PAT Testing is relevant for businesses due to the Electricity at Work Regulations (1989) which require any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury to be maintained in a safe condition.
- PAT Testing is an essential part of complying with these regulations. It allows you to keep your workforce safe. PAT testing cost need not be high – Infinity Energy has a team of reasonably-priced, qualified engineers.
Why are visual inspections not enough?
- Many electrical safety defects can be identified by visual examination, but some types of defect can only be found by testing. That’s where Portal Appliance Testing helps.
How often is PAT Testing necessary?
- The frequency of inspection / testing depends on the type of equipment you have and where that equipment is used. Good PAT testing companies will work out a sensible testing plan with you that reflects the type of work you carry out on site.
