Portable Appliance Testing or PAT Testing is the process of checking electrical appliances for safety through a series of visual inspections and electronic tests.

There are many common myths about portable appliance testing (PAT) - find out the key facts about the inspection and testing of portable electrical equipment from the HSE by clicking HERE to be taken to the HSE information page.

How many items do you need PAT testing? Remember, if an item has a detachable mains lead, then the item and mains lead would count as 2 separate items for testing. For more than 1000 items please contact us for a price.

All electrical installations deteriorate with age and use. They should therefore be inspected and tested at regular intervals to check whether they are in a satisfactory condition for continued use. These safety checks are commonly referred to as 'periodic inspection and testing' and the results of the inspection recorded on an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR).

We often find that venues using stage lighting systems are either not getting this part of the electrical system inspected, or think that they are getting it inspected by their regular electrician but aren't, as the electrician doesn't know how to test the specialist system so they either ignore it or put it as a limitation on the EICR.  This is a potentially very dangerous situation due to the nature of the stage lighting installation and the fact that it is often worked on at height.

This calculator is designed to calculate the price for the stage lighting system EICR.  If you require more to be tested then we can complete EICRs for entire venues, but please contact us for a price for this.

Remember to include final dimmer circuits, hard power circuits and distribution circuits feeding the dimmers. We calculate the prices in batches of 12 circuits so round up to the next 12.

The Work Equipment Condition Report (WECR) covers the items that often fall through the gaps, things like lighting bars and dead hung equipment that don't raise and lower so don't come under LOLER, 

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) requires that equipment is inspected to ensure it is correctly installed and does not subsequently deteriorate.  A record of these inspections should be kept and that's where this inspection comes in.

Each different room requires its own report. Each report can contain multiple items.

What is the total number of fixed lighting bars in all of the rooms?

What is the total number of stage curtain tracks in all of the rooms?

What is the total number of other items that you would like to be included within the WECR in all of the rooms?

The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (often abbreviated to LOLER) place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over lifting equipment.  

Safe and successful lifting operations depend on the continued safety of the lifting equipment and accessories that are used. Failures in this kind of equipment can result in significant or even fatal injuries. Health and safety law therefore places a number of specific obligations on those providing, controlling and using lifting equipment to properly manage these risks.

In addition to the requirements for safe design and construction, all lifting equipment should also be checked and maintained as necessary to keep it safe for use, therefore lifting equipment must be thoroughly examined, normally once or twice a year, and a record kept of these examinations.

Examples of lifting equipment you may have are any lighting bars that raise or lower, electric or manual chain hoists, and shackles, slings and steel wire ropes designed for lifting.

The inspection, reporting and record-keeping obligations of LOLER are detailed in regulations 9, 10 and 11. Read more on this from the HSE

e.g. Lighting bars

e.g. Hemp bars

e.g. slings and shackles

Access Requirements

Our engineers come with standard access equipment that allows us to reach equipment up to 5.5m off the ground, as long as the floor is flat and level (not raked or inclined).  If the venue has an inclined floor, or is higher than 5.5m, we can provide alternative access equipment to allow us to carry out the inspections.

Are any of the rooms where inspections are to take place over 5.5m high or have an inclined floor?
