-PAT TESTING/ Portable Appliance Testing
Pat testing or portable appliance testing is an important part of any health & safety policy.
The Health & Safety Executive states that 25% of reported electrical accidents involved portable appliances.
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. This in effect requires the implementation of a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing.
The government in their latest Fire Statistics Bulletin, report that 5,391 fires were caused by "other electrical appliances" in 2006. Of these fires, 907 caused some kind of casualty and 12 of these were fatal!
