Portable appliance testing (PAT) is also called electrical safety testing. The word portable can be misleading because PAT testing also covers fixed appliances like cookers, ovens, and hobs. PAT testing should be considered a necessity for all appliances in our homes, commercial and industrial properties to help ensure our safety.
You do not have to look far to get someone to carry out your PAT testing. Electric Works London is your go-to company. Our PAT testers are NICEIC, and NAPIT registered, skilled and experienced to handle whether the device you have.
PAT testing is a part of the health and safety procedures that every building should undergo. The health and safety work act of 1974 requires that a maintenance program should be carried out on every building. The program includes an obligatory inspection and testing of appliances like:
Your appliances should have an annual reset date on them after every PAT testing to help you know when next to carry out a PAT testing. Your appliances must be inspected and tested in line with health and safety procedures.

PAT testing is not a legal requirement, but there is a high possibility that this will change soon.
However, according to the Electricity at Works Act, maintenance and regular testing of portable appliances is very important. The Electricity at Works Act is also backed up by the Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974 — these two documents impose a duty on the supplier of portable appliances to ensure that both employee and employer are safe at work and home too.
It is essential always to keep your electrical certificates and records safe to show that you have been carrying out regular testing and maintenance on your portable appliances — this helps you sort out any incident that may arise under your duty of care.
At Electric Works London, we keep records of PAT testing carried out and also issued certificates on any property we inspect. Some companies require PAT testing certificates to conclude an insurance policy on a property; this is to assure the insurance companies that the property to be insured is safe.
