In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment or PAT testing, as it’s more commonly referred, is a way of making sure that your electrical equipment is fundamentally safe, whilst fulfilling your legal obligations under the electricity at work act 1989.
As a business you are legally obliged to make sure your equipment is in a suitable safe working order and is fit for purpose in the environment it is to be used.
Although there is no legal requirement as such, to carry out PAT testing, you do have to prove that you maintain your electrical equipment. PAT testing is how companies demonstrate due diligence in this respect.
In addition, failure to demonstrate due diligence with regards to the maintenance of electrical equipment can invalidate certain insurance policies and leave a company open to liability. Therefore PAT testing becomes an essential service.
