Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)

Home / Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)

Portable Electrical Appliance testing prevents fires both in the home and at work.

When people work with electrical appliances, legislation specifies that the appliance must be safe in order to prevent harm to workers. Many types of equipment require regular testing to ensure safety. The interval between tests depends upon the type of appliance and the environment it is used in.

Every item of electric current using (either fixed or portable) equipment within your installation or used by your staff needs to undergo a testing regime which ensures that items such as computers (their leads only), hand appliances such as drills, grinders, mixers, vacuum cleaners, kettles, toasters, hair dryers etc and portable appliances such as microwaves, refrigerators, boilers, washing machines, dishwashers etc and the like are in a safe and serviceable condition.

But probably the most compelling reason to have your equipment checked is to consider the likely consequences if you do not have the testing done and one of your staff were to be killed or injured!

In PAT Testing each Appliance will be inspected for Plugs, Fuse sizes, Cables, Appliance Housing, Earth Bond, Insulation, Load Test, Earth Leakage etc.
