Essex-PAT-Testing is part of Essexio Ltd.

We carry out PAT testing in and around Essex

Business PAT Testing

As a business and an employer you have a duty of care to all of your employees, customers and visitors. By having all of your Portable Appliances tested you will have taken a large step towards fulfilling your obligation to them.

If you choose not to put in place a regular programme of Portable Appliance testing this may have implications on your insurance policy, particularly if a claim is made relating to an electrical injury in your workplace.


Insurance companies tend to assume that business owners are complying with all th regulations covering their workplace when they take out insurance.

Insurance companies may delay payment or not pay out at all if they find that  the regulations are not being adhered to.


Employer's Responsibilities are laid out in the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (Reg 4(2) and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 value our customers and have made our pricing structure as competative as possible so that we can provide good value PAT testing to suit every budget and circumstance.  The competative nature of our pricing means that everyone has access to the peace of mind provided by PAT testing.

Landlord PAT Testing

As a Landlord you have a duty to prevent harm to your tenants from electrical items supplied in your property. Portable Appliance Testing is widely regarded as the most effective way to achieve this.

Without implementing a regular programme of testing you could become legally liable for damages resulting from untested appliances.

This is obviously not what any Landlord sets out to do, so, by having all your portable appliances such as Fridges, Freezers, Microwave Ovens, Vacuum Cleaner and any other items that are plugged into the mains tested, you will have taken reasonable steps to ensure the safety of your tenant.


We are happy to be commissioned for work directly with landlords or working with a Property Leasing Agent or Property Management Companies.


We are happy discuss your requirements and can work with you on a scheduling basis for properties that you hold on your books.



Landlord Responsibilities are laid out in


The Housing Act 2004 (England & Wales)

Microwave Testing

Testing Microwave Ovens for Leakage and Safety.


We offer a testing service for microwave ovens which includes checking for leakage and safety.

This can be carried out at the same time as your Portable Appliance Testing.

Poor maintenance and poor hygiene can mean that your oven could develop leakage levels over and above the recommended levels.

Testing on your microwave involves measuring the radiation levels around the oven to ensure that the item is in compliance with legal limits and door seals and safety interlock switches are inspected for any damage that may have occurred.


Microwave Ovens are probably one of the most heavily used items in a workplace and do need regular checks to see that they are operating safely.


Microwaves are priced at £4.50 per appliance for leakage tests.
