When would you need PAT testing?
The Electricity at Work Regulations state that employers, employees and self-employed people have a legal responsibility to take steps to make sure that portable appliances are safe to use and that no one is harmed by using them. One way that workplaces aim to follow these regulations is to get their appliances Portable Appliance (PAT) Tested.
A qualified electrician will be able to advise you on the extent of inspection and testing required on all the appliances you have on your premises. Most appliances should be tested every year.
