What Is PAT (Portable Appliance Testing)
PAT testing or Portable Appliance Testing is a specialised process of testing all portable, electrical appliances to ensure they are safe.
PAT testing or Portable Appliance Testing should be an essential part of any company’s health & safety policy.
The Electricity at Work Regulations 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 electrical equipment. As a result each business essentially has to put in place a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing. The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places such an obligation on companies in a variety of circumstances.
