Why do we need to get PAT testing done?

In every business someone has to be responsible for managing health and safety, and it is that person who must ensure electrical equipment that the business owns, is safe to use at all times, as is required by the Electricity at Work Regulations. PAT testing is the best way to check an electrical appliance is safe, and to assess whether maintenance is required.

Regular PAT tests check if an appliance is safe, or if repairs are needed, and in most cases the engineer doing the tests should be able to complete the repairs. The PAT tests will also help to assess the risks associated with the appliances being used at work.

Regular PAT tests helps to reduce the risk of fire, through fault finding and resolution; and in turn fire risk assessments require regular PAT testing to be carried out to reduce the risk to the business.

Regular PAT tests help to identify counterfeit equipment and recalled products, thus helping to remove dangerous equipment from the workplace.

Regular PAT tests are usually required as part of an insurance policy, or for health and safety accreditation. For example most commercial insurers require annual PAT tests to be carried out, to reduce the risk of electrical accident insurance claims.

PAT tests are required for Government led licensing requirements, such as for caravan lettings, licensed premises, medical centre inspections, etc.

These are just a few of the many good reasons why you should get your electrical equipment PAT tested.

When we do PAT testing for our clients we carry out repairs automatically, usually free of charge, do additional checks on Microwave ovens, assess the safety of equipment use in your workplace, recommend appropriate retest periods and get your PAT test Certificate to you within 5 days.
