Do my appliances need PAT testing?

Because the use of portable electrical appliances of any kind places a requirement on you to ensure it’s safe to use, almost every business will have PAT Testing obligations.

PAT Testing is an important legal requirement, and without up to date certification your insurance could be invalid.

Here are a few examples of everyday appliances that need PAT Testing:

  • Computers
  • Kettles
  • Handheld machinery
  • Bedside lights in hotels
  • Checkouts in shops, along with many, many more

If you’re unsure which items in your business require PAT Testing, contact us today for free advice and to ensure your business is safe and compliant.

We’ve answered some common PAT Testing questions below. If you’ve got any questions specific to your business, simply call our service team who will be happy to help.

What is PAT Testing?

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing) involves a series of electrical and visual inspections on all portable appliances within a place of work. These tests determine whether or not the electrical appliances are safe for use by staff and/or customers.

What is a portable electrical appliance?

A portable electrical appliance is any electrical appliance that’s either moved when in use, or can easily be moved from one place to another – a kettle, toaster, power tool, or vacuum cleaner, for example. Larger items, such as printers and photocopiers, are also included.

What happens if an item fails PAT Testing?

If an item fails its PAT Test it means it’s unsafe for use in its current condition. The next steps will depend on the reason the item failed its PAT Test. Small repairs – such as fuse replacements or loose wiring – can be corrected on the spot, but larger repairs would require further action.

Is PAT Testing disruptive?

No, PAT Testing can be performed with minimal disruption. For example, in the case of an office environment, each PC would need to be shut down for between 5 and 10 minutes in turn, for each test to be carried out – the perfect opportunity to get a brew round in! Server rooms, however, would need to be shut down to be tested, which is when our out of hours service comes in useful.

If you would prefer PAT Testing to be performed outside of your business’ normal operating hours, we provide an out of hours service at no extra cost from 5pm Monday to Friday or any time during Saturday.

How can we be sure every appliance has been tested?

We’ve built procedures into our testing process that ensures a full PAT Test is carried out on all equipment, and that the equipment is unplugged and checked correctly.

Your portable appliances will also be tagged and colour coded for easy identification.
