PAT Testing aka Electrical Safety Test

PAT or portable appliance testing, also known as electrical safety testing is performed to determine whether electrical equipment is fit for continued service or if maintenance or replacement is necessary. By law, duty holders (business owners, managers etc.) must ensure that all electrical equipment the business uses is safe.

The main hazards when using unsafe electrical appliances are:

  • electric shock and burns from contact with live parts
  • injury from exposure to arcing, fire from faulty electrical equipment
  • explosion caused by unsuitable electrical apparatus

Many institutions, public as well as private, often require contractors to comply with the HSE regulations when using electrical equipment on their premises. A lot of insurance companies also include this in the application process. The link to HSE electrical safety: http://www.hse.gov.uk/toolbox/electrical.htm

You could demonstrate your compliance with safety requirements by having your portable appliances (which also includes fixed and transportable equipment) PAT tested.
