Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing) is an electrical safety check carried out on your portable electrical items to ensure electrical safety for you and your staff.
Why is PAT Testing important?
Health and safety legislation places an obligation on the employer, or responsible person for commercial premises, to ensure that any portable electrical equipment provided for use is safe and fit for purpose.
Also, the ‘Electricity at Work Regulations’ place a legal responsibility on employers, employees, and the self-employed to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of portable electrical equipment.
Therefore, to ensure your organisation remains legally compliant under the regulations, you are required to carry out PAT Testing.
Carrying out PAT Testing provides evidence that you are complying with your Duty of Care in the event of an incident or HSE investigation, evidences compliance with the requirements of the ISO 45001 standard, and is likely to be a requirement of your insurance policy.
Recommended frequency of PAT Testing can vary depending on the item being tested. Our expert team of fully qualified and experienced Electricians can offer further advice and guidance.
