Cobb Electrical are fully qualified to carry out Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) and offer competitive rates. Whether you have one appliance or one hundred, we are happy to offer a free estimate to carry out your testing.
We recommend that PAT testing is carried out annually. Some insurers require commercial equipment to be tested as part of their cover, it also reduces the risk you the employer.
PAT testing or Portable Appliance Testing is an important part of any health & safety policy. The Health & Safety Executive states that 25% of all reportable electrical accidents involve portable appliances. The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment. This in effect requires the implementation of a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing. The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances:
Where appliances are used by employees.
Where the public may use appliances in establishments such as hospitals, schools, hotels, shops etc.
Where appliances are supplied or hired.
Where appliances are repaired or serviced.
The level of inspection and testing required is dependent upon the risk of the appliance becoming faulty, which is in turn dependent upon the type of appliance, the nature of its use and the environment in which it is used.

Just wanted to thank you for the installation of the heaters. It was a job well done and I am very pleased with them. The two men involved in the installation were very amicable and left the place spotless. I will be very happy to recommend you to others.
I was suitably impressed with the works carried out and Dan and Liam were friendly and professional. It is great to see there’s good companies out there still! I will ensure you get future electrical works.
Your men were great. Checked everything out with me, cleaned up, were polite and made every effort to do what I wanted (whilst not damaging floorboards!). So nice to be able to feel trusting that the job will be done properly. The whole experience has been positive, so many thanks.
We moved out of our house for 9 months whilst it was completely refurbished. They carried out all the electrical installation inside the house and fitted the lighting for the newly designed garden. They listened carefully to what we wanted and were always friendly and courteous.
Thank you for your help, I would like to pass on thanks to Liam and Josh who worked quickly and efficiently to get the job done in a very quick time for me.
Thank you, I was very impressed with the professional and expert service
First class service. I have been using Cobb Electrical for about 5 years now and I can recommend them 100%. They are polite, smartly turned out and turn up bang on time. The invoices are very fair and detailed. It’s nice to support a genuine, local family firm. A pleasure to deal with.
Thank you so much for the excellent work that was done and the absolutely superb customer service! Really appreciate it and I will definitely use you guys again.
Please thank the guys for all the hard work they have put into my home in Hove. I am thinking in particular about the kitchen ceiling! All of them are a pleasure to work with and very professional.
