AssetCool PAT testing in Leeds

Here at Hi-Spec we understand that electrical compliance is crucial, so we offer professional and cost-effective PAT testing in Leeds and throughout West Yorkshire – which is exactly why AssetCool contacted us.

AssetCool is made up of a talented team of doctors, engineers, scientists and commercial specialists who innovate and develop pioneering coating formulations which are applied to power lines and other electrical transmission and distribution assets.

We were asked to head down to AssetCool’s premises at Nexus, Leeds University, to put their lab equipment through its paces, making sure everything is completely safe for use.

PAT testing of laboratory equipment

Portable appliance testing, or PAT, is the process of visually examining and testing electrical equipment to ensure that it’s safe for staff and/or visitors to use – and while it’s not a legal requirement in itself, it allows businesses to comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.

Essentially it’s the business owner’s responsibility to assess the frequency of testing based on associated risk, and of course in a laboratory environment there’s a need to ensure all equipment is both safe and serviceable.

During our PAT visit, we tested a total of 102 items of lab equipment, working methodically and efficiently and providing a full report of all items tested. Of course due to coronavirus, we also made sure that our electricians wore fully Covid compliant PPE for our staff and customers’ safety.

If you require help with your PAT testing in Leeds or anywhere in the West Yorkshire area, get in touch with our friendly team and we’ll be happy to help.
