PAT Testing is an important inspection and testing programme to ensure that users of portable appliances are safely protected from the dangers of electric shock and potential fire hazards.

Think of it like insurance for duty holders who can prove by the way of comprehensive testing records that they took all reasonable and practicable steps to prevent an electrical accident occurring, thus proving a care of duty.

The following legislations have statutory provisions relevant to electrical maintenance and affect every Business, Organisation and Landlord within the UK.

■ The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (H&SWA)
■ The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
■ The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998
