PAT testing

An influx of cheap electrical products and overloaded sockets is a major cause of office fires and will invalidate your insurance

Portable Appliances need testingHelp and Safety at Work Ltd offers a comprehensive on-site testing service in accordance with Electricity Regulations 1989 to help avoid such accidents.

Portable Appliance Testing includes all electrically operated items such as computers, printers, photocopiers, kettles, extension leads and vacuum cleaners and is crucial to a company’s Health & Safety policies.

Portable appliance testing (PAT) is the term used to describe the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. Most electrical safety defects can be found by visual examination but some types of defect can only be found by testing. However, it is essential to understand that visual examination is an essential part of the process because some types of electrical safety defect can’t be detected by testing alone.

A relatively brief user check (based upon simple training and perhaps assisted by the use of a brief checklist) can be a very useful part of any electrical maintenance regime. However, more formal visual inspection and testing by a competent person may also be required at appropriate intervals, depending upon the type of equipment and the environment in which it is used.
