EET, formerly known as PAT (Portable Appliance Testing), is the process of inspecting and testing electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe and compliant with the relevant standards. Guardian Electrical offers EET as part of our Complete Managed Compliance Services.
As the duty holder, you have a legal obligation to ensure that the electrical equipment on your premises is safe and fit for purpose. Guardian Electrical can help you meet this obligation by conducting EET on your site and providing you with pass stickers for the main power supplies, which indicate that the tested item has passed the safety checks.
