Arbours Electrical PAT Testing Services
Often carried out as part of our routine electrical maintenance schedules, PAT testing is a necessary process in ensuring your business is safe and properly maintained.
There is no legal requirement for PAT testing however the Government however has put regulations in place which refer to the maintenance of electrical appliances and the most effective way to ensure that you comply with these regulations is through PAT testing.
The relevant regulations are...
Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974
The Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations of 1998
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations of 1999
Claims that PAT testing is required by law are simply not true.
However, the law does require employers, including the self-employed to ensure that all electrical equipment that they provide in their business is safe and properly maintained.
Therefore, although not a legal requirement in itself, PAT testing is an important part of your company’s health and safety requirements.
