Our Simple Seven-Step Process

  1. Visual Inspection: A thorough visual inspection of each electrical appliance is conducted to check for any visible damage, defects, loose connections, or signs of wear and tear.
  2. Earth Continuity Testing: Our electrician will measure the electrical continuity between the earth connection and exposed conductive parts of the appliance to ensure a secure earth connection.
  3. Insulation Resistance Testing: Using the latest PAT testing equipment, our electrician will carry out insulation resistance testing to measure the resistance between the live, neutral, and earth conductors, which confirms that the insulation is intact and can prevent electrical leakage or short circuits.
  4. Earth Leakage Testing: Our PAT testing Croydon also includes earth leakage testing, which determines if there is any current leakage from the appliance.
  5. Functional Testing: Functional testing involves checking the operation and functionality of the appliance. The tester may activate switches, controls, and safety features to ensure they function correctly.
  6. Testing Documentation and Reporting: The local PAT testing service provider prepares detailed testing reports and documentation. These documents typically include the appliance’s identification details, test results, testing dates, and any identified issues or recommendations.
  7. Appliance Labelling: After the testing, appliances are labelled with a sticker or tag indicating their test status, such as “Passed” or “Tested.” The label typically includes the testing date and the due date for the next testing cycle.

Is PAT Testing a Legal Requirement?

PAT testing or portable appliance testing is not a legal requirement in the UK. However, legal obligations and regulations related to electrical safety apply to employers, landlords, and duty-holders. These regulations require individuals and organisations to ensure the safety of electrical appliances and equipment on their premises. The main legislation pertaining to electrical safety in the UK includes:

  1. Health and Safety at Work Act 1974: This legislation places a general duty on employers and duty holders to ensure the safety, health, and welfare of employees and others who may be affected by their work activities. This includes ensuring the safety of electrical equipment.
  2. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989: This requires employers and duty holders to maintain electrical systems and equipment safely to prevent danger. Employers and duty-holders are responsible for implementing adequate maintenance programs, inspections, and testing to ensure electrical safety.

While PAT testing is not explicitly mandated by law, it is often considered a best practice and recommended by regulatory bodies, such as the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), to fulfil the legal obligations related to electrical safety.
