PAT Testing – Yorkshire


What Is PAT Testing?

PAT also known as Portable Appliance testing is a way of ensuring that all electrical appliances are well maintained and are not going to be of risk to employees.

Portable Appliance Testing, although not a legal requirement, ensures the safety of those who use the equipment. Many insurance companies will require that all electrical appliances are tested frequently to reduce the risk of accidents due to faulty appliances.

In line with The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 & The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974,  Employers must protect the safety of all employees including the use of electrical equipment (Electricity at Work Regulations Section 4) “(2) As may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger.”

All appliances tested will be issued with a sticker showing whether it has “Passed” or “Failed” along with a retest date. If any appliances do fail the PAT then the employer is notified so that it can be dealt with in order to prevent any accidents in the workplace.
