Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)

 

What is a Portable Appliance?


It is a moveable appliance which connects to a power supply by a plug and socket.

What are your responsibilities?


The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers to take practical steps to ensure no danger results from the use of any electrical appliances. This requires a programme of regular electrical maintenance, inspection and testing.
Leading electrical associations recommend that portable appliances are tested on an annual basis, to minimise the risk of accident and fire.
