PAT testing is a process where mains electrical appliances are routinely tested for safety. Also known as ‘in-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment’, portable appliance testing is made up of a series of smaller tests, including a thorough visual inspection (over 95% of unsafe appliances are highlighted at this stage), earth resistance & continuity tests, an insulation resistance test and in some circumstances (power cords & extension leads) a polarity check. Combined with regular user-checks, this process is used to reduce risk within businesses of all descriptions.
