Safety Test Spotlight – Annual Portable Appliance Test

This week, we look at the examination of portable electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use within a property.
Commonly referred to as the PAT test, this applies to all portable electrical appliances within the property. A thorough visual inspection of the condition of the appliance itself plus cabling is followed by electrical tests using specialist testing equipment. Where possible, integrated appliances, such as washing machines and fridges/freezers, are also checked. Free standing appliances are considered portable and therefore also subject to testing.
