What is PAT Testing?

PAT Testing stands for Portable Appliance Testing but it is a slightly misleading name as all electrical appliances require frequent inspection and testing not just portable items. PAT Testing involes a visual inspection and depending on the item various electrical tests using a PAT Tester. When carrying out PAT Testing in Hampshire the checks we do will normally depend on the particular item but will normally involve:

 

Visual Inspection

  • opening plugs and checking polarity and terminations.

  • checking fuses for correct rating.

  • checking flexes and casing for damage.

 

Electrical Testing

  • earth continuity

  • insulation resistance

  • polarity

  • leakage

Why do I need PAT Testing?

PAT Testing is a way of periodically checking that electrical items are safe for continued use. As there are a high number of fires and injuries caused every year by faulty electrical appliances it makes sense that periodic PAT Testing will keep this number to a minimum. Every year whilst carrying out PAT Testing in Hampshire we find hundreds of dangerous, faulty and counterfeit items that pose the risk of fire or injury.

 

  • Electrical items are one of the risk factors to be considered when carrying out fire risk assessments. Businesses it is highly likely that PAT Testing will be mentioned in your fire risk assessment. Your insurance company may also stipulate that you need to have PAT Testing carried out.  

 

  • If you are a Landlord the electrical appliances that you supply as part of the tenancy must be safe at the start of the tenancy and checked for safety periodically throughout.

 

  • If you are a sole trader like a DJ and carry out services using electrical items at other business locations like hotels or community halls you may be asked to provide a PAT Testing certificate before attending.
