PAT Testing Explained Video

PAT Testing stands for portable appliance testing and it is the method you use to check whether a portable electrical appliance is safe to use. The expression ‘PAT Testing' covers everything from the visual inspection of the appliance to the specific electrical test carried out by the PB500 PAT testing machine.

Health & Safety regulations require that you check your portable electrical appliances on a regular basis and maintain them to ensure they are safe to use by anybody on your premises.

The Health and Safety Executive request that you inspect electrical appliances regularly. Some insurers state that electrical appliances must be ‘checked' periodically. Or that appliance must be checked to be in good repair.


In the case of a claim you may need to prove that you have had a program of maintaining appliances and carrying out appropriate checks. Such requirements can make up any part of building, contents or public liability insurance cover. Make sure you check your policy. more
