Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
There is currently no strict legal requirement for PAT testing.
The Government however has put regulations into place that pertain to the maintenance of electrical appliances and the most effective way to ensure that these regulations are met is through PAT (portable appliance testing).
The UK Health and Safety Executive along with insurance companies will expect you to perform PAT to ensure that you are compliant with certain regulations including:
Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974
The Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations of 1998
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations of 1999
Not complying with the above-mentioned regulations can result in fines up to £5,000 and/or six months imprisonment.
Fines have been seen to go as high as £20,000 and offences heard in the Crown Court have carried sentences of more than two years imprisonment in additional to unlimited financial penalties.
So even though PAT itself is not legally required, it simply helps you to protect yourself by ensuring that you are complying with these regulations.
Claims that PAT is required by law and that the client is breaking the law by not having it done are simply not true.
The law does require however that employers, including self-employed, ensure that all electrical equipment that they provide in their business is safe and properly maintained.
This means that PAT is a critical part of your company’s health and safety and should be considered part of a solution to your safety concerns.
PAT provides the most effective way to identify defects that can come with use. Faults in electrical equipment pose a potential hazard, particularly if they are not repaired readily.
