Why you need portable appliances tested
There are a number of reasons why appliances should be PAT tested on a regular basis, but the most important ones are:-
To comply with The Electricity at Work Regulations.
To comply with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations.
To minimise the risk of fire and injury caused by electrical appliances.
To satisfy your Insurance Company.
To comply with all Health & Safety requirements and ISO standards.
Quality Assurances also requires you to comply.
Also, one of the first things Fire Officers and Health & Safety Inspectors usually ask to see on any inspection visit is PAT testing records.
