Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
Examination of electrical appliances is called Portable Appliance Testing (PAT), and it is designed to ensure that your equipment is safe to use. Basically, our engineers will test anything with a plug on it. Our electrician will provide a certificate detailing what appliances have been tested. PAT Testing is a periodically testing process of your electrical appliances to ensure they are safe to use and should be an essential part of any company’s health and safety policy.
It is a legal requirement to maintain all portable electrical equipment in a safe condition. Therefore, the only way to comply with that is to carry out PAT testing and establish an appropriate schedule. So whilst PAT testing itself isn‘t legally required it’s a recognised way to ensure compliance with the various regulations such as:
Health and Safety at Work; the safety at Work Act 1974; Regulations 1999, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, etc. Furthermore, The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 puts the responsibility of care upon both the employers and the staff to ensure the safety of all persons using the work premises.
PAT Testing is not the same as Electrical Installation Condition Report. The testing doesn‘t look at the actual wiring of a property of the fuse board.
The Electrical Safety Council’s Guidance recommends PAT Testing to help landlord’s obligations to be sure that any portable electrical appliances provided to the tenant are safe at the point of letting and at periodic intervals after that. Tenants should also be provided with full instruction manuals and be told to read and follow them.

Frequently asked questions
Our clients about us
We were very impressed with Snow White. They renovated our bathroom, moved our boiler, replaced the ceilings on the first floor and fully rewired & re-plastered. They were always responsive, reliable and delightful to have around - always courteous to our neighbours and good at tidying up after themselves. Completion was a little bit delayed due to unforeseen issues with the ceilings, but the team kept us fully aware and worked until 7.30pm on a Saturday in an attempt to get everything finished within the deadline - we had to make them go home! Highly recommend these guys - the best building company we have worked with in London so far, and we will certainly be using them again.
Alex Scafolding Ltd
Daniel and his team are very hardworking, reliable and meticulous, and have done a great job of renovating the whole house inside and out including installing new bathrooms, decorating, carpentry, pointing and leadwork. They are always happy to help and we would definitely recommend them and use their services again.
We used Snow White to completely landscape and renovate every aspect of our garden. From levelling the ground to extending our patio, adding edging stones and outdoor lighting to installing premium artificial turf and a shed, every care and attention was taken.
Fantastic service for both decorating and garden fencing. Highly professional. Would recommend.
Reliable company, very impressed with the handy man`s work. Recomended!
Snow White gave me a very reasonable estimate for repairing and repainting the outside of my house. So pleased I used them as I'm delighted with the results. Can't fault them.
Snow White have done several jobs for us, ranging from garden maintenance and installing fencing to blocking up an old doorway and making some bespoke shelving. The quality of every job have been excellent. Their staff all work hard; arrive at 8am and work through to late afternoon to get the job done. Unlike many companies, it's easy to get hold of the boss, they're always willing to quote even for small jobs, and the quotes arrive quickly. After trying a few other companies, with mixed results, we'll be sticking with Snow White.
Galin repaired brickwork around my fishpond and replaced the waterfall and capping stones. He did a fantastic job and no detail I requested was too much trouble. I will happily use Snow White again for any building or repair jobs. They are a great team and very fairly priced.
