PAT Testing London
PAT or Portable Appliance Testing is a UK policy/safety regulation which comprises safety checks/tests on all electrical appliances.
A qualified PAT specialist will perform a relatively quick and easy test and then confirm if the appliance has passed or failed testing.
Once each appliance completes the test, they will be labelled with a dated sticker.
Upon completion a Portable Appliance Test Certificate will be issued.
Why do I need PAT Testing?
Although not a legal requirement in the home it is highly recommended.
The law does require however that employers, including the self-employed, ensure that all electrical equipment that they provide within their business is safe and properly maintained.
Work Regulations Act 1989
The Electricity at Work Regulations Act 1989 requires that all electrical equipment which has the potential to cause injury or harm is maintained in a safe condition, but these regulations do not actually specify how often PAT testing should be carried out. As with most Health and Safety matters it’s down to individual risk assessments. For example an electric drill on building site might need PAT testing more often than a light bulb in the home.
Quite strangely The Regulations also do not specify that PAT Testing need to be carried out by a fully qualified electrician. The PAT testing regulations do however point to the following:
- Correct equipment must be used to do PAT Testing
The individual carrying out the testing needs to be able to use the PAT Testing equipment properly
The individual carrying out the testing needs to be able to understand and interpret the test results
Therefore: To be safe and secure with your PAT testing you are highly advised to use Qualified Electricians.
