The law simply requires business owners to ensure that their electrical equipment is maintained in order to prevent danger.

What is PAT Testing?

Portable Appliance Testing or PAT Testing is the process of checking electrical appliances through a series of visual inspections and electronic tests to ensure it is safe for use. Most defects can be found physically or visually but others can only be found with rigorous testing. Electrical flaws, damaged cables, and damaged plugs are some examples of Portable Appliance Testing results.

Who needs PAT Testing?

Landlords, Employers, and institutions have a statutory responsibility to ensure all electrical appliances used by tenants, guests, or employees are safe. It is vital to have formal inspections of appliances at regular intervals, as day-to-day use of portable electrical appliances naturally causes wear and tear to leads and plugs. If defects cannot be detected this could result in an electric shock or even worse – fire.
