The facts prove that portable appliances account for roughly 1 in 4 electrical accidents so regular checks are of critical importance.

Electricity at Work regulations places a legal responsibility on employees and employers to comply with the legislation. Employers must take practical steps to ensure that no danger ensues from:

~ employees using portable appliances

~ the public using portable appliances (eg in hotels, hospitals)

~ situations where appliances are hired, supplied, serviced or repaired

Portable Appliance Testing involves complex procedures including multiple examinations with multiple variables. PAT testing should only ever be undertaken by a fully qualifies Electrician using recommended testing equipment.
