P.A.T. Testing or Portable Appliance Testing Is an Important Part of Any Health & Safety Policy.

This Document Is Intended As a Guide to Both the Legal Implications and to the Technical Requirements.

The Health & Safety Executive States That 25% of All Reportable Electrical Accidents Involve Portable Appliances.

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 Reasonable Practical Steps to Ensure That No Danger Results from the Use of Such Equipment.

This in Effect Requires the Implementation of a Regular Program of Maintenance, Inspection and Testing.

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 Places Such As Hospitals, Schools, Hotels, Shops Etc.
  3. Where Appliances Are Supplied or Hired
  4. Where Appliances Are Repaired or Serviced.

The Level of Inspection and Testing Required Is Dependant Upon the Risk of the Appliance Becoming Faulty, Which in Turn Is Dependant on the Type of Appliance, the Nature of Its Use and the Environment It Is Used in .

The Institution of Electrical Engineers Publish the "Code of Practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment" (Isbn : 0-85296-776-4) . This Guide Forms the Basis for Portable Appliance Testing in the Uk.
