Portable appliance testing (PAT) is the term used to describe the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. It needs to be carried out by an electrically competent person who has the correct equipment to do the tests coupled with the knowledge and ability to understand the implications of the results.
Surprisingly there isn’t actually a legal requirement to have your equipment PAT tested, the law simply requires an employer to ensure that their electrical equipment is maintained in order to prevent danger. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 require that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition. This is where portable appliance testing (PAT) can be a big help.
Getting your PAT testing completed by a professional gives you peace of mind, ensures that legally you are conforming to all regulations and takes the stress and strain away from you. Call us today to find out how we can help you with your PAT testing.
