last one could and did do the job quickly. Both the last 2 companies were very helpful and understanding. The one I employed (Home Assist) is continuing to do further work at my Aunt's house and I'm very pleased with them. I'm glad I used your site and will use it again should the need arise.
Helen, Newcastle
I was given three companies who could do the PAT testing that I required. One was too far away (in Canterbury) one in Dover (who never answered his phone) and one in Sandwich, ie Attman's. Their response was immediate and their service could not be beaten. Absolutely first class and I would recommend them to anybody.

Managed to do the job very quickly and was competitive in price
