PAT Testing For Small Businesses:

All business owners must ensure that electrical products used in the workplace should not pose a safety risk to those that use them.

In short, this means that employers and landlords a like must ensure that all electrical work equipment is safe, suitable for purpose and properly maintained in good order.

This responsibility under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and other legislation extends to anything with a mains plug, from electrical kettles and cleaning equipment to PCs and photocopiers.

To help you comply with these requirements Dolphin provide professional electrical checks, inspection and testing services on all portable appliances. Dolphin have extensive experience in provision of PAT testing to a wide range of businesses in the Sussex area and throughout the south east of England, both large and small.
