PAT Testing or Portable Appliance Testing is an important part of any health and safety policy.
The health and safety executive states that 25% of all reportable electrical accidents involve portable appliances. The Health and Safety at work act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances;
- Where appliances are supplied by landlords
- Where the landlord may use appliances in establishments such as flats, houses, shops etc
- Where appliances are supplied or hired by the landlord
- Where appliances are repaired or serviced by the landlord
Regular inspection and testing of electrical equipment is an important step towards satisfying a landlords legal duty of care to protect their tenants from harm in their home. In addition, many insurers view regular electrical testing as an essential condition of their insurance.
