PAT TESTING – WHAT IS IT?
Portable home appliance testing (PAT) is a safety examination of all electrical appliances with a plug, in compliance with all health and safety law.
It is the liability of the company owner to ensure the electrical equipment they use is safe for utilisation. PAT testing your electrical appliancesis also an excellent control measure to add to your workplace fire risk assessment mainly because it shows the business owner has taken a positive approach to health and safety in the workplace.
PAT testing has to be carried out by a knowledgeable, qualified and proficient individual. Our PAT test will include a visual evaluation of the plug and the devices it feeds. This is achieved by opening up the plug and examining the electrical wiring and the fuse whilst also investigating the devices for burn or burn marks.
If the appliance has an earth it will be evaluated through an special PAT test device as a class 1 product. Appliances lacking any earth are tested as a class 2. Leads, extension sockets and multi-sockets are tested independently.
The minute your PAT testing has been carried out, you will receive 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 5th edition expresses that in order to perform Portable Appliance Testing, the tester should be qualified. In order to be qualified the tester will need a mixture of training, ability, knowledge, practical experience and the ability to apply everything securely and safely. This can be accomplished by completing the City & & Guilds course 2377-22 In-Service Evaluation and Testing of Electrical devices level 3.
Some businesses will train somebody in-house. Although, this is simply not always financially sensible. An entire course will require three days for you to complete, then there is the fee for purchasing all the tools, adaptors and PAT test labels.
An unskilled PAT tester usually takes nearly Three times longer to PAT test whilst they taking on a large number of appliances. For this reason most company directors pay experienced and expert PAT testers to test all of their electrical appliances, reducing disruption to both operations and revenues.
WHAT APPLIANCES DO WE NEED TO HAVE PAT TESTED?
This is not as complex as it seems. Basically, any electrical appliance with a plug and is planned to be plugged into a wall socket or generator needs to be PAT tested. This consists of items such as all I.T devices, kettles, hairdryers and radios. It consists of larger items such as freezers, printers and vending machines.
All 110v volt devices typically found on building sites have to be PAT tested too. Applicances that run off a battery, for example laptops and drills don’t have to be PAT tested but the battery chargers must be.
To be PAT tested, the electrical appliance will have to be turned off so the plug can be opened and examined. This isn’t always practical for some devices such as computer system servers and CCTV devices. In this situation, you should get these items PAT tested within a shutdown or maintenance period.
What our customers are saying
PAT TESTING – HOW OFTEN?
There isn’t any particular legislation to determine how frequent PAT testing needs to be completed. This is because it is down to the company owners risk assessment to assess how often PAT testing ought to be done to make certain that the work equipment they are supplying is fit for purpose.
The best answer is for the company owner to find out how many electrical items they’ve got, the frequency of which they are used and in what conditions are they used in?
For example, the chance of harm from a immobile office photocopier is way less than a bench grinder on a factory workshop floor. A typical guideline to consider is the more times an item is moved, the more likely that it will need to be PAT tested regularly. Appliances that fail PAT testing the most is kettles. They’re in frequent use and are always being moved around.
A great deal of companies usually pair their PAT testing along with the insurance and accreditation renewals and so get their PAT testing conducted every year, as a general rule of thumb.
PAT testing on building and construction sites ought to be undertaken every 12 weeks a result of the nature of the constant use and and type of environment the equipment is being employed in.
PAT testing and its frequency is determined by a number of factors including:
- Type of equipment
- It’s classification
- It’s frequency of use
- If it is often moved from one place to another
We will specify your distinct requirements. We abide by and strictly follow the IET Code of practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment 5th Edition guidelines to help determine this. For more information regarding legal requirements, please click here.
