What Is PAT Testing & How often is PAT required?
Portable appliance testing (PAT) is a periodic examination of electrical equipment and appliances ensuring they are safe for people to use. The frequency of these tests relies on a number of factors including;
- The type of equipment
- What the equipment is used for
- How frequently the equipment is used
- Who uses the equipment
- The environment the equipment is being used in
- Previous PAT test results
- The age of the equipment
- Recommendations provided by the manufacturer
Calculating PAT frequency for different environments
Employers have the responsibility of determining when electrical equipment should be PAT tested to ensure the safety of employees or the general public. Our fully trained team of electricians are experienced in all areas of PAT testing and are happy to discuss what precautions you need to take and how often your PAT testing in Newcastle needs to be reviewed.
PAT Testing kits can be bought, but to make sure the inspection is carried out correctly and ensure complete peace of mind, Pat testing should be carried out by a fully qualified electrician. PAT testing is affordable and cutting corners or not taking responsibility for your electrical appliances can have severe consequences.
