In order to be qualified the tester needs to have a variety of training, ability, knowledge, expertise and the ability to apply everything safely and securely. This can be attained by accomplishing the City & & Guilds course 2377-22 In-Service Evaluation and Testing of Electrical devices level 3.
Some companies will train somebody in-house. Although, this is simply not always financially practical. An extensive course requires 3 days for you to complete, then there is the expense of purchasing all of the hardware, adaptors and PAT test labels.
An unskilled PAT tester will take nearly Three times longer to PAT test whilst they are undertaking a large number of appliances. This is exactly why lots of owners acquire the services of experienced and expert PAT testers to test all their electrical appliances, reducing disturbance to both operations and turnover.
WHAT REQUIRES PAT TESTING?
This is not as complex as it appears. Basically, any electrical appliance that has a plug and is planned to be plugged into a wall socket or generator must be PAT tested. For example items such as all I.T devices, kettles, blow dryers and radios. It includes larger items such as fridges, printers and vending machines.
All 110v volt devices typically found on building sites have to be PAT tested as well. Applicances that function off a battery, for instance laptops and drills do not have to be PAT tested but the battery chargers will have to be.
To be PAT tested, the electrical appliance must be switched 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 this situation, you should get these items PAT tested within a shutdown or maintenance period.

PAT TESTING – HOW OFTEN?
PAT TESTING – HOW OFTEN?
There is no certain regulation to determine how frequent PAT testing needs to be completed. For the reason that it’s down to the company owners risk assessment to evaluate how frequently PAT testing ought to be done to make certain that the work equipment they are using is fit for purpose.
The best solution is for the company owner to ascertain how many electrical appliances they’ve got, how frequently they are utilised and in what environment are they used in?
For instance, the possibility of injury from a immobile office photocopier is far less than a bench grinder on a factory workshop floor. A broad rule of thumb to take into account is the more times an item is moved, the more likely that it will require to be PAT tested regularly. Items that fail PAT testing the most is kettles. They are in consistent use and are constantly being moved around.
Lots of businesses usually pair their PAT testing along with the insurance and accreditation renewals and so get their PAT testing conducted on an annual basis, as a general rule of thumb.
PAT testing on building and construction sites must be undertaken every 12 weeks due to the nature of the continual use and and type of environment the equipment is being employed in.
