Portable Appliance Testing

PAT testing is carried out to make sure all your electrical equipment which is “portable” is safe for using. Any competent individual can carry out PAT testing according to current legislation using a PAT instrument or tester. Only someone who is deemed competent should be carrying out any Portable Appliance test.

Electrical testing for portable appliances

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 requires that any electrical equipment that could cause injury is maintained in a safe condition. A visual inspection in a low risk environment could be carried out by a competent person. However combined inspection and testing requires a greater level of knowledge and experience.
