I’m going to let you into a little secret; you do need to get electrical appliances tested. How many times have you heard someone say “I don’t need PAT testing”… well they do. Let me explain:
You are required by law to maintain electrical equipment as safe; as a requirement of the Electricity at Work Act 1989 as part of the Health and Safety at Work Act; in consequence inspection and testing is needed to determine if maintenance is required.
Legislation doesn’t mention “PAT Testing” because “PAT testing” is a slang term used because everyone knows it, as a shortened version of Portable Appliance Testing which is the inspection and testing of portable electrical appliances.
