PAT TESTING – WHAT IS IT?
Portable home appliance testing (PAT) is a security check of all electrical devices that has a plug, in compliance with all health and safety law.
It’s the obligation of the company owner to assure the electrical equipment they use is safe for usage. PAT testing your electrical appliancesis additionally a great control measure to enhance the risk assessment of your workplace because it indicates the business owner has adopted a proactive approach to health and safety in the workplace.
PAT testing needs to be completed by a professional, qualified and proficient person. Our PAT test incorporates a visual evaluation of the plug and the devices it feeds. This is achieved by opening the plug and examining the electrical wiring and the fuse whilst also evaluating the devices for burn or burn marks.
If the appliance has an earth it will be assessed through an special PAT test device as a class 1 product. Appliances with no earth are checked as a class 2. Leads, extension sockets and multi-sockets are tested separately.
The minute your PAT testing has been finished, you will get an equipment register of all the tested electrical appliances at your workplace coupled with the test results and a PAT test certificate.

CAN ANYONE PAT TEST?
The IEE code of practise 4th edition affirms that in order to carry out Portable Appliance Testing, the tester is required to be qualified. To become qualified the tester requires a combination of training, skills, know-how, expertise along with the capacity to apply everything safely and securely. This is achieved by completing the City & Guilds course 2377-22 In-Service Evaluation and Testing of Electrical devices level 3.
A number of organisations may decide to train somebody in-house. Having said that, this isn’t always fiscally practical. An extensive course is going to take 3 days to finish, then there is the fee for purchasing all of the equipment, adaptors and PAT test labels.
An unskilled PAT tester usually takes nearly 3 times longer to PAT test whilst they taking on a lot of appliances. This is exactly why a great deal of owners hire experienced and expert PAT testers to test all of their electrical appliances, reducing disruption to both operations and turn-over.
WHAT REQUIRES PAT TESTING?
This is not as complicated as it sounds. Fundamentally, any electrical appliance that has a plug and is planned to be plugged into a wall socket or generator must be PAT tested. This consists of items such as all I.T devices, kettles, hairdryers and radios. It consists of larger items such as refrigerators, photocopiers and vending machines.
All 110v volt devices most often seen on building sites have to be PAT tested too. Items that function off a battery, such as laptops and drills do not need to be PAT tested but the battery chargers must be.
To be PAT tested, the electrical appliance must be turned off to ensure that the plug can be opened and inspected. It is not always possible for some devices for instance computer system servers and CCTV devices. In such a case, you should get these items PAT tested within a shutdown or maintenance period.
