What Is Portable Appliance Testing?

In a nutshell, this refers to the process whereby portable electrical appliances are thoroughly inspected and tested in order to ensure they are safe to be used in accordance with their purpose. As it is often difficult or even impossible to assess the safety of any given appliance by visual inspection alone, professional PAT Testing is mandatory for investigating hidden risks and dangers. Qualified PAT Testing teams use a variety of specialist skills and equipment to check every essential element of each portable appliance to ensure its full fitness.


PAT Testing and UK Law

While PAT Testing is in its own right not a legal recommendation, UK law is extremely specific when it comes to requiring all businesses and organisations across the board to monitor and control electrical appliance safety. As such, PAT Testing has become the gold standard and the only real UK standard for electrical appliance testing, therefore is to a large extent considered a business prerequisite.


Frequency of PAT Testing

Exactly how often PAT Testing should be carried out differs in accordance with the nature of the business, the electrical appliances in question and how often they are used. As such, it is the responsibility of the business owner or the manager of the premises to use common sense and instinct when it comes to determining how often their own appliances should be inspected and tested. The DG Scott Electrical Services LTD PAT Testing team would be delighted to advise you further.
