Under strict PAT policies, many devices require PAT testing at routine intervals. The actual time in between tests depends upon the kind of home appliance and the environment in which it is normally utilised: an annual test is the typical requirement.
Portable Appliance Testing (or PAT) is the process of regularly inspecting electrical devices for security, and should be performed by a certified electrical contractor. In the UK, PAT testing has ended up being an important part of Health and Security requirements for property owners and employers, and all portable electrical home appliances must be accredited as safe. PAT testing is developed for the security of workers and renters; portable appliances can include microwaves, TVs, kettles and practically anything else that can be linked to the mains.
Is PAT testing really that important?
As a landlord or employer it is your responsibility to make sure that your premises are safe. If somebody has an accident and you have not taken necessary safety measures, you will be liable.
Would it not be cheaper for me to have an employee carry out the PAT testing?
Although many people think that this is the case, you must factor in the cost of training, as PAT testing is very important and must be carried out competently and to a professional standard. As well as this, PAT equipment and software must be purchased, which could see your costs spiralling up considerably higher than simply calling Millers.
