Electrical safety testing, commonly referred to as portable appliance testing (PAT), is a legal requirement in the UK.

Companies, businesses and individuals who ignore or neglect the need for inspection and testing can receive heavy penalties, should they be caught out.

All persons at their place of work have a duty of care for the health and safety of themselves and others.

The key to all this is regulation 4(2) of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1998.

It states “As may be necessary to prevent danger, all systems shall be maintained so as to prevent as far as is reasonably practical, such danger”.

This regulation thus infers some form of preventative maintenance, to detect faults in equipment and systems before they become dangerous.
