What is PAT Testing?
PAT testing is a series of inspections and electrical tests on portable appliances. The Health and Safety Act (1974) places the obligation for testing where:
An appliance is used by an employee.
The public may use an appliance.
An appliance is supplied or hired.
An appliance is repaired or serviced.
The frequency of testing depends on the type of equipment, usage and environment, normally appliances would be tested annually but schools for example may be tested more often, as there is a higher risk.
