What is portable appliance testing(PAT)?
Portable appliance testing (PAT test) means examining electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe. Most electrical safety defects are visible by visual examination. PAT testing is the only way to discover some types of defects. Therefore, an easy-to-learn user checks that a short checklist will help. It is an important and beneficial part of any electrical maintenance plan.
Do I Need to examine my electrical appliances regularly?
The frequency with which equipment needs inspection for risks is defined by the type of hardware and the environment where it’s used. Likewise a power tool used on a building site needs inspection more frequently rather than a bulb in a hotel room.

Can I carry out PAT tests myself?
First thing to remember is that a qualified individual needs to perform the testing. In a workplace which is a low-risk environment, however, a competent member of staff can conduct visual inspections.
Meanwhile, when doing combined inspection and testing, a higher degree of expertise and experience is required. The individual will need testing equipment accordingly and the knowledge to use it.
Why do we Need PAT (Portable Appliance Testing)?
We need it, because it is essential to avoid danger. Hence the legislation only requires employers to guarantee that their electrical equipment is maintained correctly.
