Re: PAT - Portable Appliance Testing

We're trying to get staff - Damian whom you met in the fat meetings - to trained in doing pat testing - we need to get everything in FC+ pat tested also, and that is a very ing list of items. Would be really good to have in-house person to do this. It would cost about 200.
