PAT Testing is a way of maintaining electrical appliances and it
- Reduces the risk of fires
- Prevents users getting an electric shock
- Is a legal requirement in the workplace
Electrical appliances start off perfectly safe, but like with most things with use can deteriorate to an extent where there is risk of an electric shock or a fire. Portable Appliances Testing (or PAT to use the popular acronym) ensures that electrical appliances continue to be safe to use.
An example would be a vacuum cleaner would be heavily use in a school or hotel. In time it isn’t likely that the cable may start pulling out of the plug or the wire would start to fray. If we don’t have a system of maintenance where these types of faults are not picked up and put right there is every possibility that someone would get an electric shock.
An example of where there would be a risk of fire is where a blown fuse has been replaced with one of the wrong value or even worse, a piece of tin-foil. As shocking as this may seem, there are many examples where this is done to save time. The intention is to replace the tin-foil with the correct fuse at a later stage but somehow Thisbe never gets done. If the appliance we’re to develop a fault then the tinfoil will not blow and there is a risk of a fire breaking out.
Business Insurance Policies
Increasingly, insurance companies are stipulating Portable appliance Testing as a necessary condition of insurance on most businesses. If there was a fire and the management in a company could not show that they regular PAT Testing has been carried out, some insurance companies could take this into account when arriving at settlement figures.
In addition to the above reasons, there are a number of Health & Safety regulations that are in place to protect employees from danger. These imply directly or indirectly that employers have to ensure that electrical appliances do not cause any danger to staff.
The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974
This places a duty of care on employers to ensure the safety of everyone at work, including the self-employed.
The Management of Health & Safety at Work Act Regulations 1999
These regulations require the employer to assess the risks to the health & safety of employees, visitors, customers and sub-contractors.
The Provisions & Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998
Employers shall ensure that work equipment is so constructed that it is suitable for the use to which it is put.
Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
This regulation is relevant to the use of electrical appliances at work. They require electrical systems to be maintained so that they remain safe during use. This refers to everything electrical in the workplace, from the wiring in the building to electrical appliances.
