As part of your ongoing appliance electrical safety testing, STS Electrical Services 

can assist you in complying with current Health and Safety regulations. Electrical safety is our top priority for the wor

k environment, public areas as well as domestic properties.

Using the Seaward Apollo 500 tester, our engineers utilise the latest in PAT testing technology to ensure your equipment is properly tested. Our PAT testing engineers take great care with the inspection and testing of each appliance.

A record is made of the items tested and a PAT test certificate is given upon completion of the tests. Our customers will receive a free consultation to establish the frequency of formal visual inspections. At the same time the regularity of the combined visual inspections and testing will be established. Our PAT test pricing structure for Galway and the West of Ireland offers affordable rates for landlords and small businesses as well as medium to large companies.
