How often do you need to have a PAT test?

What is tested in a PAT test?
We carry out a number of inspections and tests:
A visual examination – We look for any damage to the appliance that may cause it to be faulty. This is an incredibly important part of PAT testing as most fails happen at this stage.
An in-depth inspection and test – This helps us pick up on any damage that may not be immediately visible. It includes earth continuity, lead polarity and insulation resistance checks.
Once we’ve completed these tests, we conduct a function check to ensure that everything works as it should do.
What needs to be PAT tested?
Broadly speaking, any appliance that has a plug needs to be PAT tested. This includes:
- Stationary equipment
- IT equipment
- Moveable equipment
- Portable equipment
- Hand-held equipment
- Fixed equipment
