Why Choose IC Safety

Fully Trained & Qualified

I am a professionally qualified electrical tester specialising in pat testing. I am  City & Guild Qualified (2377-601 In-Service Inspection & Testing of Electrical Equipment & 2377-201 Management Requirements for the Management of Electrical Equipment), with a dedication to providing a quality service. It does not matter how large or small your business is, commitment to safety is always my priority.  

If you are looking for a company that will simply provide you with a 'pass' or 'fail' sticker without proper testing, then look somewhere else. I care about your safety and all my work is carried out to 'C&G 2377 (601 and 201) Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment' and you will be provided with a full report at the end of the inspection.  
based in Kendal I cover the north west, the Lake District, Ambleside, Windermere, Keswick etc, Lancaster, Morecambe and the rest of Cumbria.

I have £5m public liability insurance and DBS checked.

The Latest and best Technology for PAT testing

Inspection and safety testing of portable appliances with the latest computerised equipment ‘ pat testing‘. Professional Testing is carried out in accordance with the IEE Code of Practice. Minor faults found during inspection can be repaired, and if replacement fuses are required, they will be provided free of charge. 

Our Services

  Included in the price are the following: 

  • An in-depth inspection and test of each appliance using industry leading PAT testing equipment.
  • A consistent approach to PAT testing so you get a high quality service every time.
  • Images of failed appliances provided and an explanation telling you why it failed.
  • On site custom labels to record the lifespan of your appliance.
  • Certificate and report.
  • Free reminder service to ensure you don’t have to worry about expiry dates.
  • Replacement of faulty fuses and plugs.
  • Free expert advice to help you maintain your electrical appliances.
  • Microwave Leakage Testing - although the leakage test requirement has been removed from the Code of Practice, it still often makes sense to carry out a microwave leakage test at the same time as the standard PAT test.  

Working With You

If you have a shop, salon, cafe, hotel, holiday park, rented holiday property, or any business large or small, then I can provide a PAT testing service for all of your appliances.  I will work around your business hours to ensure that all testing is carried out with minimum disruption to your business. I can work in the evenings or at weekends to fit around you and your business hours.    

No job too small - It does not matter how large or small your business is, my passion is safety and all customers are equally important. There is no minimum to the number of items I will test and I can rectify minor faults as I find them.
