Portable Electrical Appliances are a major cause of fires both in the home and at work. A sobering fact:- Over 2,500 people are killed or injured as a result of electrical fires every year!

When people work with electrical appliances, legislation specifies that the appliance must be safe in order to prevent harm to workers. Many types of equipment require regular testing to ensure safety. The interval between tests depends upon the type of appliance and the environment it is used in.

Every item of portable equipment within your installation or used by your staff needs to undergo a testing regime which ensures that items such as computers (and their leads), hand appliances such as drills, grinders, mixers, hoovers, kettles, toasters microwaves, refrigerators and the like are in a safe and serviceable condition.

Portable Appliance Testing is an important part of any Health & Safety Policy.

-  Compliance with the very latest health and safety regulations.

-  Risk of fire and injury from portable appliances is minimised.

-  Compliance with ISO9000/1 and BS5750.

  1. - Satisfy the requirements of your Insurers


But probably the most compelling reason to have your equipment checked is to consider the likely consequences if you do not have the testing done and one of your staff were to be killed or injured!

What Does PAT Testing Involve?

Each Appliance will be inspected for:

  1. Bullet Plugs - checked for compliance, damage and correct secure fitting

  2. Bullet Fuses - ensure correct rating fitted

  3. Bullet Cables - checked for wear and tear; heat damage; cuts and abrasions

  4. Bullet Appliance Housing - checked for compliance and damage: cracks, dents and corrosion

  5. Bullet Earth Bond - ensure earthing of appliance meets acceptable standards

  6. Bullet Insulation - Indicates if the insulation protecting the conductors is broken

  7. Bullet Load Test - Checks if the equipment and fuses operate correctly

  8. Bullet Earth Leakage - Measures the leakage current to the earth while the appliance is operating

  9. Bullet Function - to ensure appliance is fully operational
