Under stringent PAT guidelines, many appliances need PAT screening at regular intervals. The real time in between tests depends on the kind of home appliance and the environment in which it is normally used: an annual test is the common requirement.
Portable Appliance Testing (or PAT) is the procedure of regularly inspecting electrical devices for safety, and should be brought out by a qualified electrical expert. In the UK, PAT testing has become a vital part of Health and wellness requirements for landlords and employers, and all portable electrical home appliances must be accredited as safe. PAT testing is created for the security of workers and renters; portable appliances can include microwaves, TVs, kettles and almost 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.
