the current health and Safety regulations all businesses must make
sure that there electrical appliances are PAT tested. But what are
the regulations and how do you find a reliable PAT testing company?
Within the UK, The Health and Safety Executive, and in particular
the Electricity at Work Regulations, 1989, state that in order to
be certain they incur no risk of injury to those persons using them
and that they are totally safe, all electrical appliances should
be tested on a regular basis. This is a vital part of any health
and safety policy as far as the workplace is concerned and is known
at PAT Testing or Portable Appliance Testing.
More than 25% of reported accidents occurring at work involve electrical
appliances of a portable nature and figures indicate that due to
incorrect maintenance in situations where PAT testing has not been
carried out, injuries are regularly sustained to those using the
electrical equipment concerned. Electrical appliances which are
either not kept in good condition or are used for purposes other
than those intended and more often than not in unsuitable conditions,
frequently lead to incidents of fire.
