PAT Testing from £75!
PAT Testing; or otherwise known as portable appliance testing; is the electrical safety testing of portable appliances. PAT testing is carried out on all portable; and some fixed appliances on a property. These include tenanted; commercial and industrial premises. PAT testing is an important part of any health and safety procedure. It should be taken very seriously within the workplace.
This in effect; requires you to implement a regular program of maintenance. Which includes inspection and testing of appliances. The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974); places such an obligation in the following circumstances:
- Where appliances are used by employees.
- Where the public may use appliances in certain places; These include: hospitals; schools; hotels; and shops.
- Where appliances are supplied or hired.
- Where appliances are repaired or serviced.
All portable appliances; will have a annual re-test date on them. This is to ensure that they are always safe. For you; your employees and tenants..
Integrated portable appliances; where the plug point is not accessable. will usually require a earth test and a visual inspection; as these are not always able to be tested.
PAT Testing can be carried out at various premises; Please see below;
- Landlords Properties.
- Tenanted Properties.
- Commercial Premises.
- Industrial Premises.
- Within the workplace; where electrical appliances are supplied.
PAT Testing is currently not considered a legal requirement. Although there is plenty of talk that this may change. The electricity at works act; “explains that maintenance and regular testing”of portable equipment. This act is also backed up by the health and safety at work act 1974. Here it firmly places the duty of care upon both the employer and employee. Its to ensure safety of all persons using appliances on a work premises. Keeping records and providing certification of portable appliances is important. Its also a great way of proving health and safety; reliving the company of responsibility in some cases should a accident arise.
It should be noted that a PAT Test is required with most councils. When a private landlord is renting a furnished property. This is also becoming the case; with more insurance companies: as they look to make sure; most properties they are insuring are safe.
