Why test portable appliances?
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 dictates that all businesses are obliged to keep all work equipment in a good state of repair and in efficient working order. For this reason, annual PAT testing is the best way to ensure that your business meets its legal obligations whilst ensuring safety for your workforce and compliance with any insurance conditions.
When should portable appliances be tested?
It is generally accepted that annual PAT testing is best suited to meeting your Health & Safety obligations.
