What is the testing procedure?
When carrying out Portable Appliance Testing, we will perform a number of tests on each appliance such as:
A certificate is then produced indicating the results of the individual tests. Each item of electrical equipment is given an individual number and identified with a sticker. This will ensure that the item can be tracked and provides a clear indication of its pass/fail status.
- Full visual inspection
- Insulation test
- Earth continuity test
- Earth leakage test
What is a portable appliance?
A portable appliance is any piece of electrical equipment that can be moved from area to area and reconnected to the supply via a plug and socket system.
Why do we need PAT testing?
The most important reasons for carrying out Portable Appliance Testing are:
- To comply with the electricity at work regulations
- Risk of fire and injury due to faulty electrical equipment is minimised
