Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing)
The Health and Safety Executive reports that approximately 1000 accidents per year within the workplace involve electric shock or burns, around 30 of these are fatal. They also state that 25% of all reportable electrical accidents involve portable appliances, Portable appliance testing or PAT testing as it's more commonly know is a crucial solution to this problem.
By virtue of its nature in portability, all portable appliances are subject to becoming damaged during their use, damage which could result in the equipment becoming dangerous to the user. Therefore the Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment.
- Regulation 4(2) of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 states:"As may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable, such danger."
- Regulation 5 of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 states:"Every employer shall ensure that work equipment is maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair."
