PAT Testing

If you would like a quote for pat testing or some advice relating to the regulations surrounding it; please fill in the form below

The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment. This in effect requires the implementation of a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing.

The level of inspection and testing required is dependant upon the risk of the appliance becoming faulty, which is in turn dependant upon the type of appliance, the nature of its use and the environment in which it is used.

The Institution of Electrical Engineers published the “Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment”. This guide forms the basis for portable appliance testing in the U.K.

What’s Involved in PAT Testing

 
A qualified PAT Testing specialist will be able to perform tests and checks on a variety of appliances using PAT testers that will be able to show if the appliance has passed or failed testing including earth continuity, lead polarity, and insulation resistance, among others for more advanced testers. 
 
A Certificate is then issued listing each appliance with a pass or fail.

Responsibility for complying with the Fire Safety Order rests with the 'responsible person'. If you are the responsible person you will have to carry out a fire risk assessment which must focus on the safety in case of fire of all ‘relevant persons’. It should pay particular attention to those at special risk, such as disabled people and those with special needs, and must include consideration of any dangerous substances likely to be on the premises.
