What is PAT Testing?
PAT Testing is the more commonly referred to practice of Portable Appliance Testing which is the most recognised and efficient method for checking electrical equipment is safe to use. PAT Testing is carried out because electrical equipment that is faulty (not safe)… is DANGEROUS.
Under UK Law all places of work (whether they are office-based, industrial, construction, schools, hotels, shops and all others) must ensure the portable electrical appliances they provide to workers and users are maintained in a safe condition. In the event of an accident or a claim a business or organisation may need to be able to prove that the appliance was maintained in a safe condition. The only currently recognised way to prove the safety of electrical appliance is through having portable appliance testing carried out.
What is often referred to as a PAT testing certificate (a breakdown of all electrical appliances used at a work place) is required as proof of safety. That is why you need to get PAT Testing done.
What is a Portable Appliance?
The definition of a portable appliance is any appliance that disconnects from the mains electricity supply without the intervention of an electrician; in other words – any electrical appliance fitted with a plug. A “plug” can be removed from the socket, disconnecting the electricty supply, and anyone can do this. A plug can take many forms, and be of various colours and shapes but ultimately the process is the same, and this plug is what makes the appliance portable.
