What Is PAT Testing?
Ensuring that electrical appliances are well maintained and safe for continued use is a legal requirement.
Just like a yearly MOT test on a vehicle ensures that it is safe for use. Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing) includes a number of checks and tests which ensure that electrical appliances are safe for continued use.
Having your equipment professionally tested by one of our technicians helps to prevent injuries or even deaths at your workplace.
The Health & Safety Executive states that 25% of all reportable electrical accidents involve portable appliances.
The Electricity at Work Regulations Act place a legal responsibility on employers, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment. This in effect requires the implementation of a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing.
The Health and Safety Executive states that there are 1,200 accidents in a work place reported every year involving shocks and burns, 35 of which are fatal. The Electricity at Work (EAW) Regulations 1989, therefore, requires employers and self-employed persons to take reasonable, practical steps to minimise the risks involved with using electrical appliances.
The easiest and most comprehensive way to do this is by way of Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing).
In addition, employers and landlords can satisfy insurers and indeed obtain reductions in insurance premiums by providing evidence of regular portable appliance testing.
Insurance companies assume that when giving insurance cover to a business, the owners of that business are complying with all regulations necessary. An insurance company may reduce, delay, or even refuse to pay on a claim for damage if an untested appliance has caused the damage.
In today’s culture, pat testing is the easiest way to satisfy the demands of the law and ensure that you are looking after your employees.
