What is Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)?
Portable appliance testing is a legal requirement for all businesses, large and small. Portable Appliance Testing is a process by which electrical appliances are routinely checked to see whether they are safe. The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances:
1. Where appliances are used by employees.
2. Where the public may use appliances in establishments such as hospitals, schools, hotels, shops, housing tenants, etc.
3. Where appliances are supplied or hired.
4. Where appliances are repaired or serviced.
According to the Health and Safety Executive, there are approximately 1,000 major electrical related injuries reported each year. These can involve burns and electrical shocks and of these injuries around 30 of them are fatal.
A proper program of Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is essential to help ensure that electrical related accidents are prevented.
Don't take the risk that your Insurance Company will fail to cover you if you have faulty electrical appliances.
What should be maintained?
All electrical equipment and electrical systems should be maintained on a regular basis (usually every 12 months). Each and every piece of electrical equipment must be examined and tested according to the IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) Code of Practice recommendations by a competent electrical engineer. This includes equipment both permanently connected and equipment connected by a plug to a socket outlet. 25% of accidents reported to the Health and Safety Executive are caused by faulty portable appliances, from kettles to photocopiers to overloaded extension cables and reels.
