Do I need a PAT testing service? How often should I test electrical appliances?
The frequency with which you should test your appliances largely depends on circumstances. For example, a microwave in use every day, or power tools used at busy sites, may need to be tested more often than an appliance that spends most of its time in a cupboard.
It is imperative that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition. Therefor if you are a business owner, landlord, equipment user, or manager of a premisis it is recommended that you should have PAT testing done on a regular basis.
What is PAT testing?
PAT stands for ‘Portable Appliance Testing’, and refers to exactly that – the testing of electrical appliances and equipment. The aim is to make sure that, once some time has passed since it was new, the appliance is still safe to use.
