What is PAT Testing?
Portable appliance testing (PAT) is the term used to describe the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. Most electrical safety defects can be found by visual examination but some types of defect can only be found by testing. However, it is essential to understand that visual examination is an essential part of the process because some types of electrical safety defect can't be detected by testing alone.
A relatively brief user check (based upon simple training and perhaps assisted by the use of a brief checklist) can be a very useful part of any electrical maintenance regime. However, more formal visual inspection and testing by a competent person may also be required at appropriate intervals, depending upon the type of equipment and the environment in which it is used
Why PAT test?
PAT testing of electrical appliances needs to be an important part of any health & safety policy. The Health & Safety Executive advise that all electrical appliances within all rentable residential properties and all commercial premises undertake annual PAT testing. With the influx of cheap electrical goods from foreign countries due to globalisation, most of these electrical goods have not undergone as strict a testing procedure as UK manufactured goods. Therefore, the regular safety checks of these products becomes of paramount importance.
According to the Health & Safety Executive, portable appliances account for 25% of all reportable electrical accidents. To ensure that no danger results from the use of such portable equipment, Electricity at Work regulations place a legal responsibility on employers and employees to comply with the provision set. Following the obligation of the Health & Safety at Work Act (1974), employers should take reasonable practical steps to ensure no danger results from the use of such equipment in the following circumstances:
1. Where employees use appliances
2. Where appliances may be used by the public, in establishments such as hospitals, schools, hotels, shops, etc.
3. In places where appliances may be hired or supplied.
4. In situations where appliances are serviced or repaired.
