Portable Appliance Testing (P.A.T Testing)

Portable Appliance Testing (P.A.T Testing) At AK Fire we offer a portable appliance testing service (commonly known as PAT Testing) PAT Testing is a process in the UK, by which electrical appliances are routinely checked for safety. PAT Testing should be carried out on an annual basis on all electrical items.

Why do I need my Portable Appliances tested?
• To ensure they are safe to use.
• To meet Health & Safety requirements.
• To keep your Insurance valid.
• To make sure your company meets the requirements of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations.

There is often confusion surrounding PAT Testing as to whether or not it is a legal requirement. The Health and Safety Executive states that 25% of all reportable electrical accidents involve portable appliances. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 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. This in effect requires the implementation of a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing.
