IMPORTANT ELECTRICAL FACTS
The Health & Safety Executive states that 25% of all reportable electrical accidents involve portable appliances. The Electricity at Work Regulations place a legal responsibility on employers, employees and self-employed persons to comply with the provisions of the regulations and take reasonably practicable steps to ensure that no danger results from the use of such equipment. This in effect requires the implementation of a systematic and regular program of maintenance, inspection and testing. The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances:
- Where appliances are used by employees.
- Where the public may use appliances in establishments such as hospitals, schools, hotels, shops etc.
- Where appliances are supplied or hired.
- Where appliances are repaired or serviced.
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) involves conducting a series of electronic tests and a thorough visual inspection to all portable electronic equipment within a workplace or building. The desired outcome is to ascertain whether or not the appliance is suitable and safe for use. In order to test each piece of equipment properly, it must first be disconnected from the supply socket and inspected visually by a competent Engineer/Operative.
