What is PAT Testing?
Portable appliance testing – more commonly referred to as PAT testing – is an essential inspection that is carried out on portable electrical equipment at commercial premises in the UK. This can include everything from kettles and computers to printers and paper shredders.
This essential electrical safety testing involves visually checking the wiring of an appliance, to ensure that there is no fraying or other signs of degradation, thus ensuring its ongoing safe use. It can also involve the use of special PAT testing equipment to help the engineer carrying out the tests to see if there are any issues that need to be addressed.
