Commonly known as PAT, PAT
inspection or PAT Testing, Portable Appliance Testing is the term used
to describe the routine inspection of portable electrical appliances, to
ensure they are safe for use. The National Association of Professional
Inspectors and Testers (NAPIT) define a portable appliance as 'any
electrical appliance which can, or is intended to, be moved whilst
connected to an electrical supply'.
We carry out full visual, earth, insulation & leakage checks for items.
PAT Testing is advised for all public buildings, businesses and public areas. An insurance company would normally require PAT testing to be carried out annually before supplying employees insurance or public liability insurance. Also in the event of a fire or incident involving an untested portable electrical appliance it would be very difficult for the owner to claim no responsibility.
As a landlord The Electrical (Safety) Regulations 1994 requires that all mains electrical equipment supplied with the accommodation (for example, cookers, washing machines, kettles etc.) remains safe In the workplace legislation of specific relevance to electrical maintenance is the Health and Safety at Work 1974, The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.
It is clear that, in combination, these regulations apply to all electrical equipment used in, or associated with, places of work
