PAT Testing Services
PAT testing (Portable Appliance Testing) is the examination of portable electrical equipment and devices which contain a plug to ensure they are safe to use. A lot of the time, safety defects are visual and can be spotted easily. However, sometimes this is not the case and faults can only be found by testing the equipment.
If electrical appliance testing is not carried out, the defect could then cause danger to the individual using the equipment, or even the whole building should it start a fire.
Prevent Electrical Accidents at Work
The level of inspection and testing required depends on the nature of the appliance and how likely it is to become faulty. The environment in which an appliance is used can also have an effect on the efficiency of the device. The requirement for a PAT test on a portable appliance is dependent on the guidelines provided by the insurer.
