Why PAT Test?

Businesses, Landlords and Charities PAT test because they have a legal responsibility to ensure  the equipment they supply is safe for use. This responsibility is made clear under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974.  PAT testing provides the business with a certificate which proves the business took steps to ensure the equipment it supplied was safe for use.  The certificate is evidence and may be of use in a court if facing legal action to prove the business took its responsibility seriously. Some insurance companies require PAT testing to be undertaken as a means of reducing risk.

Who has PAT Testing done?

Businesses, Charities and Landlords get PAT testing done. This is because they have a responsibility to ensure that electrical equipment they supply to employees, tenants and the public is safe to use. They get a certificate to prove the equipment has been tested and safe for use. Examples of places we PAT test for are:

1) Offices with computers and other electrical equipment.

2) Tenanted Properties who supply appliances such as a washing machine.

3) Businesses with electrical equipment ranging from a hairdressers blow dryer to a mechanics lead lamp.

What is PAT Testing?

PAT test stands for “Portable Appliance Test”. A PAT test is a series of checks and tests on an electrical appliance to ensure its safe for use.

A PAT Test includes:

1) Visual Inspection.

2) Earth Bond Testing.

3) Insulation Resistance Testing.

4) Load Testing.

5) Earth Leakage Test.

6) Basic Functional Testing.

How often should PAT Testing be carried out?

PAT testing should be carried out at regular intervals. The time between PAT tests is decided by the type of equipment and environment. A computer in an office is not as likely to require testing as often as a drill on a construction site because the environment is less onerous and less likely to receive damage. A computer in an office may need testing every 12 months and a drill on a construction site every 6 months. There is detailed guidance on how often various equipment should be tested and we can on request provide this information.
