Put Safety First

 

Reasons For PAT Testing

Minimise risk of death or injury
 

To yourself, your employees and visitors to your premises

Risk of fire through faulty electrical appliances

Legal requirements - Health & Safety regulations
Insurance requirements
 

Many insurance companies require PAT Testing. Your insurance policy may be invalidated if you have not complied with PAT requirements so any claims made on the policy could be refused

 

What Is PAT Testing & Do We Need To PAT Test?

PAT testing or Portable Appliance Testing is a specialised process of testing all portable, electrical appliances to ensure they are safe. Typically it is a routine procedure for people who work with electrical appliances, or have them in a working environment.
Pat testing or portable appliance testing is an important part of any health & safety policy. The Health & Safety Executive states that around 1,000 electrical accidents are reported each year and about 25 people die of their injuries.
The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment.
For further information please see the page on Legal Requirements For PAT Testing

How Do We Carry Out PAT Testing?

O&C will complete a full PAT test in your office, warehouse, retail unit or work space. We also regularly complete PAT testing and safety inspections in schools, hospitals and shops. PAT tests of homes can also be carried out for landlords and homeowners who want peace of mind.
Without passing the initial visual inspection, no appliance can be passed as safe. The visual inspection process is:
  1. check plug casings for damage

  2. removal of the plug cover
  3. check correct fuse rating
  4. check correct wiring
  5. check terminals and connections are secure
  6. check there is minimal bare wire
  7. check for signs of overheating discoloration
  8. check for misuse/ingress of liquids or foreign matter
  9. check cable/cord grips
 
The checks and inspections outlined above, should, if carried out properly, reveal most potentially dangerous faults, however not all faults are detectable by carrying out just a visual inspection of the appliance:
  1. loss of earth integrity (earth test)
Electrical Appliances such as Kettles are just some of the Portable Appliances that need to be PAT Tested

Kettle Testing

  2. Deterioration of insulation integrity (insulation test)
  3. Other associated tests as required/necessary (earth leakage, load testing)
 
Therefore the relevant tests associated with the class of the appliance should then be performed, which will require the use of PAT Testing equipment and appropriate knowledge and training.
It is also necessary to carry out testing at the frequency required by regulations, to label appliances with test results and the schedule for re-testing, and to document findings and prepare reports.
