PAT Testing Devon

PAT Testing in Devon - supporting the Devon Tourism Sector in its entirety!

PAT My Cottage was founded in South Devon and aims to support all areas of the Tourism Sector in Devon.

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing) is only one element of providing a safe and secure environment for your staff and guests, but, arguably, one of the most important.  If you would like to know more about the PAT Testing procedure for your Devon business, please visit our What is PAT pages.

PAT Testing not only helps you to reduce the risk of electric shock, it is a great step towards preventing fires. In the Financial year 18/19 Government reports show there were over 5000 fires caused by electrical appliances, many of these were in Devon.

For every electrical fire that starts, there will be a different set of circumstances leading up to the incident. The images shown below are only one cause of the problem. 

The black plug shown below is an illegal import: it has no fuse, no protective sleeve on the live and neutral pins and is too small – this could allow a user to touch live pins as the plug is inserted into the socket. Wherever you are in Devon, we would like to help so please drop us a line if you find these illegal plugs in your business – pictures are most welcome!

The white plug shown adjacent to the illegal plug is a Standard Plug and shows the mark “BS1363/A”, this confirms its compliance for use in the UK.
